The Causes

Some races donate a few dollars from your entry fee to a charitable cause. This race is different – every penny we make goes to help the children of our community. We have no paid staff, and the vast majority of the work of putting on the race is done by volunteers. All proceeds from this event support the charitable programs of the Kiwanis Club of Cloverdale Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, including fully funding the Cloverdale chapter of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, bringing the gift of reading to the children of Cloverdale.

The Imagination Library, begun by Dolly Parton in 1995, fosters a love of reading in preschool children and promotes early childhood literacy. Locally, the Imagination Library provides a high-quality, age-appropriate book to every Cloverdale child, every month, from birth until the age of five. It’s during these important first years that the seeds of literacy are sown, and literacy is key to learning in all subjects throughout life.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library currently serves over 1,600 communities in the US, the UK, Canada and Australia, and over 1,000,000 children receive books each month. To date, the Imagination Library has delivered almost 100 million books to children worldwide, and over 10,000 in Cloverdale.

In response to the catastrophic fires of October, 2017, the Kiwanis Club of Cloverdale Foundation decided that all proceeds of the 2017 Cloverdale Vineyard Races, beyond what is required to continue our ongoing literacy programs, will be directed to fire relief efforts as follows:

▪ 50% to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund, a project of the respected Community Foundation Sonoma County
▪ 50% to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund, in partnership with Redwood Credit Union, The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire
