Proceeds from the event go towards scholarships providing local youth, adults and seniors with the funding necessary to participate in the programs offered by LARPD. On average, the LARPD Foundation serves 80 residents per year, but the need for scholarships is growing and the foundation hopes to rise to the challenge of providing assistance to residents in need.

“This event provides a unique opportunity to have a good time and give back to the community,” Banning said. “Scholarships have already been awarded to children for swimming lessons or summer camps and to seniors to attend events that connect them with other seniors. We are setting out with the lofty goal of raising 50 $000 and hope the community will consider coming to Wine Down in the Grove to support this effort.”

Event sponsors and partners include: Wente Vineyards, LARPD, Souza Belasz, Good Morning Maxwell, Livermore Downtown, Inc., David Furst, Shea Homes, Hoge-Fenton, Darcie Kent Estate Winery, Almost Famous Wine Company, Pennyweight Craft Brewing, Big House Winery and John Evan Cellars, Charles R. Vineyards, Wood Family Vineyards, Charming Fig, Peggy’s Pretzels, Bay House Cakery, Bluebirds Chocolate and Wow Wow Hand-Crafted Lemonade.
