Flanagan Wines is grateful to be part of the great Sonoma County community. We support charities across California and the Country, but our focus is on local Sonoma County charities. We discovered our primary charity through our daughter, Riley.
In 2012, Riley was in eighth grade at Sonoma Country Day School and for her community service project she wanted to find a child focused charity. Riley chose the Community Child Care Council also known as the Sonoma 4Cs. It operates twelve pre-schools in Sonoma County for children from low income families. When Riley called the 4Cs to ask if she could raise some money for them, they had pretty modest expectations. Riley decided to do a wine dinner and with the help of our friends at Baci Restaurant in Healdsburg she raised over $15,000 net for 4Cs. Needless to say the folks at the 4Cs were pretty excited!
Since then our relationship with 4Cs has continued to grow. Riley is now an honorary Board member and attends all of the Board meetings. We donate all the proceeds from ticket sales at our annual Harvest Party to the 4Cs and we are working to connect them with other support in the community. To learn more about the 4Cs please visit http://www.sonoma4cs.org.
