Words From Past Sponsors:

Every kid deserves to grow up healthy. Having witnessed children mired in poverty, this cause stuck a chord.

My colleague, Mark Richards has traveled extensively in south east Asia and in fact, spent several weeks in Myanmar just last year, where he saw firsthand the need for this this type  of medical support, in this part of the world. We felt this event gave us an opportunity to help make a small difference in the lives of children who really need it, but who may not garner the attention of the media to accentuate their cause. The fact that this event promises to be a great social get-together and includes wine, is just a  bonus!
