Pamala Meador, President of the Morgan Hill Community Foundation, says the South Valley Wine Auction this year will benefit many charitable organizations in the community for the first time in its 20-year history. The Foundation is partnering with the Wineries of Santa Clara Valley, great local restaurants and 15 other charities to bring new energy to this annual evening of fun, food, frivolity and philanthropy. The buzz is in the air, with half the VIP tickets for the May 11 event already sold.
“We are thrilled to be able to host an event that really represents the philanthropic spirit of South County in a very demonstrative way,” says Meador. “We will be pairing the Charities and the Wineries together in a way that highlights the Charity. We want this event to bring donors into direct contact with the people that their money serves so that we can create a more lasting and meaningful connection. As we raise our wine glasses, we are also raising our awareness of causes in our community and giving a clearer pathway to contribute.”
Working with a professional auctioneer and event planner instrumental in growing the Sonoma Valley Wine Auction to a multi-million dollar fundraising affair, Meador eventually hopes to make the SVWA one of the premier wine auctions in the state.
