Shaken, Not Deterred!

Description

Visit http://napafarmbureau.org/. The Napa County Farm Bureau's historic building was badly damaged in the recent Napa Valley earthquake. Please join the efforts to restore it to its previous glory. Built in 1908, just two years after the devastating 1906 quake, this grand old edifice has stood strong for over 100 years, a jewel at the center of the Farm Bureau community. But in the early hours of August 24th, the Napa earthquake shook our building to its foundations - causing windows to shatter, the lathe and plaster walls to crack and crumble, and tossing computers, furniture, and files over like toys. Extensive damage occurred on all floors and much could not be salvaged. Repair and restoration for our beloved building is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands. With your help, we can raise $150,000 to repair and restore our Napa County Farm Bureau building! Please take a moment to go online at www.napafarmbureau.org and make a donation today! Donors contributing $100 or more before February 10 will be entered into a raffle drawing to win a Napa Dream Trip package with a week at the River Pointe Napa Valley Resort, two dinners at local eateries, wine tasting certificates and a selection of wines from our member growers. Drawing will be announced on "We love our Donors Day," February 14, 2015! We thank you in advance for your donation and for helping to keep Napa County Farm Bureau strong for the next 100 years by restoring our historic building. With your help, we will remain "Shaken, not deterred!” Thanks to our friends Tim and Noel of Partners2Media for creating this great video!
