Inglenook Vineyards teams up with Illinois retailers to fund breast cancer research


CONCORD, CAL—As part of its national breast cancer awareness campaign, Inglenook Vineyards is teaming up with Illinois wine retailers this October during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Inglenook hopes to raise $15,000 in the state to fund important breast cancer research.

“Inglenook is proud to partner with local retailers to help find a cure for breast cancer,” said Rob Smith, the Central Division Promotion Manager for Inglenook. “We hope local residents will join us in this important effort.”

Wine retailers across the state are supporting the Inglenook breast cancer campaign by promoting the program with in-store displays. Consumers interested in supporting this effort can purchase Inglenook wines at these stores during the month of October, and a portion of sales will be donated by Inglenook to breast cancer research.

In addition to partnering with retailers, participating in local events across the country and supporting local charities, Inglenook Vineyards will donate a portion of national October sales to the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). The funds will be used to provide “Inglenook Awards” to up to 20 early-career scientists to enhance their education. AACR is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focused on preventing and curing cancer.

Recent studies show that breast cancer is the leading form of cancer in women, and one in nine women will develop breast cancer. With its large number of consumers, Inglenook—a Canandaigua Wine Company brand that sells nearly 4 million cases of wine each year—hopes to raise public awareness of the disease and encourage support for finding a cure.
