While anticipation was growing for the 10th Annual Chino Hills Wine Walk Event on October 10, 2020, concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the health and safety of more than 1,500 volunteers and participants led the Chino Hills Community Foundation Board to the tough decision to postpone this year’s event.
“This decision was not made lightly by the Board of Directors and the Wine Walk Committee, but the priority for the safety and well-being of our attendees and volunteers is paramount,” said Peter Rogers, Chairman, Chino Hills Community Foundation. “Since March, and even up to a few weeks ago, we remained optimistic that we could carry on with adjustments and added precautions. I can honestly say, after much discussion with health and government officials and internal discussions, we are confident that this is the right action to take.”
Considered an iconic event in the Inland Empire, the Chino Hills Wine Walk at the Shoppes at Chino Hills is the region’s premier wine and food event bringing thousands of spectators to Chino Hills since 2011. Annually, the event generates over $80,000 in fundraising efforts to help promote and support cultural, educational, and recreational needs in the City of Chino Hills.
“Our goal is to always produce a top quality event and with so many mandated health restrictions, we choose not to sacrifice the community feel of the Wine Walk in any way. Our event is so successful due to the hard work and dedication of our staff, volunteers, and participants.” Rogers goes on to say, “In good conscience, we could not ask them nor our sponsors and vendors to compromise their health. The Chino Hills Wine Walk has a long history and reputation and by postponing our 10th annual event until 2021, we promise to make next year’s event the largest and best ever! The Foundation Board thanks our Wine Walk community for their past support and current understanding and we look forward to welcoming all of our wine lovers back in October 2021.”
