Sip the Peninsula
The Monterey Bay Officers’ Spouses Club (MBOSC) is hosting the 35th annual Sip the Peninsula, a charitable fundraiser full of fine wine and great beer that are local to the Central Coast. There will also be an auction to include fantastic items and services from around the Monterey Peninsula. Our event will be held on Saturday, the 7th of March 2015 from 6 to 10 p.m. in the beautiful Barbra McNitt Ballroom of the Historic Hotel Del Monte. The building is located on board the Installation of Naval Support Activity Monterey (NSAM) also known as the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS).
This is our organization's largest fundraising event of the year and attracts over 100 local businesses as well as several hundred guests. The MBOSC is committed to the tradition of giving back to both our local and military communities. Past recipients of the auction'sfundraising efforts include: Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society, The FoodBank of Monterey, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and local PTA education programs.This June we were able to donate $24,000 that we raised over the course ofour 2014 fiscal year. That allowed us to donate 19 grants throughoutthe local and military community and 8 scholarships to military dependents across the country!!
Wineries and breweries from all over the peninsula come out for a night of fun. Auction items range from dinners and spa packages to local area experiences and more. Join us for a night of fun and be a part of helping us to support our community. We look forward to seeing you!
