Nectar Announces Partnership with American Childhood Cancer Org
Nectar Tasting Room is pleased to announce the selection of American Childhood Cancer Organization INW for their quarterly Cheers for Charity partnership. The ACCO offers a network of support for children with cancer and their families living in and travelling to the Inland NW for treatment.
The ACCOI, formerly Candlelighters Northwest, exists to educate, support, serve, and advocate for families of children with cancer, survivors of childhood cancer, and the professionals who care for them.
“September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and everyone is encouraged to join us in our wholehearted support to bring awareness to and raise funds for this great organization,” says owner Josh Wade. Nectar members and guests are encouraged to support the ACCOI in one of several ways:
August 27: 2nd Annual Childhood Cancer Awareness Walk; join us at Medical Lake Waterfront Park in Medical Lake, WA at 11AM. After the walk you can enjoy a FREE picnic, face painting for kids, and music from The Vagabonds Traveling Show. Bring your walk shirt back to Nectar and get 1/2 price entry to The Final Sip at 9pm (reg $10). Find out more here.
September: Help raise some money by buying an ACCOI support ribbon ($1) that will hang at Nectar for the month of September. All proceeds go directly to the local ACCO I.
September 29-October 1: $1 from every bottle sold this weekend will be donated back to American Childhood Cancer Organization. Stop by and show your support. Stock up your cellar, buy wine for a friend, buy and support with every sip.
September 29: Join us for an ACCOI awareness night at Nectar where we will donate 10% of all proceeds PLUS $25 of every membership sold back to the cause. Please help spread the word and join us for this special night.
Cheers for Charity is a quarterly partnership with one select non-profit organization. “We’re excited to partner with these various organizations and provide what we can to make a difference in the world,” says Josh.
