Wood River YMCA

The Wood River YMCA is a shining community asset, delivering extraordinary daily impact through its programs, collaborations and leadership in Sun Valley, Idaho. Once a year, we gather our best friends for an evening of gratitude and appreciation, and to raise a little money. When the crowd saw the Rivera Vineyards Magnanimous Cabernet Sauvignon on the menu at this year’s event, the stature of the event soared! It was a very special evening, and thanks in part to the generosity of Steve and Marilyn Rivera, we raised well over half a million dollars which directly funds our mission throughout the community.

Magnanimous is an apt description for the Riveras. Thank you.

United Friends of the Children

“Please accept our heartfelt thanks for donating Rivera Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon to the United Friends of the Children's CULTIVATE LA silent auction. Your participation in this very special inaugural event was essential to its success.

In supporting CULTIVATE LA, you are helping to sustain UFC's housing and education programs for foster youth – making it possible for them to find a first apartment, get a job, graduate from high school, and go to college. Thanks to your generosity, the foster youth we serve will have a safety net and support system in place to help guide them on the journey to adulthood.”

Warm Regards,

Polly Williams

“The Rivera Vineyards wine and dinner package was one of the most successful packages during our live auction at the 2006 V Wine Celebration in Napa this August.
