Why attend Cheers to Charity? Why spend an evening sipping a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon at beautiful Aviator Park? Why enjoy a variety of foods, wines, beers, coffee and desserts - while enjoying life under a beautiful Tehachapi night? Because your participation matters. Your attendance makes a difference. Your ticket purchase funds dozens of nonprofit organizations as they carry out their unique missions.
Cheers to Charity is a great event supporting area nonprofits. In addition to delicious California wines, expertly-made home brew and craft beer, mouth-watering tapas, delicious food plates, smooth cigars, music, dancing and a fun silent auction, the event makes our community stronger, our neighborhoods healthier and our residents safer.
