Many a glass was raised at the sixth annual Grapes for Grads, hosted by Rotary Club of Laguna Beach, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.
The wine tasting/birthday bash, held April 17 at Tivoli Too, raised funds for scholarships for Laguna Beach High School graduates and students attending the Laguna College of Art & Design.
"Grapes for Grads is a good fit with Rotary," said Bank of America Vice President Jeff Redeker, who co-chaired the event with Stephen Dotorotos.
Rotary, which jointly sponsored the previous fundraisers with the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce, became the sole host this year.
Laguna's Rotary Club was founded in 1931 by 12 local business men. The club now has 54 men and women actively supporting the international organization's goals. They meet Fridays at the Aliso Creek Inn.
President Linda Saville attended the fundraiser and helped Mayor Toni Iseman cut the birthday cake for the event at Montage Resort & Spa.
