‘Flavors of Life' will feature fine wine, cuisine and fundraising.

The 17th annual Benefit Wine Auction to raise funds for the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center's Home Delivered Meals and related programs will move to a new home at the Mann Biomedical park in Valencia.

The wine auction, held since inception in Juan Alonso's beautiful backyard of Le Chene French Cuisine, far up Sierra Highway in Agua Dulce, the wine auction will move west to its new home on Saturday, Sept. 27.

Christened the "Flavors of Life," the event will feature wine, food and entertainment.

"This year's event is a special tribute to the international ‘Flavors of Life' that are reflected in the cultural backgrounds of the many seniors who benefit from the Senior Center's vital services," said Kathy Crone, director of development for the Senior Center.

"We're excited about the cuisine, the wines and the live entertainment that will be part of this celebration."

Guests will experience a five-course buffet with an international flavor, provided by Be A Guest catering. A live jazz quartet from Tony Capko Entertainment will perform, and guests will also have the chance to bid on numerous live and silent auction items including rare premium wines, special "thrill rides" and other unique opportunities.

In addition, the event will salute former Santa Clarita Mayor Jo Anne Darcy, a longtime community activist and senior advocate who was a driving force behind the wine auction and its establishment as one of the SCV's premier fundraising events.

"We're so grateful for the people like Jo Anne Darcy and Juan Alonso who pioneered the event and have made the Senior Benefit Auction so successful over the years," Crone said.

The Santa Clarita City Council will serve as the honorary chair of the event.
