Lafayette Hill, PA (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
The Celeste Alexandra Group, LLC announced today its sponsorship of the National Kidney Foundation and ongoing partnership that began at the NKF Golf Classic last Monday in Leesburg, VA. The company is the creator of the Wine Wagon, its first Made in USA product. With nine designs currently available in its Wine Wagon collection, the product made its debut at the event with a Naked Wagon donated to the Foundation for auction and autographed by current and former players from the Washington Redskins. The NFL athletes who signed the Naked Wagon participated in the charity golf tournament along with other locally recognized celebrities. The Celeste Alexandra Group, LLC is one of many companies who sponsored the event with a Platinum Hole Sponsorship in support of the NKF programs in research, patient services, education of kidney disease and donation awareness. The company is proud of its partnership with the Foundation in Washington D.C. with creative ideas for future events already in discussion.
“The Celeste Alexandra Group and Catherine's sparkling personality were such a welcome addition to our NKF Golf Classic,” stated Michele Anthony, Vice President of Programs and Communications at the National Kidney Foundation in Washington, D.C. The NKF Golf Classic is the nation's premier amateur golf event for charity. Each year thousands of golfers from across the country participate in the competition and the chance to win great prizes all to benefit a worthy cause. “We are so delighted to be working with the Celeste Alexandra Group, a family-owned business that has a true dedication to philanthropy. With the support of sponsors like them, we will raise over $4 million this year for the Foundation's programs.”
In addition to its sponsorship and donation of a Wine Wagon for the golf tournament, the Celeste Alexandra Group, LLC CEO and co-founder volunteered at the event. Her and her business partner brother have volunteered for various causes during their adult lives years before they started their company. “We're thrilled to have established a wonderful relationship with Michele Anthony and the National Kidney Foundation,” stated Catherine C. Roberts, CEO and co-founder. “We're fortunate to have the mutual support of a fantastic team of people working for an important cause we can dedicate ourselves to serving.” The sibling entrepreneurs even feel a special connection to the NKF for personal reasons. The company believes in the importance of contributing to charitable organizations. The first NKF event the Wine Wagon made its debut at is one of many the company plans to focus its efforts on supporting in creative and entertaining ways.
Even though the Wine Wagon is intended to overtly display or intriguingly hide away a box of wine, the company promotes other beneficial uses for the product. The canvas top opens to reveal a body that can accommodate in addition to a rectangular box: plants, floral arrangements, fruit, candle jars, containers and more. As with all Celeste Alexandra Group, LLC products the Wine Wagon is entirely Made in the USA and currently available in limited quantities until further production.
