Dear V Foundation Friends and Family,

Thanks to you, the Inaugural Sonoma Epicurean has raised $2.4 million to support the V Foundation’s fight to achieve Victory Over Cancer®, with proceeds funding critical research through the Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund. We’ve held true to Jim Valvano’s legacy to ‘never give up’ and honored Stuart's memory by accelerating his mission to improve outcomes for minorities disproportionately affected by this disease. 

Thank you to our hosts, honorees, vintners, donors, partners, guests, volunteers, board members and staff for an incredible weekend that we hope has inspired you as much as it has moved us. We especially thank our Sonoma Epicurean Committee for their dedication and perseverance in bringing this historical event to life and the Sonoma County community for welcoming us with open arms. We are honored to welcome you to the V Foundation team. 

As Sonoma Epicurean Chair, Stuart Bryan, states, “Cancer knows no boundaries, and it knows no appellations - we need to all come together in the Fight Against Cancer.”  Together, as one team, we will keep advancing toward an inevitable cure for this dreadful disease. 

We are so grateful for your commitment to our cause, and look forward to seeing you again next year! The 2nd annual  V Foundation Sonoma Epicurean  will be held in Healdsburg in March 2023. Look for registration emails in the fall! 

With sincere gratitude,
