The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar, Anaheim, Calif., raised $25,000 during its inaugural "Sunday in the Vineyard" fundraiser to benefit the Marconi Foundation for Kids and Child Guidance Center. The Marconi Foundation for Kids is a nonprofit organization and automotive museum that raises money for at-risk youth by donating proceeds from events and tours to local children's charities. Child Guidance Center helps at-risk children and parents build healthy family relationships through counseling and coaching.
