WATSONVILLE — The 30th annual Evening of Wine and Roses will take place Nov. 1 at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.

Hosted by the Pajaro Valley Community Health Trust, the event serves as a fundraiser in support of the health care needs of Pajaro Valley residents.

Co-sponsored by the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association, the Evening of Wine and Roses offers residents of the region a festive fall venue for enjoying wines from 24 Santa Cruz Mountains wineries. The event includes a wide range of hors d’oeuvres provided by local volunteer cooks and 16 selected area restaurants and caterers.

Roses cultivated in the Pajaro Valley will be displayed throughout the evening and sold by the dozen. Visitors can also take home a commemorative wine glass.

Live and silent auctions will offer guests an opportunity to bid on gourmet dinners, gifts, double magnums of specially bottled wines, collectibles, art and jewelry.

The auction will also include a recent original oil on canvas painting by Capitola artist Ed Penniman that was used as this year’s Wine and Roses poster.

“In 1983 I developed Guillain-Barré syndrome and that tenderized me to people that are on a path not of their choosing,” Penniman said in his Capitola studio Wednesday. “It made sense for me to give back to the community and share what has been given to me. The Evening of Wine and Roses is a great way to do that. Art provides a wonderful cross-cultural experience that allows me to penetrate deeper into different cultures and affirm my belief that the family of man is one.”
