Our Vintner Grant Honorees, Elaine & Rick Jones, of Jones Family Vineyards, were awarded a pancreatic research grant at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

It’s the personal connection that forms the powerful emotional spirit of the auction gala evening. As he addressed the group, Coach K asked diners to stand if they were a survivor of cancer and then to stand if they knew a friend or family member who had had cancer. “Is anyone still sitting?” he asked. It didn’t look like it. “Everybody’s part of the team tonight.”

Jimmy was about winning, and if as a result, we’re finding cures, cancer is losing; but we haven’t won yet. – Coach K
