JSerra: Stronger Together

Join the JSerra community on Saturday, November 7, 2020, for the 2nd annual event, Uncorked: JSerra Stronger Together. Now more than ever, our community needs to reunite together, celebrating our strength and resolve for a cause bigger than our own, building on our mission to form the faith, intellect, and character of our young men and women at JSerra. This year in particular, JSerra’s school wide fundraiser is a necessity, in support of our efforts, to continually exceed safety standards for our student body and staff, as well as further build our infrastructure, and assist our students impacted financially due to the current environment.

With the recent unexpected expenditures skyrocketing over $1.5 million dollars with investments made towards Covid safety requirements, advancing remote learning technologies on campus, and supporting our families in need, your generosity will make an immeasurable impact. All efforts will also go towards advancing our Magnet, athletics, and arts programs, as well as supporting over 40% of our student body receiving assistance and scholarships. So, let’s forge ahead, and enjoy our community in a safe and fun environment, while we support JSerra!

You have several options to help support JSerra. Whether you are comfortable at a COVID compliant on-site event, Uncorked@TheSurf&Sand, with cult Napa Valley vintners and local breweries, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, or prefer to host your own small gathering, Uncorked@HomeWithFriends, for an in-home wine virtual tasting with a JSerra Uncorked Party Kit, or simply participate in the live and silent auction from the comfort of your own home with your family enjoying a bottle of wine, Uncorked@HomeWithFamily, we have you covered!

This exceptional multi tiered event promises to be a memorable time filled with cheer, camaraderie, extraordinary experiences, continuing a precedent of excellence for years to come with the generosity from our own local community, our JSerra families and alumni.

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8 | NIV

Come meet some of Napa Valley’s most exclusive wineries with top cult winemakers, and exquisite cuisine, as well as our amazing local breweries!
