Sonoma County's Face to Face & Equality Wines Launch Holiday Fundraising Effort for World AIDS Day
Wine purchases contribute to ending HIV in Sonoma County and support people living with HIV/AIDS
"We are honored by Equality Wine's generosity and willingness to support our important efforts to end HIV in our community and help those living with this disease," said Dennis Agnos of Face to Face.
"I'm humbled to have helped create a legacy for my husband through the fight for marriage equality, and he would be proud to know that his legacy extends beyond the landmark Supreme Court decision and into other issues that affect the LGBTQ community and many others worldwide," said Jim. "Face to Face has always sought to provide the most efficient and effective delivery of care services to their clients, with an eye for those with the most critical need. Equality Wines is proud to stand by their efforts, as they remain committed to HIV prevention in hopes of ensuring a safer, healthier future for all."
There are two wines available from Equality Wines: Love Wins Cuvée, and The Decision Pinot Noir. Both wines are produced by famed wineries in the Russian River Valley. The cuvée comes from Iron Horse Vineyards and the pinot noir from Giusti Ranch. Equality Wines also offers a "Biscuits and Bubbles" gift set that includes Guerneville's own Big Bottom Market Biscuit Mix and Orange Blossom Honey, which were recently designated by Oprah as one of her favorite things for 2016.
About Equality Wines
Equality Wines is the world's first "cause" wine portfolio dedicated to equality for all people. The portfolio is inspired by Dr. Marilyn Shultz, the aunt of Equality Wines' co-founder Matt Grove, who in 1971, led the class action discrimination suit against NBC and its affiliates that ultimately re-shaped the company. Equality Wines is a perfect pairing of their shared passions for excellent wine and equal rights issues. The first Dr. Marilyn Shultz Tribute Wine, Love Wins Cuvée, honors Jim Obergefell and the late John Arthur, whose landmark Supreme Court case declared that all states allow and recognize same-sex marriage. A pinot noir named The Decision has also been released. For more information visit http://www.equalitywines.com.
