I have had the great fortune to be involved in this world class charity where 100% of all net proceeds from the event go to finding cures for cancer. Since 1999, the Wine Celebration has raised over $115M for research.
The Wine Celebration, the V Foundation’s signature fundraising event, brings attendees from all over the country to Napa Valley for a gala weekend of events and activities with a serious underlying purpose—to benefit the V Foundation’s efforts to support significant cancer research at major institutions and research centers nationwide.
In its 26 years, the V Foundation has awarded more than $225 million in cancer research grants nationwide. Twenty-six years ago, the diagnosis and prognosis related to cancer were not as optimistic as today. Because of research, there are earlier diagnoses, a better understanding of what causes some cancers, more positive prognoses of some cancers, and therapies designed to kill cancer while preserving the patient’s overall health. The V Foundation distributes research grants for all types of cancer to the most promising scientists nationwide through a competitive process vetted by a Scientific Advisory Committee. The 22nd annual V Foundation Wine Celebration will be held on August 6-9, 2020.
I’m proud to join @TheVFoundation in the fight against cancer. I had the most incredible connection to Jimmy V when recording this voice over. Felt his presence & to some extent like he was around somehow. Love the foundation and everything it stands for. https://t.co/iGpBqlpOID pic.twitter.com/MKwgYib4Ns
