"A Giant Day at Raymond Vineyards" marks the second partnership between the
Giants Community Fund, an award-winning nonprofit organization, and the winery.
Funds raised at the event will support the Giants Community Fund, a 501(c)(3)
nonprofit organization. Junior Giants presented by Bank of America, the flagship
program of the Giants Community Fund, provides more than 13,000 youth, ages 5 to
18 with a free, non-competitive summer baseball
program. Along with teaching baseball fundamentals, the leagues emphasize
building the four bases of character development: confidence, integrity,
teamwork and leadership. For more info on the Giants Community Fund, visit
