Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation to Combine Sangria, Flamenco for Soiree

The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation’s third annual Sangria Soiree will take place at The Villa at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, July 20.

This year’s event, supported by many Santa Ynez locals, is quickly building excitement as a popular local event. Guests will enjoy sampling paella and tapas, while tasting tequilas and sangria made from wine by Sunstone Winery, Palmina Wines and D'Alfonso-Curran Wines.

Bid on one-of a-kind silent auction items such as staycations, getaway packages and private cooking lessons by Chef Kurt Alldredge, along with other local luxury items — all to benefit the financial and emotional support program services offered by the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation.

Sangria Soiree’s master of ceremonies, radio personality Tyler Story, will host this beautiful afternoon featuring tapas by Paloma Restaurant and authentic Spanish paella from Viva Paella cooked in a traditional paellera. 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. Enjoy the breathtaking views as you delight in flamenco performances accompanied by live acoustic flamenco guitar.

“In 2013, Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation provided services to a record 664 individuals in the Tri-Counties region," Executive Director Lindsey Guerrero said. "North Santa Barbara County represented a significant percentage, 27 percent of those we served. Fundraising events like the Sangria Soiree are so important for our organization because they provide an excellent opportunity to bring the Santa Ynez Valley community together in support of an imperative cause — supporting a child diagnosed with pediatric cancer.”

Tickets are $80 each and $150 for a couple’s ticket. VIP tickets, exciting sponsorships packages and raffle tickets are also available. All proceeds from Sangria Soiree, to be held at The Villa at Sunstone Winery at 125 Refugio Road in Santa Ynez, benefit Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation.

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!
