Even after all this time I’m still amazed at the level of cooperation and community in this industry. Concerned about the needs of underserved youth in our area, Annie and Scott Shull of Raptor Ridge winery came up with the idea of holding what they are calling FUNraisers (more below) and invited their friends at BrickHouse, Division, Adelsheim, and Winderlea to do the same. The result is a series of small events at each of our wineries over the next few months intending to raise funds for local organizations or local chapters of organizations serving youth.
Annie and Scott, do a lot of work in this industry to raise awareness and funds and they could have easily have let this idea pass instead of organizing meetings and calls to bring this idea to fruition. The same could just as easily be said of the other winery leaders. We are honored to be in their company, and hope you will support the effort as well. You’ll see additional details below with more to come in the following weeks and months.
