Drink Pink to Help Us Raise $8,500 for Making Strides!
It's Drink Pink season at Adirondack Winery and you can help us raise $8,500 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of the Adirondacks!
For seven years, we've made it our mission to raise more money than ever before for this incredible cause that provides life-saving services and programs to people touched by breast cancer right here in our community! This year is no different - but we need your help to get there!
Breast cancer has touched our customers, our family, and our friends, and we want to make a difference!
In fact, this year, a friend of one of our Tasting Room associates was diagnosed with breast cancer at just 36 years old. Her name is Janet Pratt, and her life has changed drastically since then - but she's a fighter and she's going to get through this thanks to the support of her community and organizations like the Making Strides!
"So many women each day are touched by breast cancer in some way," Pratt said. "Drink Pink is a way to help not only the breast cancer community but also the greater community. The more money raised, the closer we get to researching a possible cure for this terrible disease. Adirondack Winery is a wonderful organization to take on this fight with so many others. Buy a bottle of wine, make a candle, be a part of their team. It’s worth your while."
Making Strides (part of the American Cancer Society) organizes walks around the country to promote breast cancer awareness and fundraiser for life-saving programs and services like a breast cancer research, transportation to and from treatment, a 24/7 cancer helpline and so much more. But it's more than just a walk - it's a movement that unites a community in an effort to one day rid the world of breast cancer!
Adirondack Winery is proud to be the flagship sponsor of the Making Strides 3K walk on Sunday, October 27th, which starts at the Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls at 10 am. We hope that some of you will join our walk team and become Drink Pink ambassadors by posting links to our team page on your social media feed! You can sign up and point your friends and family to adkwinery.com/joinourteam to get started!
