$6,000 Raised During Live Silent Auction for #3BraveWomenFund

Following the recent tragedy that took place at our charity partner, The Pathway Home, we wanted to do more to help the organization as well as the families of the three women who lost their lives that day through the #3BraveWomenFund.

While there was only a few days between the incident and our event, we scrambled to put together a silent auction at the Taste of Yountville event. We put a call out for donations to our many amazing partners and wineries, media companies and other local businesses jumped to action to contribute.

We received offers of almost 30 bottles of wine, artwork, show tickets, and gift certificates for meals and tastings. The next day, thanks to the efforts of Chris Heuer and Susan Rousseau, who put the auction together in record time, as well as Nanette Humer, who helped to oversee the live auction as well as many other volunteers, we placed 16 items out for bid during our event. With the incredible support of the Taste of Yountville attendees, we were able to raise almost $5,000.00!

In addition to the silent auction funds, we introduced everyone to the Dip Jar, which enabled us to collect nearly $1,000.00 in credit card donations during the event.

Above: ABC 7 News did a short piece on our efforts.

Below: You can click on the image below to see a few photos taken during the live auction.

We wish to send a heartfelt thank you to the following organizations who donated their goods and services to help support the #3BraveWomenFund. We are lucky to work within a true community where so many wonderful people jump to action in times of need. 

In fact, there was so much support from the community that we could not auction it all during our live event. We have nine (9) more items that will now be sold in online auctions!

Unfortunately, this will not include the rest of the incredible wine we had available as we are prohibited from selling these items on eBay, and we were unsuccessful in finding another economical auction platform that could support our efforts. Because of this, we will be returning the wine bottle donations back to the following wineries who also offered their support:

We are grateful for their offers to help, and we are deeply sorry we were not able to get their donations into the live auctions to support the families even further.

I would like to thank our local community for springing into action to help us raise money for the #3BraveWomenFund. It is now up to all of us to show our support of all of these organizations — buy their wine, eat at their restaurants, and use their goods and services.

And remember, we are not done yet.

Yountville Live Supports #3BraveWomenFund

Yountville Live Supports #3BraveWomenFund

[UPDATE: THUR, MARCH 15, 2018: While the status of The Pathway Home’s future is still being determined, our efforts to raise funds this weekend with our silent auction, and donation ‘dipjar’ are all going to the #3BraveWomenFund to support the families of the victims. We remain committed to their mission of serving the needs of post 9/11 Veterans and will determine how we will best be supporting whatever course they choose for their future.]

In the wake of Friday’s tragic shooting at The Pathway Home, Yountville Live will join our charity partner and the Town of Yountville to honor the three lives that were lost. We are asking attendees and supporters of our event to help donate to the families of Ms. Loeber and Drs. Gonzales and Golick through the 3 Brave Women Fund that has been created (#3bravewomenfund).

You can send donations directly to c/o Mentis, 709 Franklin Street, Napa CA 94559 or make a donation onsite at this weekend’s events. Those who wish to provide support to The Pathway Home directly are encouraged to donate at www.thepathwayhome.org, where messages of condolence and support can also be posted.

[UPDATE: You can now send in donations online.]

Yountville Live will also donate a portion of the proceeds from Saturday and Sunday’s “Taste of Yountville” ticket sales to both the 3 Brave Women Fund and The Pathway Home, as well as curating auction items that people will be able to bid on to benefit both (more details on this shortly).

In a truly devastating moment like this we need to come together and show support for not only a community that has experienced a huge loss, but to an organization that has done so much to guide and assist veterans, The Pathway Home. Join us Saturday, March 17th and Sunday, March 18th for the 25th Annual Taste of Yountville and help us raise awareness and funds for the 3 Brave Women Fund!
