$1.4 MILLION RAISED

Olympic Gold Medal Skater and V Board member, Peggy Fleming hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the V Foundation Wine Celebration funded Wellness Center at Queen of the Valley Hospital. The Vintner Grant was awarded in honor of Garen & Shari Staglin, of Staglin Family Vineyard for Leukemia research, in memory of Garen’s father Pasquale Stagliano, at the University of Chicago Cancer Research Center. The Fund A Need for special melanoma research was in honor of the late Gil Nickel, founder of Far Niente. A successful campaign ensued to raise $1 million to endow the Fellowship for the Gil Nickel Fund awarded to The UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center.

I feel very grateful that I survived and my message is early detection.
