Each year Auburn Road makes two major donations in the name of our Auburn Road Wine Club and its Members. The first is to our Give Peach a Chance Charity and the second is our annual donation to the Walt Whitman Association.
The Give Peach a Chance Charity of the Year

All charities nominated are posted and promoted on our Facebook page for the year.
