Two More Raffles for Fire Relief
I've been working with our management and ownership teams early this morning to get two more exciting charity raffles going in association with the ongoing beer raffles started yesterday. Here are the details we've added since yesterday in terms of donations:
100% of the proceeds will go to organizations directly helping the affected areas, split evenly between the Redwood Empire Food Bank, Napa Valley Community Foundation, and the Redwood Credit Union Fund.
Raffle tickets are $10 each and there's no limit to how many you can buy. The raffles will run until Tuesday 10/17 and we'll draw the winners on Wednesday morning. Are you ready for these two whoppers?
1980 Karuizawa 35 Year Old "Samurai" Single Cask #8317 Japanese Single Malt Whisky Raffle - This raffle features a very rare bottle of Japanese whisky from the now extinct distillery of Karuizawa. Previously priced at $10,000 on our website and one of 89 bottles from an ancient single barrel, the whisky was distilled in 1980 and aged for 35 years before it was bottled in 2015.
1974 Joseph Phelps "Insignia"/2014 Dominus 3L Raffle - This raffle features two California legends, thus there will be two individual winners. The 1974 Joseph Phelps "Insignia." was previously priced at $1750 on our website, the wine was retasted by Robert Parker a few years back and awarded a 99/100 score, who wrote: "nearly perfect nearly 40 years after it was made," and a giant 3L bottle of 2014 Dominus with a 97 score from Parker valued at $1100.
We've already raised thousands of dollars from the two beer raffles alone. I'm thinking we can raise tens of thousands of dollars before this thing is done. What do think?
