TEMECULA – Rolling for a Cause, a Temecula-based nonprofit organization, announced the results of its most recent “Bunco in the Vines” fundraiser. The event, held Sunday, Sept. 25, 2022, at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula, attracted more than 130 attendees and generated an undisclosed amount of net revenue.
“I continue to be amazed and blessed by the support we receive at our events, which typically sell out within hours of tickets going on sale,” Dorothy “Dot” Hawthornesaid, founder and president of Rolling for a Cause, said. “Everyone is always excited to hear about how our proceeds are directly helping those in our immediate community.”
Proceeds from the event benefited more than 20 people in need from the local community and were used for such initiatives as paying rent and utilities, providing shelter in hotels, purchasing food and receiving Christmas gifts.
“What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon,” Linda Holibonich, attendee at the September 2022 event, said. “My friends and I love this fundraiser and the impact made by its proceeds within our community. It’s a well-organized event that’s really a blast, and the food and wine is always delicious. There are also always many beautiful silent auction items.”
The organization’s next event will be held Sunday, April 30, at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula, for which $55 tickets will be available for sale Monday, April 3. The ticket price includes a buffet lunch and glass of wine, as well as participation in three rounds with six games in each round of bunco, a popular dice game. Raffle tickets for gift baskets will also be available for purchase, and attendees will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items.
“I still remember being invited to one of the first Rolling for a Cause events,” attendee Kym Russell said. “I was impressed at the organization of the group, with a friendly presence. They are known in the community for their work. I am touched with the stories of the people who are blessed by them, and look forward to the latest stories of care and love toward their recipients. I am always excited to attend their upcoming events as I know I’ll meet new people, have so much fun and participate in an excellent cause that serves our community well.”
Alison Bailey, a known singer from the local Temecula area and an upcoming contestant on the 2023 season of “The Voice,” which is available for viewing on NBC and The Peacock streaming network, will also perform at the event.
