Persimmon Place Wine Stroll 2016

Persimmon Place is a modern ground-up development in Dublin, California. The 153,380 sq. ft. center offers an upscale, convenient and smart shopping destination that showcases a unique collection of the Bay Area’s best anchor stores, retail shops and eateries.

This past October, the center hosted its second annual Wine Stroll, where one hundred percent of ticket entries benefited the Alameda County Community Food Bank.
