Bright Lights and Beaujolais


This fundraising event is being hosted by Sara Gopal and Bill Duff in their beautiful newly constructed home perched on the north hills of Pittsburgh. The views of downtown and the point are magnificient!


November 17th is the day the 2022 wine from France's Beaujolais region is released and Bill and Sara thought it would be a nice kickoff to the upcoming holiday season.


100% of donations go to support VCAYA with the goal of improving the lives of vulnerable children. 


Specifically, we are raising money to fund two initiatives in Uganda: 
     (1) the education of girls and 
     (2) drilling new wells that benefit the whole community, but particularly improve the lives of girls who             no longer have to spend hours a day fetching water.


Bill and Sara are drawn to this charity because all of the donations go directly to the cause and it's so impactful.  $150 pays for a year of tuition, room & board and supplies! About $5,000 can provide a well and accessible clean water that is life changing with exponential impact.


We all believe these young women can change the world if given the chance - we hope you can join us for an evening of fun.
