Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine

For 16 years, Wine D’Vine has been Walden Family Services’ signature event, raising unrestricted funds to support children, youth and families with foster care, adoption, and transitional housing programs and services. We place special emphasis on supporting children who are medically fragile and those with special needs. The evening features fine wine from California’s leading vineyards, delicious gourmet cuisine, and live entertainment. The evening will begin at 6:00 PM with a champagne reception, followed by a 3-course dinner, live auction and exclusive concert. We hope you will join chairs Lisa & Raul Albanez and Nettie & Tom Keck this year at Wine D’Vine and help us continue to ensure that children in foster care have the chance they deserve to reach their greatest potential.

Walden is thrilled to announce this year’s headliner, TRAIN!

Concert-goers will experience an intimate evening with TRAIN as they perform to a limited number of guests. The multi-GRAMMY and Billboard award-winning San Francisco-based band has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and is best known for hits such as “Hey Soul Sister,” “Meet Virginia,” “Drops of Jupiter,” “Calling All Angels,” and many others that have placed TRAIN in multi-platinum territory.

Past Wine D’Vine headliners include John Fogerty, Peter Frampton, and The Moody Blues – all of whom performed concert sets that will be remembered as once-in-a-lifetime experiences by those lucky enough to attend.
