We’re back, baby!

Please join us for

Wine D’Vine 2021

Friday, October 8, 2021

Please join us for Wine D’Vine as Walden celebrates 45 years of supporting children, youth and families with foster care, adoption, and transitional housing programs and services. The unrestricted proceeds raised from this event will go toward the essential services and innovative programs that our foster community relies on.

This year’s event will be set at the historic Pacific Beach estate of renowned landscape architect Kate Sessions. The evening features fine wine from California’s leading vineyards, delicious gourmet cuisine catered by Pamplemousse Grille, and live entertainment.

We hope you will join chairs Jackie Helm and Kimberly Lee at Wine D’Vine 2021 and help us continue to ensure that children in foster care have every chance to reach their greatest potential and live happy and fulfilling lives.
