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.
Although Wine D’Vine 2021 is sold out, it’s still possible to make a donation to support foster children and youth.

Fostering Hearts honorees Ed & Sue Earl
Walden is proud to honor Sue & Ed Earl with the Fostering Hearts Legacy Award for their longtime commitment to our foster youth and families.
During Ed’s service with Walden, he has served in several capacities including Board Chair, Vice Chair, and currently serves on our Audit committee. Through his experience mentoring foster youth and while serving on the Walden Board, Ed has seen first hand the impact that Walden has had on numerous children’s lives. As a result, he is a committed advocate for post emancipation programs like Walden’s Transitional Housing Placement program.
Every dollar donated makes our work possible—and 88¢ of every dollar goes directly to programs for our children and youth.
