A Red, White & Blue Wine Slushy for a Good Cause
Treleaven by King Ferry Winery donated funds to the Ithaca chapter of Team Red, White and Blue - created by Cornell University’s Veterans Colleague Network Group (VCNG).
On November 6, Jase Baese, Team RWB’s Ithaca community captain since February of 2014, and his family accepted a $500 check from the winery’s Director of Operations, Lev Saltonstall.
"We are really honored to be able to provide support to the men and women of the Ithaca chapter of Team Red, White and Blue who care for our Veterans,” said Saltonstall. “Jase and his team are doing a wonderful job in re-engaging veterans in their communities - these men and women served our country and kept us safe, so we are proud to be able to give back."
The funds were raised from Patriot Wine Slushy sales during The Great New York State Fair, which ran from August 27 through September 7.
Cornell University helps support staff and faculty veterans through the Cornell Veteran’s Colleague Network Group, sponsored by the Office of Inclusion and Workforce Diversity. The group has led the way on several campus initiatives benefiting veterans, including launching the Ithaca chapter of Team Red, White and Blue, which is a national not-for-profit organization who aims to improve the lives of America’s veterans by re-engaging them in their communities through physical and social activities including fitness, racing and community gatherings.
