The kitchen crew at Teen Services Sonoma is busy cooking up its holiday specialty — homemade pies.
One of the most loyal customers is local Realtor Christine Benson, at left, who ordered 66 of the pies for her 8th annual Pie Appreciation Party, coming up at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club.
Of her tradition, Christine says, “It’s the one time a year, we can count on , where my clients and I gather, and I am honored to give as gifts, these pies, prepared by teens, and making a difference for so many involved. ”

Teen Services Sonoma engages and supports teens and young adults with work-readiness skills and experiences that empower them to succeed.
