VINO FOR VETS
October 21 - 24, 2021
Napa Valley, California
Join Graham and Courtney Rahal for a couples-exclusive wine experience in the beautiful Napa Valley to raise money for Turns For Troops / SoldierStrong. Over the course of the event, we will be visiting various locations such as Napa, Calistoga, Yountville and Oakville and tasting some of the finest wines to be made.
Since we will be visiting the area in October, many of the wineries' harvest will be in full-swing!
Cost of the experience is $10,000 per couple inclusive of tastings at four prestigous wineries, three-night stay at Andaz Napa, transportation between hotel and venues, breakfast, dinner and more!
Net proceeds will benefit Turns For Troops / SoldierStrong. Turns For Troops works alongside SolderStrong which is an organization with a national profile that stands at the forefront of nonprofits dedicated to improving the lives of our nation's heroes through the donation of revolutionary medical technologies to VA Hospitals and other medical centers across the country. SoldierStrong provides rehabilitation devices known as exo-skeleton suits to aid injured and paralyzed veterans in regaining their ability to stand and walk again. To date the organization has donated 24 exo-skeleton suits, with 20 of those devices going to VA Hospitals. Currently, 35,000 veterans have access to the rehabilitation devices. Recently the organization has placed an emphasis on mental health through their StrongMind program, which provides virtual reality hardware and software used in the treatment of post-traumatic stress (PTS) in veterans. 14 VA Hospitals across the country have access to the StrongMind technology.
"We are thrilled to add Vino For Vets to the Graham & Courtney Rahal Foundation's mission to give back to some of those who have sacrificed so much to serve our country honorably. Benefitting Turns For Troops / SoldierStrong, Vino For Vets will offer a twist to our normal fundraising efforts, pairing two of our favorite things - our love for wine and our passion for helping our veterans. We are excited to share some of our favorite wineries in the Napa Valley area and provide a unique, intimate experience while working together to help our veterans get back on their feet. We look forward to welcoming 25 wonderful couples for a great time and to support a deserving cause at our inaugural Vino For Vets!"
