Our wine tasting event is held every year in the fall. Bert George, owner of Joseph George, is very generous in allowing us to hold the event at his store in San Jose. The event is usually highlighted by a guest speaker who helps us spread DJ’s motto, “Go the Distance and Never Give Up.” Past speakers have been, Dr. Michael Link (DJ’s oncologist at LPCH for 19 years, Coach Dick Davey, past Santa Clara University Basketball Coach, Dave Righetti #19 San Francisco Giants Pitching Coach, Bill O’Brien, DJ’s Business Professor at SCU.
Raffle tickets will be available to purchase at the event. Prizes include a Bocce Team giveaway, concert tickets, and more! All money raised goes to support the programs we finance at LPCH at Stanford; CHEERS and AYA.
Thank you Bert George for providing us the venue and fabulous wine samplings. We must also thank Martin Ucovich and John Poch for the outstanding food. This event could not be possible without those of you who attended. Each year, the event continues to grow. We are happy to announce, that we raised over $11,000 in 2018.
Our guest speaker, Will Kadash, gave us an inspirational speech on how he is in remission from cancer and his heartwarming talk about attending Cancer Con, which has changed his life.
Congratulations also goes to Will for winning the raffle prize to Hotel VIA and club seats to a SF Giants game in 2019.
