The Golden Gate Business Association of San Francisco will honor Out in the Vineyard founders and organizers Gary Saperstein and Mark Vogler, who just finished hosting Gay Wine Weekend two weeks ago here in Sonoma.

Saperstein and Vogler will be guests at a celebration tonight, Friday, July 28 at Lambert Bridge Winer in Healdsburg.
Saperstein said in an email, “We are truly honored to be recognized for our work in support of our LGBTQ community here in Sonoma County.” The event is from 4 to 6 p.m. Free to GGBA members, $25 public. 4085 West Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. firstname.lastname@example.org.
