Pairing a grand cru audience of Giants Community Fund supporters and lovers of fabulous food and wine, the Giants Community Fund and Raymond Vineyard & Cellar will team up on July 30 to host "A Giant Day at Raymond Vineyards". Taking place poolside at the winery, nestled in the vineyards of St. Helena, guests will swirl and sip sample varietals from Raymond's renowned selection, while putting their taste buds to the test with a "Giant Sub-Sandwich" contest, enjoying live music, a silent auction and more.

Past and present Giants legends, and along with other sports celebrities will be in attendance, including Tito Fuentes, Bill Laskey, Rich Murray (SF Giants), Eric Wright (SF 49ers), Jacob Green (Seattle Seahawks), Maurice Lucas (Portland Trailblazers), Reggie McKenzie (Buffalo Bills) and more. Guests will meet and mingle with the greats, who will be available for autographs and photo opportunities.

Napa Valley restaurateurs, including Brix Restaurant, Compadres Bar & Grill, Fume Bistro, Hurley's Restaurant & Bar, Julia's Kitchen at Copia, Silverado Brewing Company and Silverado Resort are on deck to bring their delectable talents to the picnic level, by competing in the first "Giant Sub-Sandwich" contest. Taking a break from the sipping and nibbling, guests will have the opportunity to bid on fabulous silent auction items, such as an Honorary Field Visit for four at SBC Park, autographed sports memorabilia, wine and more.

"A Giant Day at Raymond Vineyards" marks the second partnership between the Giants Community Fund, an award-winning nonprofit organization, and the winery. Funds raised at the event will support the Giants Community Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Junior Giants presented by Bank of America, the flagship program of the Giants Community Fund, provides more than 13,000 youth, ages 5 to 18 with a free, non-competitive summer baseball
program. Along with teaching baseball fundamentals, the leagues emphasize building the four bases of character development: confidence, integrity, teamwork and leadership. For more info on the Giants Community Fund, visit www.jrgiants.org  or call 877-JR-GIANT.
