Raise a Toast, Raise Awareness. Live music until 4pm.
Laurita Winery, located in New Egypt, NJ, is one of the most unique wineries you will ever visit and they host memorable events such as the Vines of Life Walk for the Cure that guests thoroughly enjoy. Folks pledge to walk in honor of their grandmother, mother, aunt, sister or friend. They gather to support the fighters and honor the taken. There are few people who haven’t been touched by breast cancer in some way so it is a wonderful way to help raise money for such a worthy cause.
It’s not very often you see a fundraiser where folks walk through a vineyard listening to live music and enjoying wine and cheese tastings, much less be served by breast cancer survivors. Vines of Life Walk for the CURE has been fundraising for the Susan G. Komen Foundation every year since 2010. From humble beginnings with not many participants, the race has grown to host nearly 800 participants, raising thousands of dollars to further the Komen mission of providing early detection services for women in need. Laurita Winery has generously donated over $40,000 to Susan G. Komen thus far.
During the day, many folks stopped by our information table at the walk and shared stories about how their lives had been touched by breast cancer and why and who they were walking for.
Laurita Winery is proud to help raise awareness for breast cancer and give HOPE to others!
