Vines of Life Walk

Raise a Toast, Raise Awareness

Sunday, October 1, 2017

Laurita Winery, located in New Egypt, NJ, one of the most unique wineries you will ever visit host memorable events such as the Vines of Life Walk that guests thoroughly enjoy. Folks pledge to walk in honor of their grandmother, mother, aunt, sister or friend. They gather to support the fighters and honor the taken. There are few people who haven’t been touched by breast cancer in some way so it is a wonderful way to help raise money for such a worthy cause.

It’s not very often you see a fundraiser where folks walk through a vineyard listening to live music and enjoying wine and cheese tastings, much less be served by breast cancer survivors. Vines of Life Walk has been fundraising to help those with breast cancer every year since 2010.  From humble beginnings with few participants, the race has grown to host nearly 800 guests, raising thousands of dollars to further the mission of providing early detection services for women.  Laurita Winery has generously donated over $50,000 to this worthy cause thus far.

During the day, many folks stopped by our information table at the walk and shared stories about how their lives had been touched by breast cancer and why and who they were walking for. Laurita is proud to support Mary’s Place by the Sea, located in Ocean Grove, NJ, providing a place for women with cancer to heal: mind, body and soul.

Mary’s Place by the Sea is a respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer.  We provide services that complement their medical treatment, including oncology massages, nutrition education, individual counseling, Reiki, guided meditation and yoga.  Mary’s Place by the Sea is not a medical facility with medical staff.  We offer integrative services to women with cancer and provide rest and support during this challenging time in their lives. They are empowered with knowledge that will aid them on their road to healing. Since 2009, over 5,600 women with cancer have become “guests” of Mary’s Place by the Sea.

Laurita Winery is proud to help raise awareness for breast cancer and give HOPE to others! Registration is $25 and includes a t-shirt, pink wine glass and a wine and cheese tasting in the vineyard.
