Sponsor donations

At the Santa Barbara Wine Auction, we rely on the generosity of our community partners to make the auction a success. In addition to sponsorship, there are two other ways to contribute to our causes - by donating an item or service to the auction or by making a cash donation to Stand Up and Be Counted.

Stand Up and Be Counted Donation

Support health care for Santa Barbara County farmworkers

The 2022 Santa Barbara Wine Auction comes at a time where health care is a delicate and sometimes polarizing topic. Funds collected during the Stand Up and Be Counted portion of the auction will go towards supporting farm and vineyard workers in our community, Santa Barbara County. These funds will help with medical and dental expenses.

Direct Relief and Community Health Centers (CHC) share a common mission to support healthy people and create a stronger community and better world. Linking Direct Relief and CHC helps to bring greater access to those on the Central Coast who otherwise lack access to needed health services.

The Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation’s mission is ‘Grounded in Giving’. Creating a sustainable and thriving community unites us as winemakers and wine enthusiasts a like bringing us together as one community. We are proud to support these organizations who are dedicated to programs that focus on maintaining health and addressing the needs of the world’s most at-risk population.
