Get a Free Glass of Wine on Big Day of Giving, May 6

PrintIt sounds like a great idea to us: On May 6, for 24 hours only, everyone everywhere is invited to make a cash contribution to the non-profit of their choice. It’s all about 24 hours of giving where you live through the web site,  For our region, the Placer County Community Foundation is coordinating the program.

It works like this:  go to and make your donation of $25 or more to the organization of your choice, and, according to the organizers, “Each donation will be matched on a prorated basis, thus making every donation go farther.  Then print out the receipt you are provided.

Bring the receipt into Carpe Vino between 5 p.m. and closing, and we’ll pour you a glass of either red or white wine (of our choice!).  Other businesses in our area are also providing incentives; go to for more details.

So step up and donate. . .you don’t need a reason, but I promise it will make you feel good!
