The owners of Adirondack Winery are making sure that everyone has an opportunity to Drink Pink for the remainder of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the sixth year, Adirondack Winery donates a certain amount from each specially marked bottle of their Drink Pink Berry Breeze blush wine for the American Cancer Society’s Marking Strides Breast Cancer Adirondack Chapter.
According to Adirondack Winery co-owner Sasha Pardy, last year’s fundraising goal was exceeded and they have high hopes that this year’s $6,500 goal will be met as well. The semi-sweet, fruit-infused wine is just one way people can contribute to the goal to fight breast cancer. Pardy has Uncorked events each weekend in October as well as created special pink wine accessories.
“We also have three amazing gift baskets that are valued at $1,600. Through donations from our friends in the community we can offer some great prizes. Tickets can be purchased online for the raffle baskets, special events, and the Drink Pink wine accessories,” says Pardy.
Pardy states that the raffle basket tickets can be purchased online, but can’t be shipped to the winners due to wine regulations. If the winner is from out of town, retrieving the basket will just be another reason to make a visit to Lake George.
“We are committed to raising this money and to this cause,” Pardy acknowledges. “We donate a certain percentage of every Drink Pink sale. We continue to work with local businesses to bring fun, entertaining events. We also want people to know they can join us for the Making Strides walk on October 28.”
Across the country the American Cancer Society holds non-competitive walks to raise funds for innovative breast cancer research as well as a way to honor survivors and remember loved ones. The Adirondack Winery is just one team helping to raise funds to help find a cure for breast cancer.
