1st annual ValleyCare Foundation award goes to winery owner Michael Callahan

Local philanthropist has even created a wine called 'Philanthropy'

The ValleyCare Charitable Foundation board of directors has awarded Michael Callahan, owner of Rubino and Ruby Hill Vineyards, the first annual ValleyCare Charitable Foundation "Follow Your Dream Award."

"Mike has provided tremendous support to the ValleyCare Charitable Foundation," said Bob Shapiro, its co-chair. "Not only has his winery hosted events for us, he has created a wine, called "Philanthropy."

A portion of each bottle sold goes to the charitable foundation, Shapiro added.

Rubino has hosted release parties which feature the wine and the Philanthropy Cabernet Sauvignon wine, which is available for purchase at both Rubino and Ruby Hill wineries in Pleasanton.

The ValleyCare Charitable Foundation is a 501(c) (3) corporation with the sole purpose of raising funds for Stanford Health Care -- ValleyCare.

Shapiro said the foundation has been generously supported by the Tri-Valley community for over 50 years, including by the annual Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund.
