Calling all Angels! Train to Headline Wine D’Vine Benefitting Walden Family Services on October 11 at Hyatt Regency in La Jolla

Tickets are on sale for San Francisco-based rock band TRAIN’s exclusive performance at Walden Family Service’s annual Wine D’Vine on October 11, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in La Jolla, California. All proceeds from event benefit Walden’s programs for foster youth and families.

Concertgoers will experience an intimate evening with Train as they perform to a limited number of guests. With hits like the Grammy-award-winning “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me),” “Hey Soul Sister,” “Marry Me,” and “Meet Virginia,” the band is beloved not only for a consistent stream of hits but for their consummate showmanship and audience-thrilling performance.

“We’re thrilled to have Train perform for us,” said Walden CEO Teresa Stivers. “When I think about the song ‘Calling All Angels’ it speaks to what our foster kids are going through, and how they need angels: ‘When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head / When you feel the world shake from the words that are said / I need a sign to let me know you’re here.’”

For 16 years, Wine D’Vine has been Walden’s signature event, raising unrestricted funds to support children, youth and families with foster care, adoption and transitional housing programs and services. The organization places special emphasis on supporting children who are medically fragile, LGBTQ, teens and sibling groups.

“There are over 35,000 children in foster care in Southern California, and we’re dedicated to finding loving, stable homes for all, including the most vulnerable,” continued Stivers. “A ticket to Wine D’Vine is more than a night out with a great concert — you will be a foster child’s angel.”

Past Wine D’Vine headliners include John Fogerty, Peter Frampton and The Moody Blues, all whom performed sold-out concert sets that will be remembered as once-in-a-lifetime experiences by those who attended.

Tickets for Wine D’Vine are available for purchase at for $500 per person for general concert seating or $5,000 for a general concert table of 10. There is also a limited number of VIP concert tickets available for $1,000 per person or $10,000 for a VIP concert table of 10.
