Temecula Wine and Music Festival Announces Stellar Lineup May 3-4-2008
Festival Will Benefit Military Families in Need

Come and enjoy world class music and a unique wine tasting experience from Temecula's award-winning wineries at the Temecula Wine and Music Festival from May 3-4, 2008 at the Vail Lake Resort in Temecula, California. The festival will benefit "All from The Heart," a Temecula based non-profit charity helping out our military families in need of assistance.

In keeping with the tradition of providing the best in musical entertainment, the lineup includes: The Average White Band, Michael Paulo with special guest appearance by James Ingram, Grammy-Award-Winner Jody Watley, Everette Harp, Marc Antoine, Steve Oliver, Chieli Minucci, Paul Brown, Brian Simpson, Kiki Ebsen, Phillippe Saisse, Antonio Pontarelli, Alan Hewitt and the Perri Sisters.

The beautiful Vail Lake Resort is located just nine miles from Interstate 15 on Highway 79 in Temecula and provides the festival with more space than in previous years. Along with the stellar lineup, the festival has added wine tasting from local wineries and more local food and merchandise vendors to the mix. Live and silent auctions will be held May 3-4 with 100% of the auction proceeds going directly to All from the Heart.

Each year, Apaulo Music Productions hosts the Temecula Wine and Music Festival with a portion of ticket sales to benefit a charity. The festival's producer, Michael Paulo, encourages everyone to come out and support the event. "In the past three years of the event, we raised close to a $100,000 for The Shriner's Hospital for Children. There's no better feeling than that of helping others," said Paulo. "This year, we are proud to be supporting a local non-profit charity in Temecula called All from the Heart. Their mission is to help our military families in need. Recently, All from The Heart raised funds to help an IRAQ war veteran cope with his losing an arm and a leg. By purchasing a retrofitted vehicle for him and donating money to his family, All from the Heart helped him re-adjustment to civilian life. Through music we can heal suffering and despair. Please support our event. I am sure you will have a great time for a great cause," he said.
