2022 Whiskey and Wine Event
After a year delay, The Sierra Madre Community Foundation's Whiskey & Wine Event was held on April 2nd at the stunning Mia Italia residence. This year's event had over 21 whiskey's and 8 wines and champagnes. 165 people attended, raising $12,000, which far exceeded last event's record of $8,700! It was great to see and meet so many people whose generous donations will be used to support grants for local activities, events and programs.
