LHR’s Wine Tasting Fundraiser Raises Money for the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center
Leventry, Haschak & Rodkey, LLC’s (LHR) second toast to “Clink, Drink and Think PINK!” (CDTP) held on Friday, April 11, 2014 at the Richland Township Fire Hall was even more successful than the organizers could have hoped for! Thanks to the growing interest the community has in this wine tasting event causing tickets to sell out weeks in advance and the additional financial support from e.map, Kongsberg, Whalley Charitable Trust and INCO Beverage, LHR was able to raise $12,428.56 for the patient care services at the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center (JMBCC) of Windber Medical Center. “It is an honor for our firm to host an event like Clink, Drink and Think PINK and to be able to give back to our community in a way that helps others. It is very encouraging to look back and see that we managed to raise over double the amount raised from our first event in 2013,” said Leventry, Haschak & Rodkey, LLC’s managing partner, Attorney Timothy Leventry.
CDTP raised money through ticket sales, monetary donations, a 50/50 ticket raffle, a live auction for a weekend at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and a basket raffle that was supported by local businesses. Patty Felton, Director of JMBCC, spoke to the attendees about how the money raised from the event will benefit patients of the JMBCC and how members of the community can benefit from the services offered at the JMBCC. Five wineries and four non-wine vendors participated in the event. Wine vendors included B&L Wine Cellars, Johnstown; Bee Kind Winery, Clearfield; Starr Hill Winery, Curwensville, Clearfield; Walnut Hill Winery, Blairsville; and Woody Lodge Winery, Ashville. Non-wine vendors included Batter Bake Shop, Johnstown; Lifestyle, Bedford; Nutten But Nuts, Johnsonburg, Elk County; and Sabika Jewelry, Johnstown. The night also included live entertainment from the musical duo Walt & Jackie.
LHR is very proud of its’ Caring and Sharing Committee for organizing such a successful event. We wish to thank everyone who helped to support CDTP this year. We can only hope the following years are just as successful!
