AWA

The Amador Winemakers Association (AWA), a group of enthusiastic and generous home winemakers, recently held a membership fundraiser at their annual holiday party at Teresa’s Place in Jackson. In addition to enjoying an excellent meal, members raised $4,275 for the Raley’s Food for Families program that benefits the Amador County Interfaith Food Bank. This donation will result in the Food Bank receiving over $12,000 worth of food from Raley’s this holiday season. Over the past several years, AWA membership fund drives have resulted in over $74,000 worth of food donations to the Food Bank.
