Fran Drescher will attend the first ever “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry” event at the Trefethen Family Vineyards this weekend, and she wants YOU to be there too.
The event will raise funds for Drescher’s Cancer Schmancer Foundation, a leading healthcare advocate organization aimed to raise national awareness on women’s healthcare and cancer prevention. Well-known Chefs, Vintners and Comedians – including Peggy Fleming-Jenkins, Donna Scala and K.R. Rombauer – will all come together for an afternoon of food, wine and FUNdraising at the Napa Valley vineyard.
Fran Drescher launched two charitable organizations in 2007, the Cancer Schmancer Foundation and the Cancer Schmancer Movement, both dedicated to ensuring that all women with cancer are diagnosed in Stage 1, when it is most curable. The Cancer Schmancer Foundation educates women on the risk factors, early warning signs, and tests that are available for early detection of women’s cancers. The Cancer Schmancer Movement advocates for improved women’s cancer healthcare legislation.
2008 marks a special year for Trefethen Family Vineyards: the winery celebrates its 40th anniversary. This is the first event the winery is doing to support cancer – a cause that has personal meaning to the Trefethen family. There is no better time to host an event that could both raise funds for cancer and celebrate an anniversary. The day will be filled with fun, including celebrity PMX bike races and a world-class auction that includes lots such as: a walk on role in the HBO hit show Entourage; an afternoon of car racing with John and Loren Trefethen; and a Trefethen retrospective tasting and dinner for four at the French Laundry.
The day starts at 11:30am on Saturday, September 20. The Trefethen Family Vineyards can be found at 1160 Oak Knoll Avenue, Napa, California. For more information and ticket prices, visit the Trefethen Family Vineyards website.
