Thank you to all the volunteers who actively helped out, and to all the people who were patient and understanding about any changes in routine brought on by the Wine Event this weekend.  We couldn’t do it without you!

It always takes a few days to nail down exact numbers, but we are pleased to share that our preliminary amount raised is definitely over $200,000, making last night one of the most successful in the 17 years of this event. Also, the cash ask (which this year will help fund building maintenance and renovations) is hovering around $44,000, our highest number in the past 8 years.

“There is a knighthood of the 20th century whose members do not ride through the darkness of physical forests as of old, but through forests of darkened minds. They are armed with a spiritual armor and an inner sun makes them radiant. Out of them shines healing - healing that flows from a knowing of the Image of the Human Being as a spiritual being. They must create inner order, inner justice, peace and conviction - in the darkness of our time.” Karl Koenig, founder of Camphill
