One of our favorite events has become the benefit dinner we hold for our friend, Coach June Jones and his June Jones Foundation. This year our event will take place on July 30th at 7pm at the soon to be opening Southern Comforts Roadhouse Grille, owned by our friends Chef Andrew Ormsby and Patrick Tetrick with incredible wine from Siduri and Novy Family Vineyards, sponsored by Mr. Vic Salvino.
Siduri was created by Texas natives Adam and Dianna Lee who had a dream to make great Pinot Noir in Sonoma from the best fruit sourced throughout California and Oregon. Their dream became a fantastic success, leading to the start of their sister winery, Novy Family Wines, with Dianna’s parents making wine from all varietals.
We are thrilled to partner with both of them for this fantastic dinner raising funds for our friend, June Jones and his foundation. June started his foundation while still coaching at The University of Hawaii with a goal to help improve the quality of life for needy families of children with life-threatening illnesses as well as other charitable causes. Each and every year the work of the foundation impacts and improves thousands of lives across the country and across the world.
As always, former WFAA film critic/current producer for Lascaux Films and Dallas Uncorked Board Member, Gary Cogill will host a discussion with Coach Jones on his foundation and they great work they do, as well as the upcoming SMU football season.
And, get ready for a fantastic silent auction!!!!
Items include special selections of wine, sports memorabilia, 2012 SMU football sideline passes, a wine country get away, movie memorabilia and much, much more.
