Dear Friends and Supporters,
This past October, we all came together to help our neighbors in northern California during their time of crisis from tragic wildfires. Together we raised over $31,000 for residents in Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties. Little did we know that a few months later our own community would face the very same devastation and threat from a late season wildfire.
The Thomas fire is the largest wildfire in modern California history and displaced thousands from their homes. Within two weeks of returning to their homes, evacuation orders drove residents of Montecito from their homes once again ahead of catastrophic mud flows. Twenty-one lives were lost as the debris flow descended from the burn area in the middle of the night.
The Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation is asking our community to come together again to raise funds for the severe needs of those affected by the Thomas fire and aftermath debris flow. Please donate anything you can as the need is great. Your donations will go to those in need through relief organizations in our community.
Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization tax ID 91-2132001
