CK Mondavi’s fifth donation program runs in stores nationwide, May through August, 2016

CK Mondavi Family Vineyards announced today that they have begun their fifth annual donation program for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a program that supports wounded military personnel.

“My father, the late Peter Mondavi Sr., was a World War II veteran who believed in supporting our troops, and more importantly he believed in supporting this special group of heroes,” said Marc Mondavi, Proprietor of CK Mondavi Family Vineyards.

CK Mondavi Family Vineyards announced today that they have begun their fifth annual donation program for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a program that supports wounded military personnel. Over the past four years, CK Mondavi has generously donated more than $130,000 to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and plans to donate a minimum of $35,000 and up to $50,000 this summer.

“My father, the late Peter Mondavi Sr., was a World War II veteran who believed in supporting our troops, and more importantly he believed in supporting this special group of heroes,” said Marc Mondavi, Proprietor of CK Mondavi Family Vineyards. “We dedicate our 2016 donation program to my father and we hope that you will join us in supporting this fund that supports the injured men and women of the Armed Forces and their families.”

In addition, CK Mondavi has partnered with several distributors who will donate to the IFHF in 2016. Last year, Southern Wine & Spirits of New York, Connecticut Distributors Inc. and Young’s Market Company of Washington brought in an additional $10,000 in donations to the IFHF.

CK Mondavi began their partnership with IFHF in 2012 and annually runs an in-store promotion to raise money and awareness for this organization. Consumers who support CK Mondavi are also supporting our efforts to assist critically injured American soldiers and their families through the remarkable IFHF organization. Look for CK Mondavi displays which pay tribute to our heroes and are merchandised with valuable offers. This summer, CK Mondavi will donate up to a maximum of $50,000, to IFHF. Consumers can visit CKMondavi.com for more information on the program or to learn more about CK Mondavi wines.

“For half a decade, CK Mondavi 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.

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 nearly $200 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
