For generations Wells Fargo has supported community programs and organizations through generous grants and by sponsoring charitable activities. News that they have joined forces with philanthropic PR firm Barcelona Enterprises comes as no surprise, and is right in line with the financial institution's rich history of generous giving.
“Wells Fargo is proud to sponsor the Calabasas Malibu Food & Wine Festival again for another year,” said Reza Razzaghipour, Wells Fargo Pacific Coast Region President. “We have long-standing tradition of supporting this festival not only because it showcases the best the area has to offer, but also because its supports our local communities, businesses and neighbors. May this event continue to be successful and the thousands of participating guests take part responsibly.”
It’s not the first time the Calabasas Malibu Food & Wine Festival has partnered with huge household names for a good cause. This much-anticipated annual event has been sold out 9 years in a row serving savory gourmet fare and sensational spirits sure to satisfy every guest’s palate. This festival is a dream come true for the culinary fanatic, wine enthusiast, beer aficionado, spirits guru, and overall good-hearted philanthropist. Alan Semsar, Barcelona Enterprises CEO and long-time guarantor, has transformed culinary extravaganzas into opportunities of generosity to support local, needy charities.
“To witness the festival evolve in coherence with our contributions to the community of southern California is a proud achievement for our team at Barcelona Enterprises. From the very beginning, we wanted to grasp the passion for the culinary arts and the pure love of giving those less fortunate. To have Wells Fargo partner with us once again for our tenth year, we wouldn’t have it any other way,” Semsar stated.
The 10th Annual Calabasas Malibu Food & Wine Festival’s proceeds will benefit the local Boys & Girls Club of the West Valley - a nonprofit organization that provides safe, healthy, and productive activities for kids after school. The Club has 3,100 members; 150 kids visit the main Canoga Park site daily; and 550 kids engage in programs at five other school sites. In addition, Barcelona Enterprises is teaming up with Robert Irvine from Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible to help build a kitchen for the West Valley Boys & Girls Club. Barcelona Enterprises has long been a proponent of charitable causes, and is known for hosting spectacular food and wine events which benefit worthy causes.
"One can never give too much to those who seek assistance. We’re all about contributing to the development of education and wellness,“ Barcelona CEO Alan Semsar stated recently. "By partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs we are going to help secure a better future for our city and planet."
