St. Helena, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
CK Mondavi, a wine brand owned and operated for four generations by C. Mondavi & Family, announced today that the company is raising funds that will support The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF). Through an in-store promotion kicking off May 1, 2013, and lasting through August 31, 2013, the company will donate up to $50,000 that will lend support to the families of military personnel lost in service and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans.
“At CK Mondavi, not only is American-made wine important to us, but so is our family and our country,” says Marc Mondavi, co-proprietor of CK Mondavi. “Through our combined support of these heroes, we can raise awareness for a meaningful cause that resonates with us. My 98-year-old father, Peter Mondavi Sr., is a World War II veteran and still very involved in the business. Through his guidance, our family wants to help repay the debt that all Americans owe our brave military personnel for the sacrifices they have made in service to our nation. This program gives us the opportunity to show our appreciation for their bravery and selfless commitment to maintaining our freedom."
“We’re grateful to CK Mondavi for their dedicated support of our troops and our veterans,” said David Winters, President of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. “We are always humbled when great American companies step up to help those who have worn our nation’s cloth into battle and help those who need it most.”
CK Mondavi is an American family owned and operated producer of popular-priced wines offering exceptional value and consistent quality. All grapes are grown in America, California to be exact, and the wines are 100% produced and bottled in the United States. This commitment to American soil ensures maximum wine quality and reflects a dedication to supporting American jobs.
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. The Fund most recently opened the National Intrepid Center of Excellence to support the research, diagnosis, and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). In 2013 the Fund launched a new $100 million campaign to build nine NICoE satellite centers at major military bases around the country. These satellite centers will extend the care provided at NICoE to more service members and veterans suffering TBI, PTS and related afflictions.
