CALEXICO — It was a good night to be a single man in Calexico.
Women, flirting for a good cause, browsed all manner of merchandise, danced to disco favorites in high-heel shoes and enjoyed their libations during the fourth annual Soroptimist Wine Tasting on Wednesday night.
With a ratio of two women for every man, the Calexico Quality Inn became the embodiment of Jan and Dean's "Surf City" without the, well, surf.
Renee Liebowitz of Calexico said there should be more events like this.
"There are so many beautiful women in Calexico. It's good to get everyone together," said Liebowitz.
Virginia Montejano, president of the local Soroptimist chapter, said all 500 tickets for the event were sold.
She said half of the $7,800 raised will go toward scholarships for local students and half will go for community contingencies.
