Grace Your Holiday Table With “On Air” CapRadio Red
What’s the intersection of compelling public radio and fine El Dorado County wine? Community. Quality, Excellence and Community are shared goals of Capital Public Radio and the wines of C.G. Di Arie. Winemaker Chaim Gur Arieh and his wife Elisheva have crafted a “A Great Wine for a Great Cause”, Capital Public Radio.

“On Air” is a red blend of varietals nurtured and cultivated in C.G. Di Arie’s Estate Vineyards. While every component plays a role in “On Air”, none dominates, resulting in a perfectly balanced wine. C.G. Di Arie will also donate a portion of every bottle purchased to support CapRadio. Fewer than 160 cases were bottled, so this is a limited opportunity. To support CapRadio by making your purchase of “On Air,” click here.

The Giving Season Is Upon Us
Keep Capital Public Radio Thriving With Your Gift By December 31
Give now
Year-end will be here soon, but it’s not too late to help CapRadio flourish in the coming year. While there are many ways to give, here are two easy ideas for lending your support to CapRadio before the year comes to a close:

If you’re not giving monthly, consider starting an Evergreen donation of any amount that fits your budget. Over half of CapRadio’s members contribute monthly, because they know this support provides steady funding we can rely on.

Donate an unwanted vehicle. If you donate your car, truck, motorcycle or other no longer needed vehicle before year-end, you'll be helping CapRadio and you may qualify for a 2017 tax deduction. We’ll handle the process from start to finish and give you a tax receipt when we pick up your vehicle. Call 1-877-227-7277 by December 31st or click here to start your donation process before year-end.

If you have any questions about year-end giving, please contact Patricia Stoltz at (916) 278-8945 or
