Door Peninsula Winery Makes Sizable Donation to Door CANcer

We just received this press release from Door Peninsula Winery .



STURGEON BAY – Door Peninsula Winery continued its commitment to philanthropy by making a donation of $2,186 to DOOR CANcer earlier this month at the annual Spring Fling event.

This year’s Miss Door County’s Outstanding Teen Sophia Pollman, whose father and grandparents own Door Peninsula Winery, presented the check at the event to DOOR CANcer’s vice president Barb Herdina before a capacity crowd at Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center in Sturgeon Bay.
The money was raised as a result from the sales of the winery’s Sweet Survivor wine – a special bottling of their flagship Sweet Cherry wine. With every purchase, the winery sets aside $1 towards DOOR CANcer, in their aim to help families who are struggling to cope with a relative battling cancer.
Since the Sweet Survivor campaign was launched, the winery has donated over $6,000 over the last four years, continuing the tradition of Door Peninsula Winery giving back to organizations up and down the peninsula.
