Record-Setting Donation by Wine Club to Kare Bears!

A donation totaling $10,000 was presented to the Kare Bears after the Wine Club’s December Gala. The PebbleCreek Wine Club has donated to Kare Bears from their December Holiday Gala for some years now. At the 2017 annual December Gala the Wine Club hosted a raffle and a silent auction to raise money to assist Kare Bears in meeting their operational goals. Additionally, this year a live auction was held. It presented an opportunity for bids to be made to win a donation from AmaWaterways for a river wine cruise for two to many European locations.

At the silent auction there were donations from Total Wine & More, Tobin James Winery, extensive items from Young’s Market, the Arizona Cardinals, residents Culver and Karen Stone, Gundlach Bundschu Winery, Rombauer Winery, Wagner Family/Caymus Wines, Trinchero Winery, Craggy Range Winery, Paul Hobbs Winery, and Pahlmeyer Winery. All those items were available to win by bids from dinner guests.

Overall the Wine Club, from the three sources of income, raised $10,000 for Kare Bears. The donation presentation was recorded when the Wine Club Board and Auction Coordinator Patti Engelhardt met with Kare Bears Board President Teri Sellers to hand over checks totaling $10,000.

“The generosity of the PebbleCreek Wine Club, not to mention all the effort and work that they put into this event, is overwhelming.  I would like to extend a personal thank-you on behalf of every Kare Bear board member and volunteer to every club member for this wonderful donation,” Teri Sellers told the group as they handed over the checks.

Thank You For Your Support!

The Kare Bears Board of Directors would like to thank the residents of PebbleCreek for your generous support of our 2017 Support Campaign.  As of the day I am composing this article, we have not only reached but have passed our goal of $35,000!

This money will be used very wisely to improve Kare Bear services to the community.  The first project that we will be undertaking is to computerize our operations.  Later this year we will be checking in with residents to obtain feedback on the services we currently provide to best determine how we are doing and to see if there are areas of change.

As PebbleCreek continues to grow and change, Kare Bears wants to be there for you.  Thank you for your continuing support of Kare Bears!


Teri Sellers, President
