New York, NY and Napa, CA (PRWEB) May 11, 2015
CK Mondavi Family Vineyards announced today that they have begun their fourth annual donation program for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a program that supports wounded military personnel. The 2014 donation totaled $48,000 and to date the winery has donated a total of more than $105,000 to the fund. The family-owned winery also announced that CK Mondavi’s fourth annual donation program kicked off nationwide May 1, 2015, and will run through the end of August. The CK Mondavi Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund program consists of in-store coupons and rebates that when redeemed generate a $1 donation by CK Mondavi to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
CK Mondavi chose this charity in particular because as a World War II veteran, Peter Mondavi Sr. believes in supporting our troops, and more importantly supporting this very special group of heroes. Peter Sr. continues his regular involvement with the winery’s business and turns 101 years old this November, 2015.
“We’d like to thank our customers, distributors and retailers for really stepping up in 2014 to help us generate a total of more than $105,000 in donations to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund,” said Marc Mondavi, Proprietor of CK Mondavi Family Vineyards. “The fund provides greatly needed support to the injured men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. We hope to beat our 2014 donations in 2015 and we ask our customers to assist us by purchasing CK Mondavi wines this summer.”
CK Mondavi Family Vineyards began their partnership with IFHF in 2012 and annually runs an in-store promotion to raise money and bring attention to this organization. In addition to their performance-based donation, CK Mondavi Family Vineyards encourages consumers to make a direct donation to the organization through in-store promotional materials.
“CK Mondavi Family Vineyards has been a great supporter of Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and we truly appreciate their generosity and commitment,” said David Winters, President of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
Consumers can support IFHF by purchasing CK Mondavi Family wines with the IFHF coupon on the bottle. For each coupon redeemed, CK Mondavi will donate $1, up to a maximum donation of $50,000, to IFHF. Consumers can visit CKMondavi.com or scan the QR codes on the IFHF coupons for more information on the program or CK Mondavi wines.
About the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a national leader in supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families, has provided over $150 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. In 2010 the Fund opened the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) to support the research, diagnosis, and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health (PH) conditions. In 2013 the Fund launched a new $100 million campaign to build nine “Intrepid Spirit” centers at major military bases around the country. These centers will serve as satellites to the central NICoE facility and extend that care to more service members and veterans suffering TBI, PH conditions and related afflictions. Three Intrepid Spirit centers are already open and two more are under construction. http://www.fallenheroesfund.org
