This holiday season, North Sonoma County residents can stretch their holiday shopping dollars while helping their favorite charities through the generosity of a local winery.
Lambert Bridge Winery will donate 25 percent of the proceeds of all wine purchases made by local residents from November 1 through the end of the year. The charitable groups that have been selected for the donation are Alliance Medical Center and the Healdsburg Animal Shelter.
“The depressed economy has greatly slowed donations to charitable groups this year while simultaneously creating an even greater need for their services. We see this as a way we can all help those less fortunate and help build a stronger community,” said Greg Wilcox, Managing Partner at Lambert Bridge. “We often need more wine to celebrate with our friends and family at this time of year and this program provides a way to enjoy good wine while helping our community organizations and those who need some help. It’s a win/win for everyone. We hope that we will be able to make sizeable contributions to these vital groups in our community.”
Jack Neureuter, CEO of Alliance Medical Center, notes that this is the second year in a row that Wilcox has extended this generous offer to the community. “Greg understands the value of collaboration and helping the community. He really gets it,” said Neureuter.
George Dutton, board member for the Healdsburg Animal Shelter, said: “The ongoing support of Lambert Bridge Winery is instrumental in the ability of the Healdsburg Animal Shelter to provide services to the Healdsburg community.”
In addition, Wilcox announced that Lambert Bridge Winery will match every dollar of accumulated proceeds, doubling the value of the donation for these two worthy local charities.
Wine purchases can be made by visiting the Lambert Bridge tasting room on West Dry Creek Road or by placing an order at www.lambertbridge.com. The program applies to all customers with a Healdsburg, Windsor, Cloverdale or Geyserville address.
