Online Wine Auction to Benefit Napa County Nonprofits

And who said wine couldn't help nonprofits?

An online auction, known as Napa Valley 360, was recently launched to sell Napa Valley Wine and experiences to bidders who are willing to shell out some cash.  And where is all that cash going to go?  Well, it is going to benefit four nonprofits in Napa County: the St. Helena Family Center, the Calistoga Family Center, Family Service of Napa Valley, and Cope Family Center.  All of these organizations have provided services for the needy, yet the demand for their services have soared by nearly 50% during the past year.  Because of this, these nonprofit are in desperate need for funds so that they can continue to run; hence the need for Napa Valley 360.

Obviously, the main attraction of this auction will be the fine wines available, including a mixed case of St. Helena Appelation wines, Cabernets, and a special Chardonnay produced by a fifth generation Napa Valley family.  However, there are some other unique items available in the auction, such as a Chefs Table dinner for four at La Toque, a flight for two above Napa Valley, a boat ride, and much more.  Interested in this auction?  Read more about it at The Napa Valley Register or visit Napa Valley 360.
