Willow Park Wines & Spirits (WPWS) has kicked off its 2nd annual Charity Month, which launched Nov. 4 and runs until Dec. 1. Fundraising activities will take place with weekly “Charity Sales Days” and an online silent auction, with funds going to support local organizations fighting cancer, poverty and unimaginable tragedies.
“All year long we work with many charities to support their fundraising efforts,” says Peggy Perry, president of Willow Park Wines & Spirits. “Come November, we focus all our energy on a select few that have a deep connection to the trusted experts and our community.”
Each organization will have Charity Sales Days dedicated to their cause – they are live for seven days with 15 per cent of the proceeds going to the featured charity. The Soley Haiti School Project by Mario Bollag launched the program Nov. 4 through to Nov. 10. A variety of wines, beers and spirits will be on sale at WPWS’s online store as well as at the Willow Park location. Other organizations taking part in Charity Sales Days include Wellspring Calgary, Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan and the Alberta Cancer Foundation – in support of the Calgary Cancer Centre.
“We’re excited to be a chosen charity once again by Willow Park Wines & Spirits during its Charity Month,” says Gina Chavez, resource development manager of Wellspring Calgary. “We thank you for all you are doing for Wellspring Calgary and the members. We’re privileged to serve so that no one has to face cancer alone.”
Bid, bid, bid!
The online silent auction will run from Nov. 15-30. Over 120 fabulous items — travel, exclusive wines, large format bottles, trusted expert hosted tastings and unforgettable experiences — will be available for bidding on Givergy (givergy.ca/WPWS2021). All funds raised will be donated directly to each charity.
