Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery is pleased to announce that they raised $20,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2020 Man & Woman of the Year campaign. Earlier this year, General Manager, Katie Duke, and Assistant Manager, Heather Spencer teamed up to support this philanthropic competition to raise funds to support those impacted by blood cancer.
“Every year, we support many local organizations and charitable groups by hosting different events at the winery. In joining the LLS campaign, we had an additional connection to the cause through our Assistant Manager, Heather, whose younger brother battled Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and is currently in remission. We would like to extend our thanks to our wonderful customers, friends, and business partners who donated and made this campaign such a great success,” said Katie Duke.
Salted Vines raised funds for their campaign through a variety of activities including direct donations, corporate sponsorships, and winery specials. In support of their efforts, the winery also released Warrior, a limited-edition wine, and donated a portion of the proceeds for every bottle purchased.
All the donations received through the campaign went directly to LLS to not only support research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well. To learn more about the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, you can visit their website.
“It was such a rewarding experience to take part in the LLS Man & Woman of the Year 2020 campaign. I truly enjoy being involved in philanthropic work for such a great cause. I would like to thank all of the generous people that contributed time and donated to our fundraiser. My LLS Team, The Salted Vines Wine Warriors did a wonderful job of supporting me in our fundraising efforts,” said Heather Spencer.
