THE PARTY The inaugural Uncork for a Cause charity program, the brainchild of Washington Nationals pitcher, Gio Gonzales, kicked off this past weekend at Teddy & The Bully Bar!
THE PEOPLE Guests enjoyed a night of fundraising alongside delicious food from award-winning Executive Chef, Demetrio Zavala, and sipped incredible wine with the release of Gonzalez’ very own 2014 Sonoma Reserve Red Wine exclusive to the night’s event.
BEST IN SHOW A live auction featured used Nationals gear and memorabilia, local and national sports items, wine lots from elite California producers, and travel opportunities to wine country. Proceeds raised by the enthused crowd were donated to The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, an organization focused on improving the lives of DC based children and teens through initiatives focused on academics, nutrition, the arts, and sports; as well as Hialeah Baseball, which provides financial support to the Hialeah High School baseball team, Gonzales’ alma mater. It was a fun-filled night, only made better by the charitable support provided by the attendees!
