“I attend many fundraising auctions yearly; however this event is my favorite. Uncorked is in my own backyard, the venue and the feel is smaller, well-organized and raises a surprising amount of money for a great cause.” Joe Dobbes, Owner & Winemaker, Dobbes Family Estate
On May 17, 2014, approximately 450 wine lovers will join local Oregon wineries and businesses to fight child abuse. The 7th Annual Uncorked Wine Auction features to-quality wine, food, and unique travel opportunities.

About the Foundation
For over 17 years, Family Building Blocks has worked tirelessly to keep children safe and families together. With the countless pressures and difficulties facing communities today – everything from abject poverty to drug use – the comprehensive assistance provided by Family Building Blocks has helped hundreds of children at risk of harm remain safely in the care of their own parents, and avoid the trauma and expense of foster care. Family Building Blocks’ child abuse prevention programs serve children and families in Marion and Polk counties and provide a wide variety of services dedicated to meeting the needs of children at risk of abuse. In 2013, a remarkable 99% of the children who were involved in FBB’s core programs were able to live safely with their parents, thus avoiding the trauma of abuse, neglect and foster care. www.familybuildingblocks.org
