YOUR EPICUREAN
ADVENTURE AWAITS

The Sonoma Epicurean is a signature series of events that will feature curated and hands-on experiences with Michelin-star and award-winning chefs, local artisans and world-class vintners with focus on lifestyle, wellness and sustainability. Proceeds from the event will fund cancer research and related programs to benefit the V Foundation for Cancer Research.

The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded in 1993 by ESPN and the late Jim Valvano, legendary North Carolina State University basketball coach and ESPN commentator. Since 1993, the Foundation has funded more than $260 million in cancer research grants nationwide. Event proceeds benefit cancer research funded by the V Foundation. The Foundation awards peer-reviewed grants through a competitive awards process strictly supervised by a Scientific Advisory Committee. Please visit v.org for more information or to MAKE A DONATION.
