U P D A T E
Our drawing took place on Friday, November 3 and you can watch the video on our Facebook page. With our matching funds we ended up raising more than $220,000 for Wine Country fire relief. Words cannot adequately express the gratitude and love for everyone who puchased tickets, matching donors who stepped up to double the money, wineries, chefs, drivers, luxury properties who donated incredible experiences. This money will be used to help the most vulnerable get back on their feet. Thank you a million times over and congratulations to our winners:
HEALDSBURG WINNER - Allison H.
KAUAI WINNER - Brent S.
LAGUNA BEACH - Barrie T.
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 one of THREE incredible vacation packages:
A Healdsburg vacation package valued at over $15,000 that includes unique experiences you can’t buy.
A $15,000 seven-night stay at a luxury, private resort in Kauai.
A $4500 three-night stay at the stunning Montage Laguna Beach.
+ 100% 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, UnDocufund 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 had a lofty goal of raising $20,000, but thanks to an incredible outpouring from our friends, family, supporters and community, we are at $175,000 (which includes matching funds)! 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
