POSTPONED
[Almost] Annual Wine Tasting Even
t
Dear Northern California Alumni:  

I'm sure you've been following the  tragedy regarding the
wildfires in Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino Counties.  From
all reports, the devastation is extensive.   

After considering the current situation in Sonoma and Napa
counties, the prudent course of action is to postpone the
planned November 4th wine tasting event until the spring.  
Further announcements about our event will be posted on
our website and Facebook page.  

Cancelling our event is simple.  Helping our fellow
Californians recover from this disaster will be significantly
more difficult  To that end, I want to share information
concerning relief efforts for the area.  

Donate to an evacuation center:

Petaluma officials have posted on social media asking for
people to donate supplies, including baby food, pet food,
water, blankets, and toilet paper, to these nearby evacuation
centers:
•        Adobe Christian Church- 2875 Adobe Road
•        Calvary Chapel 155 S McDowell Blvd
•        Petaluma United Methodist church- 410 D Street
•        Petaluma Church of Christ -370 Sonoma Mountain
Parkway
•        Petaluma Veteran’s Memorial Building
•        Casa Grande School –333 Casa Grande Road
•        Cash donations are preferred and accepted at the
evacuation centers. For a full list of locations,
click here.

Donate or sign-up to volunteer with the Red Cross:

People can  donate directly to the Red Cross at any time by
dialing 1-800 RED CROSS. To make a quick, one-time
donation of $10, text REDCROSS to 90999.

GoFundMe and online aid platforms:

GoFundMe has verified
this donation page, created by
winery owner Jake Kloberdanz. The goal is to raise $10,000
for fire relief efforts.

Several organizations are named as beneficiaries on
Kloberdanz's GoFundMe, all of which are associated with fire,
rescue and relief efforts.

Thanks for your support and Hail to Pitt.
