|Graton Ridge Cellars hosts Pink Party Oct. 19
Graton Ridge Cellars will host fifth annual Pink Party celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The party will be held “open house” style during their normal business hours of 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 and held at the Graton Ridge tasting room.
The party features wine tasting and appetizers for $10 per person, which is donated directly to the Sutter North Bay Women’s Health Center. Those purchasing wine will get a pink boa.
Whether people can attend or not, they are encouraged to send in the name and/or photos of loved ones affected by breast cancer for the ‘Pretty in Pink’ Wall of Fame.
Graton Ridge Cellars has partnered with Sutter North Bay Women’s Health Center in Santa Rosa to donate a portion of their wine sales on this day. Discounts will also be offered on a few select wines. Graton Ridge Cellars has donated more than $6,000 to the Santa Rosa breast care facility.
According to the American Cancer Society, about 1.3 million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually worldwide, and about 465,000 will die from the disease. Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States.
The highest concentration of breast cancer in the United States is found in the San Francisco Bay Area. This year, nearly 400 Sonoma County women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and about 85 women will lose their lives to it.
