Home Start, Inc. to Host 13th Annual Hallo-Wine Fall Festival Virtually on October 24, 2020

Event held annually in recognition of October being National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

San Diego CA— Home Start, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to child abuse prevention and to providing evidence-based family strengthening services, will host its 13th Annual Hallo-Wine Fall Festival on Saturday, October 24, 2020. This year, the event has been re-imagined into a virtual fun and interactive afternoon for all food and drink lovers to enjoy! 

Instead of hosting an in-person beverage and food tasting event, individuals will be treated to a tasting box filled with samples from a variety of vendor partners from around San Diego, including The University Club Atop Symphony Towers, Bivouac Ciderworks, Panini Kabob, Trevi Hills Winery, and more. Each box will feature enough tastings for two participants! 

Guests will join an interactive experience the afternoon of the event at 4:30 p.m. where viewers will learn about locally crafted cider, wine, beer, and specialty cocktails from Home Start’s vendor partners. Additionally, there will be trivia rounds with chances to win fabulous prizes and a Home Start client will be sharing their personal story.  

Laura Tancredi-Baese, Home Start Chief Executive Officer, shares: “I’m incredibly grateful for the community’s support during this unprecedented time. Today, more than ever, families are struggling and need the resources that the funds raised from Hallo-Wine will provide. I hope many will join us for our first-ever fall festival virtual experience.” 

There are three options available when purchasing Hallo-Wine tasting boxes. For $100, participants will receive food samples, tastes of craft beer, cider, wine, and spirits, two (2) Home Start tasting cups, one (1) mini Home Start Bright Futures Candle, and various gift certificates and discount coupons to local restaurants and vendors. Guests will select from a variety of locations to pick up the tasting box either the day before the event or the day of the event. For $150, participants will receive all previously named goodies plus one (1) full-size premium beverage, a full size Bright Futures candle, and delivery to your home or office by Home Start board members and volunteers on either the day before the event or the day of the event. Delivery is valid for San Diego County addresses only. The third option is an alcohol-free tasting box for $50. 

Every dollar raised from the 13th Annual Hallo-Wine Fall Festival will help Home Start serve victims of domestic violence in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and provide services to local families affected by COVID-19. Co-presenting sponsors for this year’s event include Cal Coast Credit Union and Molina Healthcare. For more information about the event and to purchase your tasting box, please visit www.hallowine.org
