Local Charities Thank You for Drinking

Ken Wright Cellars!

Ken Wright Cellars is a company with purpose. We are determined not only to make quality Pinot Noir that connects people to place, but we are committed to connecting to the people and place in which we live. When Ken Wright Cellars moved to the small rural community of Carlton, Oregon in 1994, it became the first winery in a town built on traditional agriculture. Most of the families in Carlton had been living and working the land here for generations; the Wright’s were “the new kids on the block.” What Ken and Karen admired most about Carlton was that it was a community in the true sense of the word, a place where people with a rich history of supporting one another working toward a greater good. To become a part of this rich network of people, the Wrights needed to build a business and produce a product that could be defined by the same values. Now, with all the members of Ken Wright Cellars deeply rooted in community, rejoice in knowing that with every bottle, glass or taste you enjoy of Ken Wright Cellars, you are helping to provide much needed support to not only the families of Carlton and Yamhill, but well beyond.  Your support allows the substantial volunteerism and charitable giving of Ken Wright Cellars. This makes you a significant part of our Ken Wright Cellars family, and we thank you!

Starting in 2018, Ken Wright Cellars launched a new charity donation program, established to enable each of our team members an opportunity to select and support an organization with which they have a personal connection. Each quarter a different charitable organization will be featured. This quarter, so many of the Ken Wright Cellars team wanted to benefit this charity, that we all united to support With Courage. 20% of the sales of our monthly featured vineyard will be donated to With Courage!

Why did Ken Wright Cellars select Homeward Bound Pets as this quarter's designated charity?

Cancer. It touches many of us directly and indirectly. Not everyone has nearby friends or family who have the time and energy to care for someone going through the trauma of discovering they have cancer, driving to oncology appointments and enduring the effects of chemo and radiation. The battle is real, and it's hard to do it alone.

A two-time breast cancer survivor and Carlton local, Caitlin Sticka, decided to make a difference for local Yamhill County residents who are in treatment for breast cancer. Caitlin launched With Courage in 2016 to provide a support group, personal mentors and financial resources. She works closely with Willamette Valley Cancer Foundation and Seeds of Hope to ensure that all three of the area nonprofits serving women impacted by breast cancer work effectively together, not duplicating efforts and maximizing the support to our communtiy.

Since 2017, With Courage has given 31 care packages worth of $200 each and provided assistance to women and their families in many different ways including; yard maintenance, installation of a garage shelving unit, tires, and family outings. She also developed a support group that meets monthly that is free to attendees. This spring, With Courage sponsored it's 1st Annual Walk with Courage Fashion Show, in addition to their annual fall Pink Ribbon event.

Ken and Karen Wright and Ken Wright Cellars proudly support With Courage by donationg 20% of the proceeds from our featured monthly vineyard. 

Thank you for supporting this worthwhile cause.
