The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar raised $105,000 at its 8th Annual “Sunday in the Vineyard” fundraiser to benefit the Marconi Foundation for Kids and The Plasticos Foundation. More than 300 guests experienced an afternoon wine tasting with more than 80 wines, a runway show hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue, a sampling of passed hors d’oeuvres by The Winery’s Executive Chef and Partner, Yvon Goetz, and live and silent auctions.
The Marconi Foundation for Kids was started by Marconi Automotive Museum Founder Dick Marconi in 1994. Marconi's philosophy, passed down from his father is simple yet defining: Learn, Earn and Return. LEARN through a higher education, EARN through hard work and perseverance, RETURN to others in need.
The Marconi Foundation for Kids is committed to giving a large percentage of the net proceeds, generated from Special Events and Individual and Group Tours to local children's charities. Through the many corporate and individual client partnerships, the Marconi Foundation for Kids will continue to strive toward the goal of raising $1,000,000-a-year for at-risk youth. The Marconi Foundation for Kids is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization. For more information, visit http://www.MarconiMuseum.org/.
