Walden Family Services is excited to announce that guitarist and rock icon Peter Frampton will take the stage for an exclusive performance to benefit foster children, youth and families at the organization’s annual Wine D’Vine Gala on Friday, October 13 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine.
With such legendary hits as “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Do You Feel Like I Do,” Frampton is one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes collaborations with such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and remains one of the top-selling live records of all time.
“We are thrilled that Peter Frampton is going to take the stage at Wine D’Vine,” said Walden Family Services CEO, Teresa Stivers. “He is a world-renowned performer and we are excited he was available to perform for our Wine D’Vine event guests.”
Walden Family Services provides foster and adoptive homes to children with a focus on developmental disabilities and special health care needs. For older foster youth, Walden provides transitional housing , employment and educational support for youth to successfully transition from foster care to adulthood.
Wine D’Vine is Walden’s largest fundraising event of the year. The 2017 event, chaired by Caroline and Nicolas Nierenberg and Cheryl and Jeff Smith, will feature a 3-course dinner, wine from California’s leading vineyards, a live auction and private concert.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available for organizations and individuals to highlight their commitment to ensuring our most vulnerable children have a brighter future. Tickets go on sale in August and can be purchased at https://waldenfamily.org/wine-dvine-2017/.
“Given Peter Frampton’s popularity, tickets will sell out fast so we suggest ordering tickets as soon as they are available,” said Stivers.
Wine D’Vine is attended by San Diego’s elite business leaders, corporate partners and philanthropic supporters who seek to make the community a better place to live, work and raise families. The event will specifically honor longtime Walden supporters Mary Alice and Ron Brady with the Fostering Hearts Legacy Award. All proceeds from the event will benefit Walden Family Services and its mission.
