The event will include tastings of Mendocino’s outstanding organically grown wines, paired with scrumptious organic appetizers from executive chef Alan Kantor of MacCallum House. Coffee provided by Thanksgiving Coffee Company roasters of gourmet Shade Grown, Fair Trade, Certified Organic coffee.

The Cancer Resource Center of Mendocino County serves more than 300 new clients each year. Established in 1995, it is the first stand-alone cancer resource center between Marin County and the California-Oregon border.
