First and foremost, thank you for the outpouring of love and concern we've received from many of you. Although this has been a nightmare of an experience, we have also been witness to beautiful acts of bravery, generosity and the best part of the human spirit in our community. We are stronger together. So, here we are, arms outstretched, looking for a helping hand to raise some money to help those in dire need (and a few hugs, too).
Here are the most important details right up front about the Reeve Wines Fire Relief Fundraiser:
+ By donating money you have a chance to win a Healdsburg vacation package valued at over $15,000 that includes unique experiences you can’t buy.
+ 100%—every penny—of all the money raised will go to help fire victims, with a focus on giving to the most vulnerable and those who were uninsured.
+ We have a series of donors who will match DOLLAR for DOLLAR all the money we raise here. That means this DOUBLES the impact of your gift.
D O N A T I O N S: All funds raised will be divided to three different organizations—the Redwood Credit Union Fund, Redwood Empire Food Bank, and to a local to Healdsburg organization called Corazon. We have supported Corazon since the beginning; we know the directors of the organization very well and are 110% confident in their ability to get funds to the most vulnerable. Links highlighted on their names can tell you more.

No limit on tickets purchased. We have a lofty goal of raising $20,000, but we fully believe in our friends, family, supporters and community. Reeve Wines remains among the luckiest. We're ever grateful that our people and our place are safe and unscathed. But we must do something for the thousands around us who are not so lucky.
If you've ever felt moved by the magic of Sonoma County, please help us in this effort. We urge you to share this via email and across all social media channels so we can raise as much money as possible. We see the devastation first hand and very dollar counts.
With heavy but HOPEFUL hearts,
Noah, Kelly, Sam, and Tara
