Faithful Stewards, started by El Dorado Hills couple Alisha and Brandon Mecier in 2006, will once again host its Wine & Desert fundraiser.

This year’s event will be held from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1, at Lakehills Church, 7000 Rossmore Lane in El Dorado Hills. Enjoy wine tasting, desserts, live music, El Dorado Dance Academy performances and more while purusing more than 80 auction items.

one-hundred percent of the money raised goes to Faithful Stewards’ global outreach programs benefiting the community of Nueva Vida, Nicaragua. Over the years, Faithful Stewards has introduced a soccer camp program to the refugee community and also helped create micro-enterprises — a bakery, family farms, jewelry shop, a cafe — and built a classroom to teach English as well as supporting a feeding center and more.

Tickets are $25 each. For more information visit faithfulstewards.net/23.
