Woodinville, Wash. — September 7, 2017 — As Seattle’s beloved Super Bowl Champions prepare for the season’s opening game day this weekend, so too will local fans and wine enthusiasts be preparing for their own victory in the fight against hunger when Eye of the Needle Winery in Woodinville kicks off its annual Bottles for Bread fundraiser on Saturday, September 9th.
“We want to give the 12th Man something to take to the game as well as give back to the community,” says Bob Bullock, who along with his wife Lauren first launched the fundraising campaign several years back to benefit the statewide Northwest Harvest non-profit food bank with their line of tasty and affordably priced wines labeled 12th Blend.
For every bottle of 12th Blend wines sold, two meals are donated—and guests are also invited to bring non-perishable cans of food and/or cash donations for Northwest Harvest.
