CHICAGO, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- If you've ever attended a charity event and bid on any wine-related item to support the charity, you can now do it from home and have the wine delivered to your door. When you purchase wine from the Cellar Angels winery partners, including some of the biggest names in Napa and Sonoma, you get to select which charity they will support with ten percent of proceeds.
Cellar Angels (http://www.cellarangels.com) is a unique wine-philanthropy group that today announces three new charity partners: Ophthalmic Women Leadership, Clinica Verde and Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.
"It's really an exciting day as the outpouring of support for our charity partner program has been amazing to witness," said Martin Cody, President of Cellar Angels. "Each of these charities resonates with our membership and all have funding needs. Now wine lovers everywhere can support three more causes through Cellar Angels."
Cellar Angels currently works exclusively with Napa County wineries and Sonoma County wineries to offer its members highly rated wines at discount in the name of charity. Once each week Cellar Angels members receive a private email alerting them to that week's offer. Within each email is a link to the offer and a custom movie filmed of the winery, wine and people behind the wine. The member also receives tasting notes and a custom recipe often provided by a celebrity chef. After their purchase, members are able to select from a handful of charities to direct Cellar Angels' contributions towards. Membership in Cellar Angels is currently free.
