Women for WineSense raises money to aid women looking to pursue an education in the wine industry
Olympia, WA (PRWEB) July 06, 2012
Women for WineSense is an organization that focuses on wine industry education and networking for both wine working professionals and wine lovers alike. They have chapters in states such as New York, New Jersey, Washington, Texas, Virginia, Oregon and Colorado, with headquarters and it's original charter in California.
Through various events and auctions, Women for WineSense raises money to aid women looking to pursue an education in the wine industry. Last week, Geraldine Sbragia, WWS Director of Donations Napa/ Sonoma Chapter contacted Wine Rack Store to request some fundraising assistance for their scholarship program.
Wine Rack Store chose to contribute to their cause by donating a 40 bottle wine cube stained amaretto, for the silent auction. "Our products always receive a lot of attention at auctions." said Heather Hoskins, Wine Rack Store Director of Communications. "And anytime our products can be paired up in a wine like event setting, its even better."
In its more than 17 years in business, the online wine rack retailer has prided itself on giving back to the community. In 2011 alone, the store had donated wine racks to eleven different causes.
Through the various types of wine rack donations, WRS has helped raise funds for numerous Boys and Girls club branches, student scholarships for schools such as University of Washington, CSU Monterey and UC Davis, non-profit clinics in Sacramento, the Washington State Combined Fund, Concern for Animals, Military Families and of course their on-going donation to breast cancer awareness through sales of their breast cancer themed wine charms.
And while many of the events featuring Wine Rack Store products are held in various states across the USA, anytime a fundraising event is held in the Pacific Northwest area, Hoskins is sure to attend. "I've participated in wine tastings and silent auctions from Seattle down to Portland, I love watching our wine racks at work."
