Go Fund Me: The Niman Ranch Next Generation Scholarship Wine Dinner, hosted by Mattison’s, featuring Benziger Family Wines and a 6-course delicious menu benefits small family farms by covering college expenses so youth can learn farm management and return to their family farms to help keep them sustainable. Edrington, a premier spirits company, has set up a Go Fund Me to benefit the Niman Ranch Next Generation Scholarship Fund. They are double matching all donations made to the Go Fund Me effort. Come to the dinner! If you can’t attend the dinner we hope you will consider donating to the Go Fund Me and together we can help small farms survive for us and our future generations.
