Third Annual Event at Bargetto Winery Benefits Habitat for Humanity Monterey Bay
Capitola, CA – June 25, 2018 – Bay Federal Credit Union’s Home Loans Department hosted its third annual Sip for Humanity event, raising $1,383 to benefit Habitat for Humanity Monterey Bay on May 3.
The invitation-only mixer at Bargetto Winery in Soquel featured a raffle, area wines for sale, and local guitarist, Bob Burnett. Roughly 70 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.
“Bay Federal is committed to helping our members afford housing in our community,” said Carrie Birkhofer, President and CEO of Bay Federal. “Our Realtor partners and Habitat for Humanity are also dedicated to that mission, and this event was the perfect opportunity to honor and celebrate all that they do.”
