The Pennsylvania Winery Association (PWA) President Sam Landis will present a donation of $8,000 to the Fund to Benefit Children & Youth, an Allentown, Pa.-based charity dedicated to helping children in need throughout the Lehigh Valley on Saturday, October 16, 2010 at 11 a.m. at Vynecrest Vineyards & Winery in Breinigsville.
The money being donated was raised during the Great Pennsylvania Wine Toast, a one-day event held at more than 60 Pennsylvania wineries in August. The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth is the charity of choice of racing legend and wine enthusiast Mario Andretti, who served as the celebrity toastmaster during the PWA event.
The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth has helped more than 20,000 children since 1991. Last year, The Fund provided more than $200,000 to help abused, neglected and at-risk children and their families in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. One hundred percent of all donations made to The Fund go toward helping children in need.
