The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar presents “The Great Crush” fundraiser on Sunday, October 20, 2019 from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. benefitting the Arthritis Foundation in Newport Beach. The event will feature a wine tasting with more than 80 wines, including many unique finds from boutique wineries spanning the globe. Guests will also have the opportunity to partake in an early tasting during a Yacht Tour through the Newport Marina prior to the main event. The fundraiser will include a sampling of passed hors d’oeuvres by The Winery’s Executive Chef and Partner, Yvon Goetz, along with live and silent auctions.
"This is our ninth grand fundraising event, which we previously called ‘Sunday in the Vineyard’ and, after a brief hiatus, we are extremely excited to bring back this beloved event that has raised approximately $498,000 to date,” commented JC Clow, Founding Partner at The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar. “The goal of the event, which is now ‘The Great Crush,’ is to make a positive impact by raising significant funds for worthy organizations, such as this year’s beneficiary, the Arthritis Foundation. This is an organization pursuing a cure for America's biggest cause of disability, while championing the fight against arthritis with life-changing resources, science, advocacy and community connections.”

Tickets are $150 per guest, which includes the opportunity to sample more than 80 wines and enjoy delicious tray-passed appetizers, all while supporting the Arthritis Foundation.
