empowering at-risk youth

through community partnerships.
We accomplish this mission by being the catalyst in building synergies between organizations to go beyond what they would do alone.
Through events, the wine community, and other collaborative partners we hope to strengthen charities by creating a greater awareness of their needs and funding programs that positively impact the lives of California’s most vulnerable children.

The philanthropic spirit of the wine community and a group of friends decided not to give up hope.

Our Uncork for Hope Signature Event is May 5, 2019! Join us at the Center Club Orange County in Costa Mesa for a memorable afternoon.
