We’re Giving Back to Our Local Heroes

Next Wednesday, we are partnering with Hook & Ladder Winery from Sonoma for a Wine & Dinner Cruise. The background behind their name goes back to Cecil De Loach who was a firefighter in San Francisco while also helping establish the Russian River Valley as one of California’s most famed grape growing regions.
This story has inspired us to give back to our local firefighters at the South Walton Fire District. In addition to a raffle that night to collect donations, SunQuest is donating $1 for every new ‘like’ to our Facebook page back to the South Walton Fire District.
