Local nonprofit Saffron Strand—an organization dedicated to offering resources, training and vocational rehabilitation to Albuquerque's homeless population—hosts a fundraising Wine Tasting and Silent Auction on Sunday, Oct. 27 from 5:30 to 8:30pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Grand Hall. This event features delicious tapas and hors d'oeuvres, a variety of fine local wines for tasting and the dirty, mangy jazz of Le Chat Lunatique. In addition, Bernalillo County Commissioner Debbie O'Malley, homeless advocate Ilse Biel and Rev. Amani Malaika of the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living are slated to address attendees about the latest efforts to assist our city's homeless citizens. All proceeds go toward providing Saffron Strand clients with necessary services. Tickets for this important gathering cost $75 per person and can be purchased by calling 510-691-7026 or visiting (August March)
