No matter where your patriotism lies, at some point this week your mind will wander to a place of pride and gratitude. We are luckier in more ways than we remember so that’s why we’re here today to make a little noise and profess our gratitude to the men and women that have fought for our freedom.
There are two charities, benefiting our troops, that we have been in support of during our five years in business - Snowball Express and Wounded Warrior Project. And you have contributed too! Every online purchase allows you to choose an additional charity beneficiary from our Shop & Give drop-down. Our Zinfandel contributes half of profits to Snowball Express and we recently SOLD OUT! Our total contribution to date to Snowball Express is over $28,000, helping to fund a special experience for the children of fallen soldiers to create new memories. Wounded Warrior Project has received $13,591 from your selected online purchases for the rehabilitation of those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world.
Thank you to our fans for spreading the word and purchasing our wine. Thank you to every service man and woman for making the ultimate sacrifice!
So now we celebrate! The ONEHOPE creative team has pulled together recipes for your plate, your glass and your table. These ladies know how to party! Last week we gave you recipes for the grill from steak to seafood. ONEHOPE Weddings cooled us off with a simple sangria made from a Sauvignon Blanc base. And Hope at Home helped us set the table to impress our guests at a patriotic party. We hope these tips and tricks of the trade can help you make it a great holiday. Post photos of your celebration to our Facebook or Twitter – we’d love to see them!
