It is that time of year once again and we are thrilled to host our 2014 Back to the Vine Event benefiting children of low wage families within our community.
Why Joining Our Efforts is Critical to Napa’s Prosperity?
Our target population, according to a study conducted by Bay Area Economics, hired by Napa county, released a report last year that estimates more than 7,000 families are employed during vineyards’ peak growing season and are living in low-to-very low income households and almost half do not qualify for government aid. And so, as we enjoy the beautiful festivities with family, friends, food and gifts, we want to share some of that joy with those that make our Napa a vibrant and prosperous community.
Last year we served over 150 children.This year, we invite you to be a part of this amazing event; with your support and the generosity of Central Valley Project we hope to be able to reach out to about 250 little ones.
Back To The Vine this year will be at the Boys & Girls Club of Napa on November 30th starting at 12noon.
Napa Private Tours in collaboration with Central Valley Project, Executive Chef Gerry Castro & Picnics & Pairings by Alma would like to thank you in advance for your support. Here are 3 ways you can engage and make a difference:
1. Nominate Families
We want to be intentional in how we distribute gifts. To this end, we will only give presents to nominated families identified by our friends & business partners. If there is a family within your operation that you think will be blessed by making their holidays even more special please include them. We will be honored to make their holiday season a magical and memorable one. Please send us the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
The first and last name of the parent or guardian of the nominated family.
A contact phone number for the parent for us to invite them.
If available the names, age, size and gender of the children nominated (don’t worry if you don’t have this information, we can certainly reach out to the parent to secure it prior to the event.
Any special circumstances you might want to mention such as disabilities or special struggles they are currently trying to overcome.
Send no later than November 15, 2014, 5:00pm.
