"As a volunteer-driven organization we rely on the generous support of local people and businesses to fuel our programs. Having participating wineries, like Plan B Wine Cellars in Ventura, Strey Cellars in Oxnard, Millesime Cellars in Camarillo, and Sunland Vintage Winery in Thousand Oaks, puts this event on the map, raising awareness and funds that benefit the 90,000 patients in Greater Los Angeles and Ventura County.
