More likely than not, each of us knows a friend, sister, aunt, mother, daughter, or grandmother that has been affected by breast cancer. The sad reality is that 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, this means that an estimated 268,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 62,930 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in 2019 alone.
With over 3.5 million cancer survivors in the U.S., it is imperative that we continue to fund trials, research, and fight to find a cure for this horrible disease. While October is known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ONEHOPE is proud to support this meaningful cause 365 days a year.
Gateway for Cancer Research
At Gateway for Cancer Research, their vision is to shape a world in which a cancer diagnosis is no longer feared. Their mission is to fund meaningful and breakthrough clinical trials worldwide that help people living with cancer to feel better, live longer and conquer cancer today.
This nonprofit works to fund clinical trials for a wide range of cancers, while using only the most cutting-edge research to help patients currently battling these diseases. Gateway invests in next generation patient-centric cancer research in order to drive transformational advances and breakthroughs in cancer treatment. With the help of ONEHOPE, 18,813 days of clinical trials have been funded to date.
Ways to give back with ONEHOPE
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we encourage you to help bring awareness and fund a cure with ONEHOPE. There are a number of ways you can get involved and support the cause 365 days a year, including through the purchase of our new limited edition pink glitter bottle.
Purchase with Purpose
Our award-winning 90 point Vintner California Chardonnay got a sparkly makeover this month, and we’re thrilled to offer this limited-edition bottle that supports Gateway for Cancer Research. In addition to our Vintner Chardonnay and new Pink Glitter Chardonnay, our mouthwatering Carneros Reserve Chardonnay also helps support this meaningful cause. We help ensure that an everyday purchase like wine has a deeper purpose. These bottles all help us fund clinical trials for women battling breast cancer, and with your help we can continue to increase our impact year after year.

Keep it simple: Make the party prep as easy as possible with a light cheese board and crackers to pair with your wines.
Share online: Once your tasting has concluded, we encourage you to keep the party going! Share the link to your event page with attendees and friends or family who weren’t able to make it. Let them know that they can still place an order and help support breast cancer awareness.
