Buy some wine, help orphans in Haiti

“I just really want to do something. It breaks my heart to hear the stories,” Jill Domanico emailed us, referring to the devastation in Haiti. Today and Saturday Domanico Cellars will be raising money for Friends of Orphans Haiti relief fund. This is the same organization that the Shelter Lounge and Ballard Loft chose for their fundraiser on Wednesday night.

The winery will donate 10% of all proceeds from this weekend’s wine sales to the Friends of Orphans. The tasting room at 825 NW 49th St. will be open tonight from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. (Disclosure: Domanico Cellars is a sponsor of MyBallard.)

That's admirable and all… but you can donate directly to MercyCorps or others and be more effective.

I've been impressed by the number of Ballard merchants who are donating profit and proceeds for Haiti. Times are tight for all of these businesses, and to know that our little corner of the world cares enough about those so far away, is part of why I love living in Ballard!

They're wine is really good too, so if you're gonna buy wine this weekend, why not buy from them?
