Wooden Valley Winery is pleased to present this talented group of artists who have signed on to donate their time and help us support the Wounded Warrior Project at our Food Truck Friday events. Without these wonderful individuals, our contribution to Wounded Warrior Project through our Food Truck Friday events wouldn’t be nearly as successful as they have been.  To date, with the help of musicians like these, we’ve been able to donate over $19,000.00 to the Wounded Warrior Project and with your help we will continue to donate. We have a goal of raising another $10,000 in 2016 and we believe we can do it!! Please come out and support these wonderful bands and support those who serve our country.
