San Marcos Parent-Child Workshop Hosting ‘Sip, Sample & Savor’ Fundraiser

The San Marcos Parent-Child Workshop will present the 25th annual spring fundraiser and auction, “Sip, Sample & Savor,” from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 10 at Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church, 1205 San Antonio Creek Road.

This year, nearly 300 guests, including parents, alumni and community members, will spend a lovely evening nestled between ocean and mountain views as they sample delicious food and beverage offerings from local restaurants.

Andersen’s Danish Restaurant and Bakery, Beck’s Bakery and Bites, Brasil Arts Café, Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, Del Pueblo Café, Delgado’s Mexican Food, Excalibur Hard Cider, Fresh Market, Jack’s Bistro and Famous Bagels, Just Good Energy, Lori’s Original Lemonade, Nimita’s Cuisine, Organic Soup Kitchen, The Palace Grill, Pampered Palette, Renaud’s Patisserie & Bistro, Silver Wines, Telegraph Brewing Co. and World Cuisine Express.

The mission of the San Marcos Parent Child Workshop is to create a supportive community of diverse families where parents engage actively with young children, create a positive learning environment and build skills that promote healthy social and emotional growth. The benefit to children, parents and our community is significant and lasting.

Our preschool has launched more than 1,000 children into their school careers.

Our cooperative preschool introduces children ages 2 to 5 to early literacy, social and physical development and conflict resolution in a nurturing learning environment. SMPCW parents appreciate a strong resource for expanding their parenting skills, involvement in their local community, family advocacy and volunteer opportunities that let them share their strengths and talents. It is our philosophy, and experience, that better parents and stronger families create a better community.

— Gloria Sanchez-Arreola represents the San Marcos Parent-Child Workshop.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
