Show Your Love for Desert Cancer Foundation While Celebrating Valentine’s Day

By Chris Clemens

As we ring in a new year, Desert Cancer Foundation is offering a virtual wine tasting event, to enjoy from the comfort of your own home on February 13, 2021. As a virtual event via Zoom, attendees will enjoy Valentine’s Day, discovering a variety of fine wines through an interactive and educational format, while connecting with other community members and raising money for cancer care. Proceeds from the event support Desert Cancer Foundation in paying for cancer care to Coachella Valley residents who need the financial assistance.

The hour and a half event will be led by a Sommelier offering expert guidance on this tasting experience while sampling whites, reds and Rosé varietals. The wines are hidden gems bestowed from boutique, family-run vineyards from California’s top regions.

The presenting sponsor, El Paseo Jewelers, is adding to the romance by donating a 7-carat diamond tennis bracelet as an opportunity draw for one lucky winner, for $100 per ticket.

The cost of the virtual wine tasting event is $150 per couple. A California Wine Flight package with eight 6-ounce bottles of wine, and an appetizing Charcuterie presentation prepared by Jensen’s Foods with a variety of cheeses, nuts, and dry fruit for food pairings to match the selected fine wines will be delivered days prior to the event. Every dollar raised from the ticket sales and raffle entries translates into over $10 in cancer-related services.

The presenting sponsor is El Paseo Jewelers. Other sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please contact Eevet Edens at 760-773-6554 or email

Tickets are available until January 30, 2021, and can be purchased at or by calling 760-773-6554. Participants must be 21 years or older.
