Winery Charity Award Entry Deadline Almost Here!

Markham Vineyards in Napa Valley is promoting a special philanthropic program and it ends July 31st!

Non-profit organizations that work toward bettering their communities will want to take note. This year is the 4th Annual Mark of Distinction Initiative.  Two $25,000 grants will be given a nonprofit organization. In addition Markham Vineyards is producing two Estate Cabernet Sauvignon wines, The Philanthropist and The Altruist. For every bottle sold $1 will go to the selected nonprofits.

If you or an organization you know qualifies for one of these grants, submission is easy. According to my email, “Submissions should be no more than 300 words, and should describe the initiative, rationale and inspiration. The projects and initiatives can range from building community center playgrounds, to implementing a community recycling program, to founding a volunteer network for teens. A brief budget and timeline for execution should also be included.” Hurry you don’t have much time left to participate.

Markham Vineyards has also started a Sip of Service emphasizing that even the little things can count. Each week until Oct 2, one altruist chosen each week by a random drawing will be awarded a $200 prize. “To enter, individuals can share a brief statement online on the “Sip of Service” tab on www.facebook.com/MarkhamVineyards detailing how they have made a difference in their community and benefited someone else’s life.”

Congratulations to Markham Vineyards for supporting the improvement of communities!

Cheers! Kathy
