We are in need of wine! Donations are down this year and due to the fires in Napa we have lest donations coming in from wineries and friends who work in the industry. If you can find your way to donate a bottle or two, preferably at the 20-25$ price point each, we would be incredibly grateful. Thank you in advance for your support.


We will be collecting wine out front of the school this Wednesday and Friday mornings (10/18 and 10/20)  from 8:00-8:50am. We are not allowed to collect on campus but I or someone will be standing out front to relieve you of your vintastic donations. If you can't make that you can always contact me ( to arrange a pick up or drop-off. 


The Fall Auction is coming up quickly and donations are down this year. We could really use your help! If you are not sure of what to buy or donate feel free to reach out and we can help. Or consider contacting Vintage Berkeley! They are offering a 20% discount on all bottles purchases for the auction. The best performers are wines with “auction appeal”—well known labels, interesting wineries, large formats - or just your favorite bottle! 


Vintage Berekeley is located at 2949 College Ave in Berkeley. You can contact them at 510-549-9501 or

Just make sure they know it is for JOAQUIN MILLER ELEMENTARY AUCTION and we will pick it up and take care of the rest.


For every $25 worth of wine each family contributes by October 31, you will be entered in a raffle for a free child’s outing with his/her teacher. This means you will have first dibs on a spot at a teacher-led outing...before the auction begins.

Thank you in advance for your donations!
