Silicon Valley Wine Auction 2018

May 20 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- $75 - $145

FUNDING THE FUTURE AND TRANSFORMING EDUCATION WITH INNOVATION.

Join us for a weekend of celebration, wine and giving!

On Saturday, May 19, 2018 we roll out the barrels for an evening of celebration, wine and giving at Eden Estates in Saratoga. On Sunday, May 20 join 45 Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers at the Taste of the Mountains Grand Tasting extravaganza at Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga.

Launched in 2014 by the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Education Foundation and the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association, the Silicon Valley Wine Auction showcases the diversity of the valley – from a long and storied history in growing local wine to a social and business ethos that champions world-class education. Now in its fourth successful year, the Silicon Valley Wine Auction has raised over $2.5 M to support innovative programs, initiatives, and activities benefiting children in our community.

This year’s beneficiaries include ALearn Silicon Valley Education Foundation’s (ASVEF) Elevate Math program, the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute, the Oxford Day Academy, and the Merit Program of the Krause Center for Innovation.
