information to help them live enriched, productive and independent lives.

Last but certainly not the least; we are selling raffle tickets for $10

tour, tasting, $20 gift certificate towards wine purchase and gourmet lunch
at the Agua Dulce Winery in Agua Dulce California 91390. The drawing will be
held on September 9th at our BBQ party. You don't have to be present to
win... Funds raised will go towards helping our chapter to continue to reach
out to and help our community by providing educational seminars and
organizing fun and diverse activities that inspire and help to build
confidence among our members and other blind people who are always welcome
to participate. Even if wine tasting isn't your thing, this package would
make an excellent gift to someone for any occasion. If you'd like to support
our efforts by purchasing tickets, please contact any of the SFV chapter
members and we will all be happy to get you all set up. 

Thank you!
