“Share Our Wine”…And your Time…And Your Generosity
Here’s what looks like a very good one (plus, organized in large part by wine bloggers)
The November 17th Wine & Auction event in Orange County benefits the Orangewood Children’s Foundation which is the only Orange County, California emergency
shelter for neglected and sexually, physically or
emotionally abused children.
Our friends at Grape Radio, Jay Selman and Brian Clark have heavily involved in this event, which looks to be filled not only with some serious wine-related auction lots but is only $100 to attend.
Among the more interesting Auction lots…
Lunch and private tour for four at the WS Napa Mansion personally hosted by Wine Spectator Senior Editor James Laube
Sonoma weekend for six at vineyard house with winery lunch and private tour/tasting
1995 Dominus Estate
2004 Alban Vineyards – Reva – 1.5 Liter
2004 DRC LaTache (two bottles
2005 Williams Selyem – Russian River – 3 Liter
No one is going to fill out there cellar at an event like this. However, if you are in the Orange County area you will make a contribution that matters and be hanging with the sharpest wine folks in the area.
It’s true that at FERMENTATION I simply don’t make note of these kinds of events enough. And I should. In fact, I’m going to. If readers have no interest in them they can scroll right on past to some other juicy stuff. But by simply making note of and posting about these kinds of events two things happen: 1) Possibly some good causes get helped out and 2) We are reminded of all the amazing amount of charitable work that happens inside the wine industry.
Jay and Brian: Thanks for doing this!
This is a GREAT cause and my company will be working with Wine Gives and various wineries to raise funds for their causes during October and November. If you want to be a part of this event, please contact the organizers or Wine Gives on Facebook.
