FARRELL DISTRIBUTING ALONG WITH LEUNIG’S BISTRO & 16 OTHER LOCAL RESTAURANTS COME TOGETHER TO RAISE $39,022.00 FOR THE Breast Care Center at UVM Medical Center

$215,760 HAS BEEN RAISED OVER THE LAST 14 YEARS WITH THIS PROGRAM

 

South Burlington, VT — During the months of September and October, Farrell Distributing, along with 17 Vermont Restaurants raised $39,022.00 for the Breast Care Center at UVM Medical Center. Restaurants that participated were Leunigs Bistro, Windjammer, El Gato, Paulines, Knotty Shamrock, Shanty on the Shore, Skinny Pancake, Table 24, Scuffer Steak and Ale House, Arvads, Sweetwaters, Barkeaters, The Essex, Harrison’s and the Common Man.

 

This year’s annual campaign  was supported by every bottle of selected  Trinchero Family Estates wines purchased in the months of September and October. Participating restaurants and Farrell Distributing each donated $1.00 for every bottle sold  to our local breast care center. Also Long Trail Brewing has jumped in as well. Every pint of Long Trail sold during these months,  a .25cent donation was made as well.

 

From Bob Conlon, GM of Leunigs Bistro and founder of this fundraiser, “Since my wife Betsy’s diagnosis and fantastic treatment 11 years ago, we have tried to show our gratitude by supporting other local patients.  Leunigs does not have one guest or employee who doesn’t know someone who has dealt with breast cancer.  With the help of all our partners in the hospitality industry we provide enjoyment, comfort and community.  Raise a glass with us to salute successes against breast cancer”.

 

According to Ryan Chaffin, Director of Marketing for Farrell Distributing, “This annual campaign that we participate in, alongside some of the finest restaurants in the state of Vermont is so important to us at Farrell. It’s wonderful to see the passion and commitment our team puts into it and how we push to make it bigger and bigger each year”.

 

On November 11th, Farrell Distributing, members from  UVM Medical Center and all the participating restaurants gathered for a lunch at Leunigs Bistro to celebrate the great effort put  forth by all to present the official check  to UVM Medical Center!
