The holiday season is synonymous with a few key things. Among those? Drinking some great wine and giving back any way we can. So what if we told you there’s a way to support charities simply by drinking wine? Well, thanks to Willow Park Wine & Spirits’ Charity month, it’s basically that easy.  

The annual Charity Month, which kicked off for the 2nd year in a row, runs through ‘til December 1st – so you’ve got plenty of time to support ‘em. In addition to an online silent auction that went live earlier this week on November 15th, this year’s four charities of choice have each been allocated with weekly ‘Charity Sales Days’. That means that all you’ve got to do to help is pick from a variety of wines, beers, and spirits that have all been put on sale, and 15% of proceeds will go towards that charity. Neat eh?
