The 13th annual Pacific Beach Town Council (PBTC) wine and beer tasting and silent auction to benefit local schools is set to welcome residents and neighbors Sunday, Aug. 24 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Table 926, located at 926 Turquoise St.
“It’s the largest fundraiser of the year for PBTC, and it benefits our community,” said the group’s current president, Alan Harris. “We’ll have a silent auction that a lot of local businesses donate to.”
The event is being held in the parking lot of Table 926.
“We close off the area and set up tables and umbrellas, and we’ll have a buffet,” said Harris, noting the restaurant, which sponsors this year’s event, is one of the Town Council’s and the community’s biggest benefactors.
The PBTC president said schools will be on the receiving end of wine and beer-tasting proceeds, as will other deserving community-service projects.
“The money from the event supports neighborhood cleanups, the Graffiti Cleanup Day we have once a year, the PB holiday parade and concerts,” Harris said. “We also make grants to local schools. In previous years, we’ve donated money to all six schools in Pacific Beach.”
Harris said fundraising event proceeds helped start the surf club at PB Middle School, known as the PB Locals.
“We’ve also donated funds that have been used for athletic uniforms at Mission Bay High School,” Harris said.
The event turnout is expected to exceed 100 people, and the dress is casual.
“It’s just a fun event with a lot of appetizers, food and raffle prizes,” he said. “Come out and support the community.”
Tickets are $30 per person and are available at the PBTC office at the front of Union Bank at 1706 Garnet Ave. or by calling (858) 483-6666.
