As you know, amongst the many ways COVID-19 has affected our lives at VA has been the postponement of our 75th Anniversary Gala.  We are still planning this amazing event for Spring 2020, however it still feels like time to come together as a community...

You're Invited!
(a 21+ event)

DATE: Friday, November 6th
TIME:  7:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M.
LOCATION: Fully Interactive Zoom Party

Limited to 50 guests so sign up now!

On Friday, November 6th, Kevin Luther, the owner/operator of Voluptaury Wine in California will lead us on a fully interactive tour of his winery followed by a fun wine tasting experience.  It's a unique opportunity to have a "night out" while supporting the school we love.

In the week prior to the event, our guests will receive (via UPS) a 5-wine kit of 4 oz (100mL) wines - ranging from white to red - from his award winning vineyard.  Kevin will spend time talking about each wine while we enjoy them together from the comfort of home!  

In addition, Kevin will:

  1. Describe the flavors and offer insights on the winemaking process.
  2. Discuss food, music, and literary pairings for each wine
  3. Encourage your involvement by opening up for questions and discussion.

All proceeds from this event will support VA's efforts to provide a safe and healthy learning environment in the face of COVID-19.  As you can imagine, these costs are great.  However, we are committed to doing all that is possible to continue the school year in the safest possible environment.  These needs include (but not limited to):

  • Air purifiers
  • Expanding students' access to technology
  • Better bandwith capabilities

We are planning on having a great time together on November 6th and hope you will join us. Together, we have helped kick-off this school year.  You and I deserve a drink!


As of Sunday, October 25th, tickets are no longer on sale for this for this event.
