Butter Be Good
JaM Cellars loves to be Butter than good and supports charities and individuals each year financially and with in-kind donations of wine and our team’s time and leadership. Check out what we’ve been up to and see how you can get involved.
Wine plus Music — What a Sweet Relief!
From festivals and live JaMSessions at our Napa Wine & Music Studio to our virtual JaMHappyHours on Facebook and YouTube — JaM loves music! What better way to show our love than supporting musicians in need. For the third year, we’ve renewed our commitment to support Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. We have raised $54,513 through monthly JaMHappyHour performances benefiting Sweet Relief (featuring artists like G. Love, Lisa Loeb, Cassadee Pope, and Mondo Cozmo), co-branded merchandise, and viewer donations — helping hundreds of artists in need. We’re thrilled to continue our efforts by committing another $25,000 over the next 12 months and YOU can help! And here’s how…
JaM Out & Raise Funds
Every month, usually on final Fridays (unless we’re at a festival!) our JaMHappyHour livestreamed show benefits Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and is hosted by iHeartRadio radio personality Jana Sutter. For every like, share or comment you make during a benefit show, JaM Cellars will donate $1, up to $2,500 per show. We couldn’t be more excited to connect you with delicious wines, great music and do a lot of good all while having a great time!
Shop to Donate
The JaM Cellars merch tent is now open and 100% of proceeds from co-branded merch will go to Sweet Relief. Party like a JaMRockstar in comfy vintage-wash tees, or rock a chill vibe with an old-school felt-letter pullover — your new favorite cozy sweater. And is any outfit really complete without a good trucker hat? Show your Napa pride with JaM Cellars merch and support this amazing non-profit while you’re at it!
