Quakes to host third annual Wine & Dine event

Event to take place on May 18 at Guglielmo Winery

SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club will host its Wine and Dine with the Earthquakes event on Sunday, May 18 at Guglielmo Winery in Morgan Hill.

For a third-consecutive year, guests will enjoy tasting a selection of Guglielmo's red and white wines while mingling with Earthquakes players, coaches and front office staff at the Villa Emile Event Center. They will also experience the irresistible charm of a vintage cobblestone courtyard, a picturesque backdrop with vineyards and rolling hills and a wine bar and arbor still draped with grapes on vines planted by the Guglielmo family three generations ago.

The event will feature a buffet dinner courtesy of Cosmopolitan Catering, live auction, raffle and grape stomp as well as celebrity bartending from Earthquakes players.

Guglielmo Winery has graciously offered to donate 10 percent of all their wine bottle sales and $10 for each person who signs up to be a wine group member to the San Jose Earthquakes Community Fund. All proceeds raised will go to the San Jose Earthquakes 501(c)3 non-profit, the San Jose Earthquakes Community Fund.

Individual tickets are on sale for $110 per person. Tables are also available for purchase at $1,200 each with the option to choose your favorite player or coach to sit at the table (subject to availability on a first come, first served basis). Guests must be 21 years or older to attend.

Last year’s event drew over 150 fans and raised $40,000 for the San Jose Earthquakes Community Fund.
