SPOTLIGHTS: V Foundation Wine Celebration

Alongside our partners at Miner Family Winery, Feast it Forward was honored to RAISE a glass, awareness and funds with The V Foundation. A charitable organization dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer, it seeks to make a difference by generating broad-based support for cancer research. Furthermore, their mission is to create an urgent awareness among all Americans of the importance of the war against cancer. The Foundation performs these dual roles through advocacy, education, fundraising, and philanthropy.

Napa Valley plays host to the V Foundation for Cancer Research’s annual fundraiser, The V Wine Celebration. Celebrating its 17th year, the auction raised more than $10.6 million over the weekend of August 6-9 2015 for cancer research. With an unprecedented $3 million matching grant from an anonymous donor, the total included more than $7.8 million in “fund-a-need” donations to support pediatric brain cancer research. From premier Napa Valley vintners, to stellar chef and restaurants displaying their culinary arts, the Wine Celebration offers the best of what wine country has to offer…all while giving back and making an impact.
