Putah Creek Winery Announces 2016 Give Back Tuesday Recipients
Putah Creek Winery Has Encouraged Buying Wine With a Purpose Every Tuesday For a Year
DAVIS, CA—Local Davis-based winery, Putah Creek Winery, hosted fundraisers for eleven non-profit organizations at their Downtown Davis tasting room every Tuesday in 2015. In January 2015, the winery joined the national #GivingTuesday movement by launching their own Give Back Tuesday initiative. Worldwide #GivingTuesday will be December 1st, 2015.
Putah Creek Winery celebrates #GivingTuesday by donating 15% of sales every Tuesday in their Davis tasting room to a selected non-profit of the month. The non-profit for the month of December will be Suicide Prevention and Crisis Services of Yolo County. The mission of SPYC is to provide crisis prevention and intervention, education, and community outreach services to the residents of our community.
