Getting Loaded For a Good Cause
Of course I'm kidding with that title. But from the folks who gave you "Manny Being Merlot" and "Schilling Schardonnay" comes two new brands from Charity Wines: "ZinfandEllsbury" and "Chardon-K."
They are named for Jacoby Ellsbury and Josh Beckett, and proceeds from the wines will benefit three of Ellsbury's charities: Navajo Relief Fund, Project Bread and the Ellsbury-Read Project. The Josh Beckett Foundation will reap the benefits from his wine.
The wines will retail for $14 a bottle, and will be available this coming May at stores throughout New England where wine is sold. Since beginning their athlete-endorsed wines, Charity Wines has raised over $1,300,000 for their charities. Click this link for more about Charity Wines.
And on May 11th, there will be a launch party for the two newest wines at The House of Blues on Lansdowne Street from noon to 2 PM. Ellsbury and Beckett will be on hand to launch their wines.
