Supporting Veterans after they've supported us is a big deal to me. A handful of my clients are organizations that help the military, military families and veterans. I also like wine, so when given the opportunity to try two wines while supporting Veterans, of course I said yes.
If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you know my week was full of wine flights. During those gatherings, I loved being able to have a topic of conversation that involved wine and my life: CK Mondavi + Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
Last weekend, my husband, an Active Duty Marine, Brady and I went to an Easter egg hunt hosted by another Active Duty Marine. We were surrounded by Marines, their families and CK Mondavi wine - it was great to have a great day with great people and even better vino.
Through August, CK Mondavi is donating a percentage of each bottle sold (up to $50,000) to Intrepid Fallen Heroes. I had the pleasure of visiting Napa last year, so even before tasting CK Mondavi wines, I knew they would be great since CK Mondavi is ran by the legendary Napa Valley wine icon, Peter Mondavi Sr., a World War II Veteran.
So this summer, while you're sipping on a smooth wine from CK Mondavi, you know you'll be supporting Armed Forces and their families.
Please comment below to share your own story about supporting veterans and/or American-made products. I will select ONE reader to be entered into CK Mondavi’s grand prize drawing by May 15. The grand prize is a $500 donation to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund in the winner’s name!
About the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund:
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a leader in supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. Begun in 2000 and established as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003, the Fund has provided close to $150 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. These efforts are funded entirely with donations from the public, and hundreds of thousands of individuals have contributed to the Fund.
The IFHF Mission Statement
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund serves United States military personnel wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families. Supporting these heroes helps repay the debt all Americans owe them for the sacrifices they have made in service to our nation. They are, in the words of our founder, the late Zachary Fisher, “our nation’s greatest national resource,” and they deserve all the help that our nation can provide. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a leader in meeting this important national mission.
