Bin Ends Wine in Braintree, MA (the area's premier off-price wine retailer) is holding their now-monthly fine wine flea market this Sunday October 25th, 2009 from 1-5PM. This time, they've selected a charity to benefit from the festivities- Hugs for Healing.
I asked Bin Ends Managing Partner Craig Drollett for some additional information about the event. Here's what he had to say:
Question: It's great to see the event provide support for a local charity. How did you chooose Hugs for Healing, and why is the cause special to Bin Ends Wine?
Craig Drollett: The charity was actually chosen by our store manager Dan Comer who has a family member dealing with cancer. He came to us with the idea back in August, and we wanted to do everything we could to help support the cause.
Question: How can people support the cause at the event?
Craig: There will be multiple ways to support. Representatives for Hugs for Healing will be here in the store accepting donations, we'll have special wine offers throughout the day that the proceeds will go towards the cause and there will also be a very exciting raffle in which we'll be giving away large format bottles, (via a giftcard) and gift cards to local businesses.
Sounds great. I'll look forward to attending the event and I hope you will too.
