SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The annual Napa in Newport event, which raises funds to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, raised $1 million during its March 14 event at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel.
The third annual wine auction has been raising funds to support CureDuchenne’s mission to extend and improve the lives of those affected by Duchenne, a genetic disease that causes muscle degeneration in children.
During the event Chef Amar Santana created a meal exclusively for the guests and there was a live auction.
A portion of the proceeds will fun gene editing research.
