Vintage Affair rakes in $50k

Money raised to launch mental-health fund for community.

Hazelmere Golf Course was the site of last week’s Vintage Affair

It was an evening of glitz and glamour – and plenty of giving – at Vintage Affair last week, where 250 people gathered at Hazelmere Golf Course for the annual fundraiser.

More than $50,000 was raised for the Peninsula Community Foundation at Thursday’s event; this year, the foundation has established a new fund to help local organizations raise awareness and provide support for mental-health issues.

The theme of this year’s fundraiser, now in its 23rd year, was ‘denim and diamonds’ and the evening featured food and wine pairings from dozens of vintners, as well as door prizes, a silent auction and entertainment.
