Sutter Home Family Vineyards has launched its 2012 Capsules for Hope program as part of its ongoing Sutter Home for Hope initiative. Sutter Home for Hope began in 2001, after one of the company’s owners, Vera Trinchero Torres, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Still an owner of the family-run business,Trinchero Torres is proud to be a breast cancer survivor and is dedicated to the cause. In the past 11 years, Sutter Home has donated more than $800,000 toward the fight against breast cancer.
Capsules for Hope continued through Dec. 31. For every top-quality seal from any Sutter Home bottle of wine that Sutter Home receives from consumers, the company will donate $1 to City of Hope, up to $100,000. City of Hope is a research, treatment and education center for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Consumers who purchase Sutter Home varietals packaged in a screw-cap closure may send in the receipt as a substitute for the capsule seal. Postage-paid envelopes are available on display at retail.
From Oct. 1 through Dec. 31, at the Facebook Sutter Home for Hope, viewers can post photos to honor survivors, or in memory of relatives who have lost their battle with breast cancer. For each photo uploaded Sutter Home will donate a $1 to City of Hope, toward the $100,000 Capsules for Hope program goal. Photos must be of adults over 21 and posted with consent. Any information disclosed is voluntary and may be used in accordance with our Sutter Home for Hope promotion.
Sutter Home will collect the photos and create a board of honor on Pinterest in addition to featuring them in the Sutter Home blog.
