Digging deep for drought relief
Thank you for your generous donations.
Thank you for your generous donations towards the drought relief effort. You donated when you purchased wine from us or by being the successful bidder for a 6 pack of rare and exceptional wines. A total of $362 has been forwarded to the CWA NSW for their drought relief effort.
The dry is marching inexorably south from New South Wales and Queensland, and our fellow farmers there are in great distress. We can't sit idly by. We have two fund-raiser activities for drought relief.
At 919 Wines we are connected to the land, and our hearts go out to those who have been in drought for several years now. Farmers and their families put the welfare of their stock and the local wildlife ahead of their own well-being in many circumstances, and as their financial resources dwindle the communities around them suffer.
All the money raised will be donated to the CWA/NSW branch Drought Aid Program, where it will be distributed to families for their household bills. We have specifically selected this organisation as the money will stay within communities and supplement those families who are putting the welfare of animals first. For more information on the Drought Aid Program, go to https://www.cwaofnsw.org.au/droughtaid.html
- Option 1: Place a bid on our case of rare wine. All the money raised will go to the relief effort.
- Option 2: Purchase a case of wine on our web store. 20% of the purchase price will be donated to the relief effort.
