EBERLE WINERY DONATES $3,000
A recent Eberle Winery fundraiser helped the Cuesta College Broadcast Communications Department get one step closer to its long-term goal. The college is currently in the middle of a three-phase, multi-million dollar upgrade for its television production facility located at the San Luis Obispo campus. On Saturday, April 16, 2005 Gary Eberle donated 60 pounds of tri-tip and his grilling expertise to help sell sandwiches and raise money for the cause. Eberle also donated ten percent of the weekend sales in his Tasting Room to Cuesta College. The total amount raised at this annual event was $3,000.
Gary Eberle is a long-time supporter of education in San Luis Obispo County. In addition to annual donations to Cuesta College, Eberle funds a scholarship for students studying Wine Marketing at Cal Poly. "I am a firm believer in the power of education," Eberle says. "I know it got me to where I am today. And I know every little bit of financial assistance helps."
