Sun Valley, CA (Nov. 02, 2006) - CaesarStone, the original manufacturer of quartz countertops, is proud to announce its sponsorship for Under One Roof's Sparkle SF, a fundraiser to help fight the battle against HIV and AIDS. Under One Roof's second annual fundraising event, Sparkle SF: The Champagne and Sparkling Wine Tasting and Auction, helps fund more than 33 non-profit HIV/AIDS service organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. The benefit took place Nov. 3rd at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco, with more than 500 champagne and sparkling wine connoisseurs in attendance.

Sparkle SF's wine tasting was presented by 15 internationally renowned wine producers including Iron Horse Vineyards, Moet and Chandon, Perrier Jouet, GH Mumm, Clover Hill and Taltarni. In addition to the wine tasting, Sparkle SF included live and silent auctions and a diamond tasting. Sponsored by Joy Sterling and Iron Horse Vineyards, Wine enthusiasts purchased glasses of champagne to discover which one out of the 100 glasses held a real diamond while the others held cubic zirconias.

"We're honored that CaesarStone is able to lend its support to help Under One Roof raise funds for those suffering with HIV or AIDS," said Arik Tendler, president of CaesarStone.
