The Illinois chapter of Make A Wish is holding a special Wine/Beer tasting fund raiser on August 16th.  This is a great way to give a kid an experience of a life time and have some fun at the same time.  GNS, Michael’s and North Buena Deli and Wine are sponsoring the event that will be hosted by George Cavrilos who is a Make a Wish board member.

Buena Park’s own Steve Mendivil who is a sommelier for the Michelin rated L2O restaurant will be pouring the wine and explaining its special characteristics and origins. Over on the beer side will be a brew master from Brickstone Brewery.

As far as the food is concerned, you won’t be disappointed.  There will be lots of it and it will be delicious.  So come out for this worthy cause and enjoy great food, drink and fellowship with your neighbors.

Here are the particulars:
