Second Annual Event at Bargetto Winery Benefits Habitat for Humanity Monterey Bay
Capitola, CA – June 29, 2017 – Bay Federal Credit Union’s Home Loans Department hosted its second annual Sip for Humanity event, raising $1,635 to benefit Habitat for Humanity Monterey Bay in May.
The invitation-only mixer at Bargetto Winery in Soquel featured a raffle, area wines for sale, and local guitarist, David O’Connor. Roughly 80 people, the majority of them real estate agents, were in attendance. A portion of wine sales and all proceeds from the raffle go to Habitat for Humanity Monterey Bay.
“This was such a beautiful event, both in spirit and in execution,” said Carrie Birkhofer, President and CEO of Bay Federal. “We couldn’t be happier to support Habitat for Humanity in making a real difference in the lives of those in our community.”
