California wine-businesses are donating money. #CAWINESTRONG
In the wake of the devastating Northern California wildfires, participating wineries and other wine-loving businesses throughout California are donating a portion of their proceeds during the month of October to support local community relief organizations in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Solano counties.
Through the end of October, #CAWINESTRONG Partner Businesses are contributing a portion of their proceeds to make a difference in the lives of those who have lost everything. The CAWineStrong Network, a group of wine industry leaders from California’s major winegrowing regions, are asking related businesses, such as wineries, tasting rooms, restaurants, hotels and wine bars, to consider partnering in this effort.
RAISE AND GIVE MONEY: What’s needed most is money to be able to respond to the individual needs of the affected families. There are numerous ways to provide these funds:
- Donate a set amount
- Offer a portion of your businesses revenue for a period of time (you decide on portion and timing)
- Collect donations at your place of business
- Create an event to raise monies
- Share the information with your networks
100% of proceeds donated to local charities.
Questions about the campaign or how to get involved can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
California wine industry leaders have formed a support network to provide immediate assistance and long-term aid to victims of the fires ravaging Northern California. The network extends throughout the Golden State and beyond, with calls for the national wine and wine loving communities to join. Organized by a group of association leaders representing California’s major winegrowing regions, support efforts include the #CAWineStrong joint fundraiser and creation of an online resource database where vintners can find and offer ground-level resources, such as generators, trailers, lodging, and manpower.
