The Art Place, Palm Desert Design District, is excited to be helping the hungry as a part of the Art Walk & Wine Tasting, Wednesday March 7, 2018.  The Art Walk & Wine Tasting has been an on-going event happening on the first Wednesday of each month and benefits local charities. In the past, The Art Place has helped Coachella Valley organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Desert, Guide Dogs of the Desert and Loving All Animals with their efforts.

In March, guest will get a chance to help FIND which is an acronym for: Food In Need of Distribution.  The FIND Food Bank is dedicated to relieving hunger, the causes of hunger, and the problems associated with hunger through awareness, education, and mobilization of resources and community involvement. Their vison is to create a community that is free of hunger and food insecurity. You are encouraged to bring canned or non-perishable foods to be collected by FIND volunteers to help feed the hungry right here in the Coachella Valley. If you would like to find out how you can help FIND, you can reach them at (760) 775-3663.

Other additions to the monthly event include a new wine sponsor. The Desert Wine Shop on 111 is excited to get involved with the community. Matt Young is the general manager of Desert Wine Shop on 111 and grew up in the restaurant industry with his family who were restauranteurs. He moved to the Coachella Valley in 2006 and worked in top name restaurants, as well as fine wine retail, with companies such as Morton’s The Steakhouse, Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion Restaurant and Whole Foods Market.


In addition to the helping local charities and sampling wine, guest can stroll the galleries at The Art Place to find very unique art and amazing sculptures. Other favorite activities include watching live art demonstration and shopping for fine furniture and décor.  While you’re walking through the galleries, make sure and visit Los Tios Tacos Catering who will be serving up tasty tacos and cold drinks. Also, back by popular demand guests can dance and sing to the music of Mike O’Bryan on guitar.

This FREE event from 4pm to 7pm is a great time for the whole family. The Art Place, Palm Desert Design District is located near the Hovley Ln Post Office at 41801 Corporate Way in Palm Desert.
