Livermore Valley Wineries, Thank you!

Recently Bryersantis was invited to a fund raiser hosted by one of our number one fans, Laura Byers.  Another long time follower, “Butter” and good friend Jenna also enjoyed the evening with us.   All of the money rasied that night went to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).  LLS is a national voluntary health agency dedicated to curing leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and to improving the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS was established in 1949 as The de Villiers Foundation.  I asked Laura why she felt so pasionate about supporting such a worthy cause.  She said, “Thankfully I don’t have the typical tie to this organization.  A great friend, Vicki Weiland, used to work for LLS as their major fund raising lead.  I liked what she told me about the program and got involved. I am part of their Team in Training program.  In exchange for raising money I get great training from certified coaches while work toward an endurance event.  In April I am going to be doing an Olympic distance triathlon with a great group of teammates.  It is a lot of fun!”

Thank you Laura for your hard work in putting this event together!  Laura was able to interface with a lot of local companies and organizations and recieved a tempting array of donations to bid on.  Laura mentioned that most of the Livermore Valley wineries she visited wanted to participate in this event as well.  They donated generiously without hesitation.  We were very impressed to see so much representation from Livermore as we walked around the room bidding away at all the great items.  See below, I included a list of wineries that generously gave bottles of wine and free wine tastings.   What a great evening!  Thanks once again Laura, and thank you Livermore Valley wineries for being so generous!
