Peju Winery Helps Make-a-Wish® Bring Holiday Cheer Through Fundraising Campaign


Peju Winery launches Make-A-Wish® holiday fundraising campaign.

Rutherford, CA (PRWEB) November 03, 2012

Peju Winery has launched a fundraising campaign aimed at granting a wish to one local child this holiday season. Proprietor Ariana Peju announced today that during the months of November and December 10% of all net proceeds from non-wine purchases made at the winery boutique or online at will be donated to Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area.

As a family-owned winery heading into our thirtieth year we pause to reflect on how important it is to share our good fortune with those who are in most need. We chose to work with Make-A-Wish as a way to grant a wish to one local Bay Area child who is going through a tough time in their life and provide them with some hope, strength and joy during the holiday season.

“We are delighted that Peju chose to help Make-A-Wish this holiday season. Through this program, Peju will be giving a child who is battling a life-threatening medical condition something to look forward to and plan for. We think there is no better gift!” Patricia Wilson, Executive Director Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area

This November and December visit Peju Winery located in Rutherford in the Napa Valley and their beautiful holiday winery boutique and a portion of your purchase will go toward a very valuable local Bay Area cause. For those who can't make it to the beautiful Napa Valley you can still assist in making a contribution by visiting the Peju online holiday catalog:
