Grassini Gives Back
THE GRASSINI FAMILY WILL MATCH YOUR DONATION OF ANY SIZE AT THE 6th ANNUAL “GRASSINI GIVES BACK” CHARITY WINE EVENT IN SUPPORT OF FOOD FROM THE HEART TO TAKE PLACE AT THE WINERY’S BRAND NEW TASTING ROOM
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the local Santa Barbara community, Grassini Family Vineyards raised nearly sixty-thousand dollars over the last five years for some very deserving local charities at their annual charity event “Grassini Gives Back.” This year the event will be in support of Food From The Heart, a local nonprofit that prepares and delivers nutritious meals to those in the Santa Barbara community who are dealing with major illnesses or surgeries, or those in failing health who cannot take care of themselves. The event will take place on December 10th from noon to seven p.m. at Grassini’s new tasting room (located just down the hall from their previous tasting room).
The Grassini Family will match one hundred percent of the day's tasting fees and raffle ticket proceeds, as well as donations of any size. Patrons can purchase a wine tasting for $20, and Grassini will donate that purchase plus match it fully. Light bites will be provided by Food From The Heart, and there will be a silent auction as well.
The Grassini family feels honored to match donations. Katie Grassini, CEO, says “My family and I understand how truly lucky we are to be able to run our business in this beautiful and very special place, and we take every opportunity to give back to this community. We are very active in charity related activities throughout the entire year, but Grassini Gives Back is the only fundraising event we host, so we always try to make it as special as possible.” General Manager, Paul Azdril added “To see the growth of this event over the past six years has been incredible. I think what has made this event such a success is that people realize their contributions are that much more powerful because of the family’s pledge to match the funds we raise. Your donation of any size will be doubled. That’s huge!”
Food From The Heart feels honored to be chosen as the recipient charity this year. Kelly Onnen, President of the Board of Directors for Food From The Heart said, “Our ability to serve our community is dependent on the generosity of friends, foundations, sponsors and individual donors. We are so thankful to Grassini Family Vineyards for this opportunity to spread the word about the work we do and to raise much needed funds to continue serving our clients.”
The event will be even more special this year because it will take place in Grassini’s new tasting room located in the heart of the historic El Paseo.
