Williamsburg Winery Donates to Riverside Foundation to Support Breast Cancer Patients
The Williamsburg Winery donated $2,088 to the Riverside Foundation late last month to help support preventative screenings and support services for breast cancer patients and their families.
The winery teamed with the Riverside Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Riverside Health System, to create a special label for a limited release of its 2020 Rose. All 348 bottles sold with a portion of the proceeds amounting to $2,088. This is the second consecutive year for the fundraiser, which raised $2,016 last year.
“We are delighted to again support the Riverside Foundation for a cause that touches the lives of so many people who are important to us,” said Patrick Duffeler, founder of the Williamsburg Winery. “We share Riverside’s commitment to the overall health and wellness of our community members.”
Duffeler presented the check to Kristen Witt, Chief Philanthropy Officer with the Riverside Foundation, at the Gabriel Archer Tavern. “We appreciate the Williamsburg Winery helping us fulfill our mission of caring for others as we would care for those we love,” Witt said. “We are grateful for the continued support that makes a difference to those who turn to us for hope and healing.”
