For the ninth year in a row, when you purchase a bottle of FAT bastard wine through the end of October, a portion of the proceeds will benefit breast cancer research at the Hutchinson Center. The wine company will donate 25 cents for every bottle sold in a restaurant or retail store—up to $75,000—to national and local organizations committed to breast cancer research, education, treatment and support.
To date, FAT bastard wine has donated more than $216,000 to the Center’s breast cancer research efforts.
The label can be found in the French wine section of stores. During the promotion, bottles will sport a special breast cancer awareness neck tag with an attached pink ribbon pin.
Sourced in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, FAT bastard wines include chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, rose, pinot noir, shiraz, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Learn more more at www.fatbastardwine.com, including the story of how the company was named and stores that carry the label.
Note: Research indicates that those who choose to drink alcohol should do so in moderation only as part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which should also include regular cancer screening, good nutrition and regular physical activity. People who are concerned about their cancer risk should talk to their health care provider.
