Dear Friends,

To our fellow wine lovers, foodies, and supporters, this message is for you. We are sad to announce that the Great Wine Festival will not be returning to the Great Park in Irvine this year.

As you know, the Great Wine Festival is a fundraiser for the ​L​egal Aid Society of Orange County (LASOC), which is currently at risk of losing over 55% of its funding due to proposed federal budget cuts. This puts everything that we do at risk, including the provision of free legal services to ​help ​
thousands of families, children, seniors, homeless residents, ​and veterans across LA and Orange County.

Our focus this year is establishing our Voices for Justice event as our primary annual fundraising event each October. You can support LASOC by submitting award nominations, becoming a sponsor, and joining us on October 12, 2017 at the Bowers Museum. Click here to learn more about our cause and our annual awards dinner. There will, of course, be great wine at the event!

We are working hard to bring the Great Wine Festival event back in the near future and will keep everyone posted on developments. If you have any questions, email


Kate Marr
Executive Director
