VOICES Sonoma, a program of On The Move, will hold its first-ever community fundraiser on Sunday, June 29, at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards.
VOICES Sonoma brings together partnering agencies to provide housing, education, employment and wellness services to youth, ages 16 to 24, who are aging out of foster care with little or no support. Created and run by former foster youth, VOICES is the first organization of its kind in the nation. MusicWorks!/Sonoma will perform well-loved classic tunes by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George Gershwin. Tickets include an array of hors d’oeuvres prior to the performance, which starts at 6 p.m. A no-host Jacuzzi wine bar will serve four of their best wines.
