It's that time of year again, when wine bloggers cast their covetous eyes towards the Wine Bloggers Conference, wherever it may be (this year, in Santa Barbara County, California). Those with ample trust funds, the childless, the ones with a handle on their finances -- they're all ready to go. For the rest of us, there's the Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship Fund (WBC Scholarship).
The WBC Scholarship allows wine bloggers, who otherwise could not attend, a stipend that pays for some or all of the costs associated with the Conference. Kovas received a grant last year, allowing him to enjoy the wines of British Columbia. We'd both love to go this year, but, as always, our budget is directed mostly to our kids, so the Conference is unlikely to happen without donors' generosity.
That's where you come in - donate today (or tomorrow), ask your local winery to pony up, and send some wine bloggers to California. WBC14 is fast approaching and the Scholarship Committee cannot do it on their own. Even if we do not end up attending the Conference, it truly is a worthwhile effort to support.
