Beach education – Manhattan Beach Wine auction

The Manhattan Beach Wine Auction is the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation’s only annual fundraiser. But it’s a strategy that has proven successful for a quarter of a century. The 25th Annual Manhattan Wine Auction at the Manhattan Country Club on June 8 attracted over 2,000 people and raised $1.2 million. This year the foundation will contributed $6.8 million towards music, arts, writing, PE and STEM programs, as well as  counseling and class size reduction. Over 40 local restaurants and more than 80 regional wineries, breweries and distilleries contributed to this year’s success. For more information visit
