Our family at Valenzano Winery recognizes that we have been blessed with a successful business. With that acknowledgment we have made a pledge to help our local community and those who are struggling both economically and physically. Valenzano Winery has been a benefactor of hundreds of charities and fundraisers over the years. We believe that giving back is the responsibility of any community business.
Supporting Our Troops
A portion of the proceeds of Valenzano’s ‘Red, White & Blueberry Sangria’ is donated to military charities. Currently, Valenzano Winery has donated $27,000 to Semper Fido (semperfido.org). The Mission of Semper Fido’s program is to unite wounded warriors suffering with PTSD with homeless, rescue shelter dogs, who are evaluated and deemed viable, to nurture a healing and rejuvenating bond between the two. The result is a positive, non judgmental, unconditional relationship desperately needed by both.
In the past, we have worked with Operation Troop Aid. OTA raises funds in order to send care packages to our men and women serving in the military overseas.To date, Valenzano Winery has sent over $60,000.00 worth of care packages oversees to our military.
Valenzano Winery is located near the Joint Base McGuire- Fort Dix and are frequented by many men and women from this base. Throughout the years we have hosted and participated in dozens of fundraisers for the military. We were also selected to host the Army’s Birthday Ball in July of 2011.
Valenzano Winery will continue to expand our charitable efforts as our business expands. As a New Jersey winery, we feel that as long as our customer base support us; it is our duty to try and make a difference by supporting our community.
Because we receive dozens of donation requests each week, we are not able to donate to everyone that makes a request, but we try our hardest. If we think a requested donation can really make a difference in someone’s life then we will do our duty to try and help those who are in true need of charitable assistance. Each Christmas Season Valenzano Winery hosts a private party which supports a selected charity. Over $55,000 has been donated from our Christmas Ball & Fundraiser since it was started in 2000.
