"GrapeFest is about community, and we feel that it is the perfect venue for the community to come togther not only to celebrate, but also to bond together to help those in need. We thank the dozens of city employees and volunteers who staffed the Red Cross booths during the festival and all of the guests who contributed to the relief fund."
