For 10 years, New Milford Spirit Shoppe owner John NeJaime has hosted the event on a semiannual basis, generating more than $30,000 to help women in need receive a free mammogram through the hospital.
"It's a great event for everyone," said Mr. NeJaime. "All the wines are chosen and targeted toward the upcoming holiday and winter seasons... all at terrific values that will enhance the enjoyment of holiday celebrations knowing that they are saving money and helping out a worthy cause."
A raffle will be comprised of donations from local businesses, with all of the proceeds to benefit the New Milford Hospital Mammogram fund.
A bottle sponsor is needed to help with the "buck a bottle" program; for every wine bottle ordered a sponsor will donate a dollar to the Mammogram Foundation. If interested in sponsoring or sharing sponsorship, call 860-354-7712.
