NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - March 20, 2015 - PRLog -- NEWPORT BEACH, CA- Reveling in fine wines, delish dining and philanthropic spirit, guests of this year’s Pacific Coast Wine Festival (PCWF), which took place at the five-diamond Island Hotel last Saturday night, raised their glasses, paddles—and more than $200,000 for Pacific Symphony’s artistic and education programs! Attracting a sold-out crowd of more than 300 guests, the festival offered an evening of elegance and fun as gentlemen came groomed, sporting dapper suits, and ladies dolled up in glamourous cocktail dresses. Sparkling wine glasses chimed as sommeliers poured reds and whites from vineyards around the world and guests bustled about enjoying the tastings and considering more than 100 silent auction items. Temperatures rose as the three lots closed, and guests rushed to place a final bid on their favorite items. A scrumptious wine-paired feast was served in the ballroom, and guests delighted in an inspiring performance of “The Final Countdown” by members of Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra. The dynamic live auction concluded the evening and provided rare wines, dining experiences and wine vacations to claim. Gourmet chocolate and port were served on the way out, and guests left full, happy and if they were lucky, with bottles of delectable wines and prizes to take home.

This year, Jaguar Land Rover Aston Martin Newport Beach donated a series of auction items, which included a Jaguar F-TYPE track experience. In its third year as the automotive sponsor, the dealership has been able to continuously provide support for the Pacific Symphony’s educational programs. “We truly believe in the power of music and its ability to connect and inspire the local community. Our goal is to bring music to the forefront and to show that Orange County is a rapidly growing hub for the arts” says Dermot Brennan, VP of Pendragon North America. He adds “We are excited to continue our partnership with The Pacific Symphony, bringing this aspiration closer to reality.” Jaguar Land Rover Aston Martin Newport Beach had a selection of vehicles on display at The PCWF.
