Holiday Wine Tasting

Oh what a night! Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Holiday Wine Tasting. The food was delectable, the wine was flowing, and lots of fun was had by all. The funds raised support Bridges to Learning as we fulfill our mission to help the children in Vietnam who desperately need our help. Hopefully everyone is enjoying the wine they ordered, as it was a record-breaking wine sale with sales of over $6,000! THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN WITHOUT THESE WONDERFUL PEOPLE. A special thank you goes to:

  • Joe and Kate Campo from South Lyndale Liquors
  • JJoe Kotnik from Worldwide Cellars and Rootstock Wine Co.
  • JSally Whitham from Classic Provisions.

Donating vs Sponsoring

A brief explanation is in order, some people ask me what is the difference between donating to Bridges to Learning and "Sponsoring a Child" at Anh Linh? Donations go to the General Fund unless specified for a certain program, "The Breakfast Fund" or "EyeCare" for example. Sponsoring a child enables the sponsor to directly impact the life of a particular child at Anh Linh by becoming their sponsor. When you sponsor a child 100% of your sponsorship goes to the school to directly impact your sponsored child at Anh Linh. You can read more about sponsorship by clicking the icon, "Sponsor a Child", in the picture above right.
