An Evening of Wine, Music and Celebration Benefitting Catholic Charities Children and Youth Services

Catholic Charities presents Hope Uncorked, a special evening of wine, music and celebration, benefitting Bay Area kids in need, at Yoshi's San Francisco at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 1, 2014. 

Hope Uncorked will feature live music from Groupo Falso Baiano and Lorca Hart Trio, as well as live and silent auctions featuring items ranging from affordable cases to rare wines from around the world. Grupo Falso Baiano is a choro group that offers a window into the history and diverse culture of Brazil. Choro is one of Brazil's earliest popular musics, dating back to the late 1800s, and, similar to jazz, it reflects the melding of African rhythms with a melodic and harmonic structure closely resembling Baroque Classical music. Lorca Hart Trio's music is thoughtful, dynamic, and vibrant, rooted in the jazz tradition and yet contemporary.

Catholic Charities’ 18th annual fall philanthropic event, formerly known as Vincenzo Wine Tasting and Auction, Hope Uncorked will directly benefit youth suffering from abuse, neglect and emotional disorders who find safe haven at the St. Vincent’s School for Boys in Marin and the San Francisco Boys and Girls Homes.  The event will also benefit the Treasure Island Child Development Center, the Canal Family Support Program in Marin and Maureen and Craig Sullivan Youth Services in San Francisco, which provide childcare, after-school and summer enrichment programs for low-income families.
