Food & Wine Society - Overview

Project Youth OCBF’s Food & Wfoodwineine Society was created by Ygal and Sheila Sonenshine in 1996. This membership group was established to provide financial support to Project Youth by bringing together people who enjoy great wine paired with delicious food and the opportunity to support our community. Wine education is provided by our Cellar Master Ygal Sonenshine, who never fails to entertain while educating.

Membership in the Society is limited to members of the bench and bar and their spouses. An annual dinner fee is due in December, along with a one-time non-refundable cellar fee. The Society hosts two dinners a year.
