Raise a glass of California wine at the Arts Club’s annual fundraiser

The Arts Club Theatre Company is behind some of Vancouver’s best and liveliest theatre. This season alone, the company has brought audiences the Broadway hit Fun Home, the stunning, award-winning Angels in America Part II: Perestroika, and the family favourite Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

To help deliver these and other great shows every season, the Arts Club holds an annual fundraiser. The California Wine Fair Fundraiser is an all-inclusive, social tasting event that lets wine lovers sample selections from the Golden State.

This year’s event boasts a selection of over 400 wines from 150 of California’s top wineries. The tasting takes place Monday, April 9 at the Vancouver Convention Centre East (999 Canada Place). To find out more about the event, and upcoming Arts Club shows, keep reading.

Wines from the Napa Valley, Humboldt County, Santa Clara Valley, and more will be poured. The fundraiser will also include a silent auction, featuring wines only available in California: St. Supéry Estate Vineyards, Heitz Wine Cellars, and Treasury Wine Estates. Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on over 30 auction packages, including weekend getaways and more.

Founded in 1964, The Arts Club Theatre Company is Canada’s largest not-for-profit urban theatre company. The company offers theatre at three venues, including the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, Granville Island Stage, and the Goldcorp Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre.

Currently, the company is presenting Forget About Tomorrow (on until March 25), an original comedy-drama about a family dealing with one member’s early-onset Alzheimer’s. Upcoming productions include The Humans (March 22-April 22), a 2016 Tony Award-winning family drama/comedy, and Misery (April 5-May 5). The latter is based on the Stephen King novel (and subsequent film) of the same name.

Looking further ahead, shows include Me and You (April 12-May 6), a new work for the Arts Club; Mamma Mia! (May 10-July 22), the hit musical featuring the music of ABBA; and Once (June 4-July 29), another hit musical.
