HAVERFORD, PA; March 30, 2011--Cline Cellars and Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) have announced a partnership that will provide LBBC with financial support to assist in the continuation of its mission of empowering all women affected by breast cancer.
Cline Cellars, producers of award-winning Rhone-style wines and Zinfandels, approached LBBC shortly after the New Year to discuss partnership opportunities. The winery, headquartered in Sonoma, CA, was particularly interested in the positive impact their support would have on the education and social services provided by LBBC to its constituency.
“One of the reasons we reached out to LBBC was because of the scope and breadth of the services it provides to women affected by breast cancer and their families,” said Nancy Cline, owner at Cline Cellars. “We were immediately taken by the nuanced care and attention to detail that LBBC brings to every program that carries its name – from national conferences to teleconferences to the LBBC website to the Survivors’ Helpline. LBBC provides these services at little to no cost - we know that our financial support to LBBC will allow them to continue their mission and to reinforce Cline’s solidarity and commitment to women affected by this disease.”
Jean Sachs, MSS, MLSP and CEO of Living Beyond Breast Cancer, said, “Cline Cellars will donate $25,000 to LBBC and will market the partnership on packaging, point-of-purchase display and advertising for the specialty wine, Cashmere, timed to correspond with the kick-off of the LBBC 20th Anniversary Celebration beginning in October. I can’t begin to describe how excited we are to have a company with the prestige and market respect of Cline Cellars as a partner for our 20th anniversary!”
