Our first FUNDRAISING dinner was a dream come true. Our goal is to develop the leaders of the future. We look forward to making a difference.

Proceeds benefited the Dream Big Darling Foundation’s mission to mentor up-and-coming women in the industry. The festivities featured an all-star cast of women-led wineries; a menu inspired by Julia Child; dinner crafted by The Range restaurant; and live music by Hilary & Kate. 



" The menu is a tribute to Julia Child as she has been a huge inspiration to the culinary field. We are excited to celebrate women in the wine & spirits industry."

-Jeff Jackson, Owner & Executive Chef of The Range Restaurant
