Join us as we honor the Ukrainian soldier and civilian amputees here in the Bay Area getting fitted for prosthetics - and the organization that makes it happen. The benefit is for Prosthetics for Ukrainians, a nonprofit Protez Foundation initiative, that is playing a role both crucial and timely.
War always has its collateral damage, its widows and orphans. In Ukraine the damage is more intentional than collateral, cities of rubble with blown up infrastructure and people with blown off limbs. A new breed of prosthetic makers has sprung up to patch arms and legs back on soldiers and civilians. The amputees fly halfway around the world to medical facilities where they find strangers who greet them as family. They get state-of-the-art prosthetics and rehabilitation therapy from the Protez Foundation.
The ones these doctors, nurses, and craftsmen call “heroes” are renewed, and go back to their lives with dignity. Each case is a life-changing miracle for them, and more miracles are limited only by the resources available.

We invite you to come out for a special event at our winery on Treasure Island: an afternoon of music, food, and wine and a chance to meet some of these renewed heroes and the amazing miracle workers of Prosthetics for Ukrainians who make it happen.
