Dear SV Friends,
As you know, Salted Vines supports many local organizations for their fundraising efforts, and has many different events at the winery to support a variety of causes and charitable groups. Katie & Heather have teamed up to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in the 2020 Man & Woman of the Year campaign, which is a philanthropic competition to raise funds to support those impacted by blood cancer. We are competing with several other Man & Woman of the Year candidates in Southern Delaware to raise money for LLS. Together we will each put our best fundraising foot forward in honor of two courageous children, Caleb and Cece, our Boy & Girl of the Year.
Why is Salted Vines participating in this worthy cause?
We all know cancer effects all of us in some way or another and below is a personal story from one of the Salted Vines manager's Heather Spencer, candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign.
"My younger brother was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Stage 4, in September of 2016. In October 2017, he received an allogeneic bone marrow transplant. I was thankfully a 100% match and was able to be his bone marrow donor. I have experienced firsthand the physical, mental, and emotional toll that it takes on friends and family that have a person close to them battling cancer. I am beyond grateful that my brother is currently in remission. When LLS approached Salted Vines to be part of the campaign, it struck a chord deep in my soul. We met with Brianna Hancin, LLS Campaign Specialist, and she is supporting us through our campaign. Brianna is also a survivor herself. After meeting and speaking with her for the first time, hearing her personal story, and sharing my experience with her, it became even more clear that participating in the 2020 LLS Campaign was meant to be. If there’s any way that I am able to help one more person or family by assisting to raise money to fight the war against cancer, I want to help. My hope is that with the money we raise, and with continued research and care given by dedicated and talented medical professionals, we can lessen the number of those affected by blood cancers and increase the number of survivors."
