On May 11th, 2013, Ken and Diane Wilson partnered with the Sonoma County Farm Bureau on an event set up to help send vineyard workers’ children to college. The Wilson Artisan Wineries’ Children of the Vineyard Workers Scholarship Fundraiser took place at Soda Rock Winery in Alexander Valley.
This 12th annual event themed, "Pack Your Bags," drew 150 attendees. Vineyard workers from throughout Sonoma County were encouraged to have their children apply for this scholarship, and 22 students have now been awarded money for the 2013-2014 academic year. All students will receive their scholarships this summer in time to aid with tuition, books, enrollment fees, etc.
