The Vintage, “Farewell to the Swallows” Event at the San Juan Capistrano Mission Saturday night had a large turn out of guest to a $75 buffet of food and drink from 25 restaurants and wineries.

The event was put together for the historical departure of the doves on Oct. 23 from the Mission San Juan after spending the summers here in the hot California sun.

Saddleback students are partaking in the event by being servers and hostesses at the event tonight.

Saddleback students like Jordan Riche, employee of What a Dish, was introducing guests to the gourmet sandwiches and sweets they create.

Also at the Mahe booth, you will find Saddleback student Katie Jiron, welcoming guest to cheers with some Saki.

The night’s music was by International Broadcasting Award winner from Hollywood Radio and Television Society, Greg Adams.  A successful arranger, composer, conductor, and performer, he has a career that spans nearly four decades.

The night concluded at 10:00 p.m. with an auction with a number of great collectors items. This year’s proceeds will benefit the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce and Mission San Juan Capistrano.
