SANTA YNEZ, Calif. -

The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation is going north into the Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo to expand its fundraising reach.

The second annual Sangria Soiree took place at the Sunstone Winery Sunday.

Proceeds will help the foundation with support services for families of children with cancer.

That support includes financial assistance and specific needs for parents including child care, hotel accommodations, and educational assistance when a child is getting care.

The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation serves Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties.
