Susan and Tony


"The story of Camphill showed an historical movement that has successfully created a beautiful model for community living with the disabled population. It was thrilling and hopeful to learn that an organization existed that understands the needs, creative spirit and soul of special needs individuals."

- Susan Williams, parent of former student Tony B.

Meet Our Featured Guests in 2015

Our Honorary Chair, David Jeffrey, left a financial career in New York to pursue a long-held dream of establishing a great vineyard in California.

After building an educational and practical background in wine production, David and his wife Marla founded Calluna Vineyards on an 80-acre parcel in the Chalk Hill appellation of Sonoma County, which they began planting to Bordeaux varieties. Just a few years later, their 2010 Calluna Vineyards Proprietary Red scored 91 with Robert Parker. David lives on the vineyard with his family, manages the vineyard and does essentially all the wine-making.


Ursula Hermacinski (right) is one of the most respected wine auctioneers in the country. She helped establish the prestigious Zachys-Christie's New York wine auction, currently presides over the Napa Valley Wine Auction, and regularly takes the podium at high-profile benefit auctions. Ursula is Senior Advisor and Principal Auctioneer for Wally's Wine Auctions.

Charles and Barbara Orlando of the Yellow Springs Inn will bring their culinary talents to us once again as our Guest Chefs. The Yellow Springs Inn strives to create a memorable experience which is designed to surpass expectations, with a menu that features humanely-raised meats, wild game, seafood, and locally-sourced produce and cheese.

This gala fundraising event helps us provide extraordinary opportunities for young adults and adults with special needs! Our innovative residential, educational and vocational programs and supports help people with special needs explore their talents and grow their capacities so they can take their place in the world as valued contributors.
