“The Giants are successful because of these young new players like Posey, Baumgarner and Lincecum,” explained Harmony Foundation head Steve Ledson. “They were just kids the other day themselves. So we have this special price to recognize the Giants, but just as important give every kid a chance to become a professional and help us build America’s future, our kids. Please purchase your memorabilia bottle today while we still have a few and know you are making a difference in some kid's life and building on the future of America.”
Bottles can be purchased at The Castle in Kenwood, at www.ledson.com or by calling (707) 537-3810.
The Ledson Harmony Foundation was started to give kids a leg up. The Foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to deserving children’s related endeavors including local girls softball teams, Make-a-Wish foundations, the Anderson Valley school district, the Sonoma Charter school playground, the Flowery School in Sonoma and Sonoma Jazz + music programs, to name a few.
Previous high-profile celebrity humanitarians to be honored with wine bottlings include singer Michael McDonald, actor Jeff Bridges and San Francisco 49er Dwight Clark. All proceeds from Harmony Collection Wines have gone to youth-related organizations.
