Passport to Dry Creek ValleyHEALDSBURG, Calif. (April 12, 2016)—Five dollars can buy wine lovers a shot at a collection of premium magnum wines to stock their cellar and the joy of supporting kids. The Winegrowers of Dry Creek Valley (WDCV) have announced a new raffle benefitting preschool education in the local community; the raffle is happening in conjunction with the 27th Annual Passport to Dry Creek Valley on April 23-24. Prizes include seven packages with an approximate value of $300 each, featuring rare Dry Creek Valley wines and tasting experiences.

“Our donated dollars support two programs: training preschool teachers in the Healdsburg Unified School District, and supporting Pasitos’ work helping children of monolingual Spanish-speaking parents to be successful in school. Last year, we raised more than $20,000 for these programs.” says Ann Petersen, executive director of the Winegrowers of Dry Creek Valley.

“Passport to Dry Creek Valley celebrates the agricultural heritage of the region; we hope it can also become a tool for improving the community that supports our industry,” says Petersen.
