Triangle Wine Experience and Vinventions announced the donation of $100,000 to the community foundations of Napa Valley and Sonoma County in support of California wildfire relief.
After watching the devastating fall 2017 fires overtake the vineyards and homes of close friends, Vinventions, a provider of bottle closures for the wine industry, and Triangle Wine Experience, a fundraiser for Frankie Lemmon School & Development Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, made a commitment to help, said a news release.
On June 15, the two companies hosted the Raleigh, North Carolina-based ‘Cue for Cali fundraiser, drawing a crowd of more than 300 people and raising just over $100,000.
The donations were presented this week to the Napa Valley Community Foundation and the Community Foundation of Sonoma County by representatives of Vinventions and Triangle Wine Experience.
"We wanted to send a very clear message to all of Napa, Sonoma and the other areas affected, that we are with them," said Malcolm Thompson, Vinventions’ chief innovation officer and president, Americas.
