Yes, that’s tonight. Residual Sugar General Manager Aundrea Wainscott’s house burned down last month due to a faulty wall heating unit. She and her boyfriend, Daniel Sharp, and Wainscott’s daughter, Zoe, lost all of their belongings and a place to call home.

The food and wine community has gathered around them, and the magnitude of this event is proof of how much this community cares about Wainscott and Sharp. They have more than 20 years of experience in the Bay Area’s hospitality industry. So if you’ve had great experiences at Va De Vi, SPQR, Residual Sugar, or Chez Panisse, they probably had something to do with it.

Va De Vi, Havana, Sasa, and the Walnut Creek Yacht Club, among others, are donating food. Wineries and distributors including Southern Wine & Spirits are providing wine.

The event is from 6 to 11 p.m. $20 gets you all the food and wine you can want, and a feeling that you’re doing at least one solid thing this holiday season to help a good, hard-working person who is dealing with a tragedy. There will also be an auction. All proceeds benefit Sharp, Wainscott, and her daughter.

Residual Sugar is located at 1684 Locust Street in Walnut Creek. For more information, visit their web site,
