Thank you to everyone who supported Uncorked! The 5th Annual Taste for a Cause on September 15, 2018. The event raised almost $50,000 for veterans and youth programs in the region. This year’s fundraising was focused around programs that help veterans living with PTS in attempts to curb the veteran suicide rate. We were pleased to include RRUFF Healing Heroes in our 2018 initiatives. RRUFF Healing Heroes is a local organization that obtains service dogs and trains them for their work with veterans.
We were excited to have Auburn Road as dinner-time entertainment. Their patriotism shined brightly in their performance. The silent and live auctions were both highly successful as we had a wide variety of items to choose from. Some of the highlights were a Spring Break trip to Cabo San Lucas, a California Capital Air Show experience and a Sushiology class offered by Mikuni.
Thank you to our Diamond Sponsor SwimChem; Platinum Sponsors Mikuni Sushi and HaneyBiz; Gold Sponsors CSUS, David Sobon Auctions, DSA Technologies, CliftonLarsonAllen, GNT Solutions, Forging Leaders, Placer Concrete Construction, HaneyBiz Growth Accounting and Table Sponsor RRUFF Healing Heroes.
