We are thankful to be able to support charities around the world with our time, wine donations and financial contributions. To date, we have raised over $6.7 million. These are some of the charities we lovingly support:
The Naples Children & Education Foundation supports programs that improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at risk children in Collier County. The Naples Winter Wine Festival, where Jeff and Valerie are Founding Trustees, has raised over $123 million for this Foundation.
The V Foundation was started by Jim Valvano to assist researchers who will eventually find cures for cancer. Jim, a former NC State basketball coach and award-winning broadcaster, wanted to see his battle with cancer through to victory. He recruited friends and family to lead The V Foundation in his quest to eradicate the disease that ultimately claimed his life.
Since 1981, Auction Napa Valley has given nearly $137 million to healthcare, youth development and affordable housing non-profits in Napa County - what's raised in Napa, stays in Napa. "Auction Napa Valley makes a difference to the people in our community."
Charity: Water is a non-profit bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
Napa Valley Vine Trail is a multi-use hiking and biking trail running the entire length of Napa Valley. When completed it will provide a safe and beautiful recreation area for both residents and visitors alike.
