The Gretta Foundation's All About Wine Gala
Program dedicated to providing nursing services to impoverished citizens hosts wine-themed fundraiser at Lafayette Veteran's Memorial Building
The Gretta Foundation hosted its second annual All About Wine event in Lafayette, benefiting the foundation’s Private Practice Midwife Program.
Highlights from the evening included a Star Wars-themed auction item which included a framed movie poster autographed by Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Carrie Fisher, Ewan McGregor, Samuel Jackson, George Lucas and more. Also included were two tickets to the premier of Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the grand opening of the Alamo Drafthouse at New Mission in San Francisco. Darth Vader, a Bounty Hunter, and two Imperial Storm Troopers from the 501st Legion were on hand to ‘facilitate’ the auction.
Emcee Pam Cook of KTVU and auctioneer Joe Cunningham provided laughs and excitement for the close to 200 attendees who were also treated to spectacular wine from 20 of Northern California’s most exclusive wineries and fabulous food pairings provided by culinary partner, Rodney Worth, who was assisted by his son, Zachary Worth.
