One Mission is a Boston-area childhood cancer foundation.  Last Thursday they had a benefit wine gala at the Boston Harbor Hotel to benefit Children's Hospital Boston.  A good friend mentioned the event to me and encouraged me to join him - I'm glad he did because I enjoyed the event very much.  They raised $190,000 from 200 attendees plus an additional $45,000 in a silent auction. There's an opportunity to support this cause by buying wine through the end of the month so I'd like to tell you about it.

I wasn't familiar with One Mission until attending this event.  I thought they did an excellent job focusing the night on the kids and their families and effectively informing attendees what it is they do and why you should consider supporting them with your charitable contribution.

Founder Ashley Haseotes' son was diagnosed with cancer 5 years ago.  She told a heart wrenching story about how difficult it was discovering he had cancer, how he almost didn't make it, and how life-altering the process was for their entire family.

I learned that One Mission focuses their support in two areas: (1) supporting programs seeking cures for pediatric cancer -and- (2) helping kids with cancer and their parents a little bit easier with things like care packages, meals, and parties in the hospital to give kids something to look forward to.

At the event they partnered with Marty's in Newton to pour 75 different wines.  They're offering 10% discounts on 12 bottles and 20% discounts on 24 bottles.  Use Coupon Code "One Mission" when ordering and 50% of the proceeds will go to One Mission.
