November 29, 2009 (Alpine) - How would you like to complete your Christmas shopping and help rescued big cats at the same time? On Saturday, December 5th from 1 to 5 p.m., a holiday party will be held at 24402 Martin Way in Alpine featuring food, wine, beer, a silent auction, and holiday shopping with over a dozen local vendors. 


Among the options for gift-shopping are local wineries and breweries, artists and artisans, and companies offering gourmet foods, spa and personal care products, clothing, kitchenware, and more.
