Participate in a statewide fire relief effort
Our hearts ache in the wake of the devastating fires in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino counties.
But together we can help.
California’s regional wine associations have united in the #CAWineStrong statewide fundraising project from now through the end of October. Whether winery, restaurant, other business owners or individuals, there is a way for you to pitch in and help. Here’s how:
STEP 1: Register to be part of #CAWineStrong. Click link in comment (i.e. to donate a portion of bottle sales, tasting fees, other proceeds).
STEP 2: You will receive participation instructions and an easy-to-use tool kit.
STEP 3: Share on social media that you’re participating to encourage others by including the #CAWineStrong hashtag.
Donate directly to one of the recommended relief funds, below, or donate through the CAWINESTRONG.com donation page.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Funds raised will be split among the individual relief funds.
• Napa Valley Communication Foundation Disaster Relief Fund
• Community Foundation of Sonoma County’s Resilience Fund
• Community Foundation of Mendocino County Disaster Fund of Mendocino County
All donations will be made to 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If the fire continues to grow in Lake County, donations will be made to a Lake County Community fund.
