Event Details

As part of an ongoing partnership with Sunset magazine and after continued support from the Celebration Weekend and 2012 Wine Competition volunteers, Children’s Health Council (CHC) has been asked by Sunset to provide approximately 40 participants to help with the second annual Sunset International Wine Competition. It will be held at the Sunset campus at 80 Willow Road, Menlo Park, on April 6, 7, 8, and 9.


All participants will be paid minimum wage plus any applicable overtime in addition to getting wine. CHC and Sunset hope that all participants will strongly consider making a donation of either all or part of their earnings to CHC upon registration. Donations are tax deductible.

Participants are being asked to commit to all 4 days of the competition and those that do will be given preference, followed by those that register for three and then two days. There are a limited number of positions available.

Participants will be required to attend one 2-hour information and employment enrollment session March 10-12 with weekday, evening and weekend choices (food and wine provided). Participants will be served continental breakfast and lunch each day of the event; there will not be an opportunity to leave the campus during working hours. Must be 18 years of age to participate.

Children's Health Council

At CHC, we believe in a world where every child can reach their promise and potential. Our mission is to remove barriers to learning regardless of language, location, learning style or cost.

CHC has been helping children and families for over 60 years, impacting over 100,000 children so far. CHC is comprised of five divisions under one roof and provides a combination of behavioral health and education services to families in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties as well as the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Nowhere but at CHC can a family be assured of receiving expert interdisciplinary care and multicultural sensitivity from bilingual therapists along with personalized education from caring teachers. We serve approximately 1800 families each year through our schools and clinics and another 1500 individuals participate in our parent education classes. The five divisions of CHC are:

The Center: Evaluation, therapy and learning

Sand Hill School: For K-6 kids with dyslexia and language-based differences

Esther B. Clark School: Therapeutic day school for ages 7-16

The Community Clinic: Serving the underserved

Parent, Teacher & Professional Education: Classes, meetings and resources

We are currently staffed with 140 employees, including both part and full time employees. CHC has approximately 300 volunteers that contribute annually to day-to-day operations and/or fundraising events. Multiple collaborative partners help us through volunteering efforts and funding support.
