More Reasons to Attend The Great Wine Festival

The Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival is produced by and will benefit the Legal Aid Society of Orange County and Community Legal Services in Southeast Los Angeles County, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides free legal services to those in our community who would otherwise be denied access to justice. On a personal note, I found myself using the Legal Aide Society several years ago several years ago when I was the victim of a financial crime. I discovered it was the lifeline I needed to navigate the court system. This is a great service that helps folks from all walks of life. 

The Great Wine Festival 2014 will be a blast
