Temecula Valley Wishes for Children

Wishes for Children Foundation is an organization that collaborates with all local charities. Our only commitment is to raise money that will help children right here in Temecula Valley. To accomplish this goal, we seek many avenues, ventures, and projects and the involvement of the community and its businesses.

Bottle Requests

Are you involved in a charity that needs wine for a silent auction? Is the charity in any way (even a tiny little bit, stretch if you need to) related to the wine industry? If so, please post a comment here with information about the charity, the date, and a link if there is one, as well as a contact e-mail. Thank you.

Welcome to Drink Charitably

The impetus behind this was the timing of two different wine-blog-related fundraisers. The first was this past weekend, when Michelle Lentz of My Wine Education used her website to promote a fundraiser in honor of her dear departed sister. Wine Bloggers and Wine Twitters contributed a room full of wine for silent auctions, a very common way of raising money at events of that sort.

The next is an upcoming fundraiser, the Sisson Family Fund Raiser to help support Ben Sisson's family after his untimely loss. Ben was vineyard manager for McCall Vineyards in Cutchogue, and Bedell Cellars will be hosting a fundraiser and silent auction for him on May 8.

That got me to thinking- how many events like this are held each year, and is there a way to coordinate them? Can we, as wine bloggers, wine twitters, wine makers, growers, collectors, drinkers, be a little more organized in how we help out? Ergo, Drink Charitably.

The first event will be the Sisson Family Fundraiser, and I will update this soon with an address to send bottles.
