California Doubles Proceeds at Third Annual Uncork for Hope

Over 250 people raised a ​glass to Boys Town California at “Uncork for Hope” on Sunday, May 3. Boys Town California, in partnership with First Team Estates & Christies International Real Estate, proudly presented the Third Annual Uncork for Hope sponsored by the First Team Real Estate Foundation.

The sold-out event featured some of the most desired wines from California, wonderful hors d'oeuvres, one-of-a-kind auction items, and, most importantly, an opportunity to learn more about the life-changing care Boys Town California provides to the community's most at-risk children and families.

"I’ve been a long-time supporter of Boys Town California and wanted to bring more awareness to the children and families currently suffering in our community," said Adam Miller, chair of Uncork for Hope and board member of Boys Town California. "Not only is Uncork for Hope an excellent opportunity to taste some of California’s finest wines, we are doing it in the spirit of saving children and healing families, a cause that is very close to my heart."

In addition to tasting some of California’s best wines, guests also honored this year’s Champion of Hope award winner, Debbie Lewandowski of First Team Estates. Over the past three years, Debbie has offered support for not only the Uncork for Hope event, but also the children and families of Southern California. Also in attendance was former Boys Town California youth, Christiana Martin. Martin returned to her roots to photograph the event and to offer a firsthand account of the great work Boys Town does for youth in California.

"On behalf of the children and families that we serve, I am grateful to all of our event sponsors, Adam Miller and the rest of the Uncork for Hope Committee for taking the time to plan such a special event to benefit our programs," said Lawren Ramos, Boys Town California Executive Director.

Boys Town California doubled its proceeds from the previous year and raised more than $90,000.
