We hope everyone traveling for Thanksgiving has arrived home safely.
Charity events are important all year long and during the holiday seasons more people are thinking of those in need. Below are two charity events coming up on December 13.
TOYS FOR TOTS
On Friday, December 13 in California’s Mendocino County, the McFadden Farm Stand & Tasting Room will offer the 2nd Annual TOYS FOR TOTS Toy Drive & Wine Tasting.
From 4pm to 7pm people can donate a new, unwrapped toy. Those donating a toy will receive a free wine tasting. A $10 donation can also be made. Money received will be used to purchase more toys.
The tasting room will pour pre-release tastes of four wines and McFadden Old Vine Zinfandel as well as the McFadden Sparkling Brut.
The event will end with a raffle drawing of McFadden goodies.
Toys collected at this event will be delivered to children by the Hopland Volunteer Fire Department who will deliver the toys to needy children with Santa and a fire engine truck.
