Honigs raise $215,000 for Type 1 diabetes

Napa, Calif.—Honig Vineyard & Winery began the 2017 harvest by hosting singer Nick Jonas at an event for the diabetes awareness and fundraising group Beyond Type 1. The fundraiser, which drew a crowd of 350 and raised $215,000, also featured Team Bike Beyond bicycling team, several local businesses and many other supporters. The Aug. 10 event began in the vineyard with Honig winemaker Kristin Belair and Jonas sampling sugar levels in Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Winery owners Michael and Stephanie Honig have been supporters of the Beyond Type 1 group since their daughter Sophia was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 5.
