“This cause is close to our hearts as Zonin, a family and an employer. It is important that we do our part and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
Casa Vinicola Zonin USA, a business unit of Casa Vinicola Zonin S.p.A, Italy’s largest privately owned wine company, announces a third year of fundraising efforts to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Beginning in September, in partnership with major retailers nationwide, for every bottle of Zonin Rosé sold in the United States, $1 will go towards breast cancer research.
Since 2012, Casa Vinicola Zonin USA has donated close to 200K; proceeds go to the American Cancer Society (ACS). Every sale helps fund program services, research, public health education, treatment, and screenings to come one step closer to finding a cure. Being a family business, Casa Vinicola Zonin understands the importance in contributing to raise awareness and will continue its efforts. This campaign is about making a difference and caring about a cause that matters.
“I lost my mother after a four year battle with breast cancer so this is a promise from a son to his mother and father to do something to help cure breast cancer. A promise made, a promise kept,” said Steve Howard, Zonin USA’s National Sales Director. “This cause is close to our hearts as Zonin, a family and an employer. It is important that we do our part and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
Zonin Rosé, part of the Zonin sparkling wines category, is a blend of white and red grapes, including the Nerello Mascalese grape varietal.
“Light pink color, dry, pleasant, intense and fruity, and evoking scents on wisteria flowers and Rennet apples. The palate is refreshing and delightfully well balanced with soft floral notes and a hint of almonds. —Excellent as an aperitif and an ideal accompaniment to hors d’oeuvres, risotto, or grilled fish.”
In addition to donations of every bottle of Zonin Rosé sold, Zonin USA will take part in a myriad of special events throughout October that supports breast cancer awareness, including: ‘Send Me On Vacation’ (http://www.sendmeonvacation.org) in NYC, DC, and LA, and ‘Think Pink’ in Denver, CO. In an effort to raise awareness and bring significance to this campaign, Zonin USA’s social media outlets will “turn” pink during the month of October (#zoningoespink #zoninrose, #drinkpink).
