The sixth annual Paint the Town auction to benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Pure Imagination charity was held in October 2015. In lieu of a fundraising event, this year’s online auction raised $20,000, bringing the total donations to well over half a million dollars.

The weeklong online auction included a beautiful selection of artwork from Vinings Gallery and a wide variety of auction items ranging from events, exclusive VIP experiences, and a one-in-a-lifetime trip to Napa.

“We launched Pure Imagination as a way to encourage generosity in children, which is a value that we’ve instilled in our son, Lathan,” said Layla Gunn. “We were blessed with the arrival of our second child earlier this fall, and although we weren’t able to host a full-fledged, in-person fundraising event, we were delighted by the support of our close friends and contacts that made this year’s online auction so successful.”

The fundraising event, which is held approximately every 18 months, is expected to return in November 2016.


The highly-anticipated event will feature winery owners and winemakers from some of Napa Valley's most coveted wineries including:

Andrew Geoffrey Vineyards featuring Owner/Winemaker, Peter Thompson
Frias Family Vineyards featuring Owner, Fernando Frias
Hill Family Estate featuring Owner, Ryan Hill
Skipstone Ranch featuring General Manager, Brook Drummond
