Pleasanton, CA The ValleyCare Charitable Foundation is hosting a Wine Release Event on Saturday, October 11, 2014, 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at the Rubino Estates Winery, 1188 Vineyard Avenue in Pleasanton.

Rubino Estates Winery has produced a 2012 Zinfandel named “Philanthropy” for ValleyCare Charitable Foundation. “This is the first ever Wine Release Event for ValleyCare,” says Bob Shapiro, co-chair of the Charitable Foundation. “We are pleased that Rubino Winery offered to work with us to produce the wine. A portion of the proceeds from the sales will go to the ValleyCare Charitable Foundation and our capital campaign to raise $1 million towards patient monitoring equipment for the Cardiac Catheterization Lab.”

Tickets are $20 per person and include light appetizers and two glasses of wine. For every bottle of wine purchased, participants will be entered into a chance drawing. Raffle prize donors include Celebrity Cruise Line. Proceeds benefit ValleyCare Charitable Foundation.

“As a not for profit health system, ValleyCare relies on the generosity of our +community members to help meet the health care needs of the Tri-Valley,” adds Shapiro. “Working together we can continue to deliver compassionate, state-of-the-art health care right here in our community.”
