Wine tasting at Bistro St. Germain benefits Home Forever

It’s always fun to go wine tasting, but what if they threw in a buffet of delicious appetizers and desserts and the proceeds went to a really good cause?

That’s what Seal Beach’s Bistro St. Germain is planning on May 22. There will also be an silent auction and everything benefits Home Forever , a local non-profit that helps abused and neglected children and their families.

The event will be from 6 to 9 p.m. on a Monday night, when the Bistro is usually closed. Cost is $40 per person, which includes all the food and wine. People can pay at the door, but reservations can be made online at
