A local favorite since 2004, New Vista's Wine Walks make for the perfect Saturday night out with friends, family, and even your dog.

Guests will have the opportunity to socialize, sip, stroll, and stop at over 15 tasting stations.

There will also be live music, entertainment, great food, and shopping options available as well.

Even better -- 100-percent of the proceeds benefit New Vista, whose mission is to serve and support the intellectually challenged of all ages with equal opportunities and support.

This weekend's event will be held from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23 at Downtown Summerlin.

Tickets cost $30, or $35 for day-of.
