OXNARD, Calif.- On Sunday, April 17, 2011

Oxnard Rotary along with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oxnard and Port Hueneme’s Young Professionals Network will hold its 3rd Annual Wine/Art Trail—Rediscovering Downtown Oxnard, presented by Alert Real Estate Services, an event benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs After-School Music Program. The event, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm will start in downtown Oxnard’s Heritage Square and feature an eight-stop walking tour. The trail will take participants through a fun tour tasting fine local wines and food offerings while enjoying the unique artists’ exhibits at each location. The tour will include Heritage Square, Rancho Ventavo Cellars, Downtown Center for the Arts, Carnegie Museum, Alert Management, Tomas Café, The Kitchen, Sugar Beets, and Fresh & Fabulous. The official wine sponsor of the event will be the wineries of the Ventura County Wine Trail.
Event co-chair Kate Koslosky, Oxnard Rotary member stated “”In our third year of the Wine and Art Trail, we are looking forward to raising even more money for the Boys and Girls Club music program. The money provides funds to continue their vocal and instrumental programs through purchasing instruments and hiring teachers. This year we are excited to be partnering with the Ventura County
Wine Trail and also to bring 3 additional wine tasting locations to our Trail for a total of 8 locations. The Rotary Club of Oxnard is really interested in the promotion of the downtown Oxnard area and this has been a very productive event to spotlight the City.”
The event will conclude back at Heritage Square where participants will be treated to a performance by the “Voices of Hope” Choir and Orchestra. “Voices of Hope” is an important after-school educational opportunity and a collaborative effort with the Rio School District and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oxnard and Port Hueneme. The performance consists of an orchestra and choir. There are currently 85 students participating in each. Over 500 children have auditioned. Many students have been waiting outside the music classroom eagerly asking when they will have the opportunity to take music lessons. For at-risk youth, music education can make all the difference.
The performance will be followed by a raffle offering fabulous prizes. Individual tickets are $50. Tickets are available online at http://winearttrail.eventbrite.com or at The Boys & Girls Clubs (5th St. location), Oxnard Chamber of Commerce, Herzog Wine Cellars, Oxnard Downtown Management District and The California Welcome Center.
