Wine Country Nights & Donation Form

Hello Labrador Families! We are looking forward to once again hosting Wine Country Nights at 3 Steve's Winery on Friday, May 13, 2022, after a two year hiatus. Let's get ready to celebrate with our fellow Labrador parents, guardians, and staff, for an evening out! In past years, we have asked each class to create and donate a themed basket to be auctioned off at our WCN event. This year, we are seeking individuals or groups who would like to create a basket or who would like to donate items for the auction. Please sign up here to make a basket!

All items should be donated by April 25th and can come from individuals, businesses, and from our community. Themed baskets are a great way to generate interest for the evening and silent auction...we need your help to make Wine Country Nights a fun success! In the past, baskets have included Livermore activities (dining out and wine tasting), kids birthday parties, family fun packs, weekends away, coffee, chocolate, cabins, Date Night, Ladies Night, All Things Outlander, Movie Night (tickets & popcorn), Spa Day. We encourage you to reach out to our supportive Livermore community for some or all of the items and a donation letter for local businesses with our Tax ID will be sent to your email provided. We ask for a minimum value of $50 per basket. Thank you!
