This year at Great Chefs and Wineries, Lifehouse is proud to host twenty-six of the finest wineries in the North Bay. In October of last year, the North bay was plagued by devastating fires but the mantra going around is true- “The love in the air is thicker than the smoke.” Although, the smoke has long now faded, the community continues to band together. Over $18 million has been raised to support individuals affected by the fires. In the spirit of community, this year Lifehouse will be donating 3% of the proceeds from Great Chefs and Wineries 2018 to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund.
