My blogging buddy and real-life friend, Valerie, has close friend who has recently been diagnosed with colon cancer. Val has started a fund to help with the overwhelming expenses for her friend going through cancer treatment. You might think, “pretty far removed from my life”, but you should read on! You see, Val and her husband Evan are wine guides in the Piedmont region of Italy. To encourage those of us who would like to help but might need a little push, they have sought donations from some top winemakers and business owners in the region for a little raffle.

Want all the details?  Jump directly to Val’s blog, where you can find out more and make a donation. $25 buys you a raffle ticket for a chance at that impressive case of wine straight from the Piedmont. Note that they will ship the winner their wines virtually anywhere wines can be sent from Italy, including most of Europe and the US!  I bought a couple of tickets, you’re just one click away from helping, too!

About the Beat Cancer Piedmont Wine Fundraiser

The fundraiser was developed by Valerie of Girl’s Gotta Drink, a wine and travel blog focused on the Piedmont region in Northern Italy.

Valerie’s friend was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon cancer that has spread to her liver. To help with financial relief, Valerie created this fundraiser by collecting wine bottle donations from her network in the Langhe and Roero. Now, Girl’s Gotta Drink is selling entries to win this case of Piedmont wine.

The mix features big names, cult producers, up-and-coming producers, bottles from the acclaimed 2013 Barolo vintage, top single-vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco wines, and other unique wines that tell a different regional story.

In total, the case includes eight bottles, 10 standard size bottles and two magnums. The bulk of the wines are from the area’s prized Nebbiolo grape, but also feature a very special Arneis (a white that is indigenous to the Roero) and a top Barbera. These wines are incredible.

How can you get a chance to win? Simply donate $25 and fill out the entry form. The contest runs through January 17, 2018. One lucky winner will be selected at random.

Meet Michelle: At 39 years old, Michelle is a single mother, now undergoing chemotherapy with a 50 percent chance of survival. As a single mother, Michelle has been struggling to make ends meet, working two jobs to provide for her and her 10-year-old daughter. She gives on a daily basis both in her personal life and as an emergency dispatcher. Between health insurance and a loss of income due to the physical toll of both the illness and the chemo, the goal of this fundraiser is financial relief while also providing a little pot of gold for one lucky donor.
