Do I hear $$$ to help our children?

Lindsey Roffey, general manager and sommelier of Rodrigue Molyneaux Winery, along with auctioneer Damon Casatico at the 17th annual Livermore Valley Wine Auction helped raise $225,000 raised for local children's charities.

The beneficiaries of the recent 2011 Wine Auction were Open Heart Kitchen's Weekend Box Lunch Program, which provides needy Tri-Valley kids with nutritious lunches when they are not at school, Children's Skin Disease Foundation's Camp Wonder in Livermore and ValleyCare Foundation's Mobile Health Unit, which provides primary health care and immunizations to uninsured and underserved children in the Tri-Valley area.

The event included a gourmet dinner and bids on unique wine and vacation packages. The highest bid of the evening, $7,200, won a first-class trip to Hawaii on Alaska Airlines with accommodations at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea.
