The Wine and Spirit Wholesalers of Massachusetts are proud to support so many impactful non-profit organizations throughout our Commonwealth, all of which are working to strengthen our communities.
Through the efforts of our enthusiastic employees and member companies, we are dedicated to giving our volunteer time and important contributions so that we share our success within the communities we live and work in.
Example of our involvement in the community:
Pan Mass Challenge: Ruby Wines is a long-standing supporter, with nine riders participating in last year’s race. Team Ruby has raised more than $605,000 for Dana Farber to date. Martignetti Companies is heavily involved in raising money for Dana Farber through the Pan Mass Challenge and has been for the past 18 years, raising more than $2 million for the cause with 40 of our employees taking part in the ride.
Ted Rubin Memorial Golf Tournament: In memory of our founder, Ruby Wines’ annual golf tournament has raised more than $900,000
Mass. Restaurant Association Education Foundation: Horizon Beverage established an $80,000 scholarship fund to offset the costs of a culinary arts education for aspiring restaurant professionals.
Ride, Wine and Dine: Martignetti Companies hosts an auction each year called Ride, Wine and Dine to continue the fundraising efforts for Dana Farber and the Pan Mass Challenge. This year the Ride, Wine and Dine Wine Auction will be held on Friday, October 21st, 2016 in the Wharf Room at the Boston Harbor Hotel.
Movember at Horizon: In November employees grew mustaches and raised funds for the Movember Foundation, who is committed to changing the face of men’s health.
Employees raised over $12,190 and Horizon Beverage Company matched the donation, contributing $24,380 to the Movember Foundation.
