Harvest for Hope

The Emilio Nares Foundation is hosting the 18th Annual Harvest for Hope Food & Wine Tasting Fundraiser featuring some of California’s tastiest bites and sips. The event will take place on Sunday, September 12 from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. at Coasterra on Harbor Island. 100% of Harvest for Hope’s proceeds go toward ENF’s free programs for low-income families whose children are battling cancer. ENF has raised $100,000 so far, so we’re in the final stretch of sharing the mission of the organization before it’s time to celebrate!
