2013 Sangria Soiree

Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation’s 2nd Annual Sangria Soiree took place at The Villa at Sunstone Winery, on Sunday, August 11th and was attended by 131 guests. Guests enjoyed sampling paella and tapas, while tasting tequilas and sangria made from wine by Sunstone Winery, Palmina Wines and D'Alfonso-Curran Wines. They also bid on one-of a-kind silent auction items.


Sangria Soiree featured tapas by Rudy’s Restaurant and the best paella from Viva Paella cooked right on site. Guests will also enjoy authentic tequilas, Spanish style flatbreads prepared by The Chef’s Touch in an outdoor oven, and cheese platters from Ono Catering.
