Healdsburg, CA – Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma-Marin hosted their annual wine tasting fundraiser under a new name, Healdsburg Crush, this past Sunday, October 20th on the historic Healdsburg Plaza. Net event revenues generated a record $115,000 in direct support to 42 Clubs that serve over 10,000 kids in Sonoma and Marin Counties.
Once only a Pinot Noir event, this year, the wine selection was expanded to include Chardonnay and sparkling wines from an impressive 65 participating California wineries pouring on the plaza.
The 550+ people in attendance voted Papapietro Perry their favorite winery at the event during a People’s Choice contest for the 7th year in a row. In addition to casting their votes, attendees were also able to take home a few bottles (in some instances, cases) of their favorite wines from the silent auction and raffle featuring instant wine cellars and magnums as prizes.
“Like helping youth reach their full potential, an event of this caliber takes many supporters,” said Jennifer Weiss, Chief Executive Officer at Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma-Marin. “Along with our 24 sponsors and 65 participating wineries, we are so grateful for everyone who traveled near and far to make Healdsburg Crush a success.”
This event is one of the most significant fundraising events for Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma-Marin. Also a first this year, 100% of the proceeds will benefit their afterschool and summer programs, allowing them the opportunity to provide life changing programs to over 10,000 kids every year in Sonoma and Marin Counties.
“The beautiful Healdsburg Plaza, amazing wines, and incredibly generous people made for a day of fun and tremendous support for the kids in our community,” said Circe Sher, Partner in Hotel Healdsburg. “This event was the perfect setting to showcase both our wonderful local wineries and the giving spirit of our community.”
