Ciao, tutti! We are in the home stretch of the Beat Cancer Piedmont Wine Fundraiser! If you haven’t entered and want a chance to win these amazing wines – and, help someone out – do it today!
Quick recap: We are raffling off a case of Piedmont wine to raise money for cancer relief support.
The program kicked off in December to support Michelle and her daughter, Ashley. Michelle is fighting Stage 4 Colon Cancer and needs financial support for medical and everyday living expenses.
The last day to enter is January 17th – Michelle’s 40th birthday. So, get your donations in today to help her celebrate! Michelle just completed her fourth round of chemo and is well on her way to beating this!
Just $25 enters you into the drawing to win this amazing case of Piedmont wine. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to Michelle and Ashley.
What you can win!
We received a very generous donation to add to the package from the U.S.-based author, Suzanne Hoffman. She has generously offered a copy of her book Labor of Love: Wine Family Women of Piemonte. The book chronicles 22 wine families, focusing on the women behind the wine estates in Barolo, Barbaresco, and the Roero. It offers a compelling look at the history and culture of Piedmont. Four of the wine families mentioned in the book have donated wine to the case. I will be collecting signatures from as many of the wine families as I can before it ships out to the winner.
All the wines donated came from the wineries with the exception of the Barbera magnum; that was donated by local Alba wine bar, Voglia di Vino.

How to enter:
For every $25 donated you receive one entry into the random drawing for this case of Piedmont wine. That means if you donate $100, you will be entered four times. We will cap out the number of entries to 10 per person, but of course, you are welcome to donate more than $250 if you would like. The cap is in place to generate as much interest as possible from different parties.
1). Fill in the Entry Form below. We need your name, email address, and geographical location (physical address is not needed, just city, state, and country for eligibility purposes). This information is necessary so we can contact the winner.
2). Make your donation. Click the “Donate Now” widget after you fill out the entry form to make your donation.
The fundraiser runs through January 17, 2018. The drawing takes place on January 18, 2018, and the winner will be notified for shipping details (for shipping eligibility, see terms and conditions below).
A HUGE GRAZIE MILLE to everyone who has participated! Best of luck to all the entrants and much, much love to Michelle and Ashley!
