Thank you to our Vermont, food, wine, and beer lovers,

We are excited to announce that our annual program, which supports the the UVM Cancer Center during the months of September and October, has officially raised over $20,000. This puts our total over $350,000 that has now been raised collectively over the last 16 years. We are hoping you will join us in 2019 in this fight against cancer here locally.

17 years ago we started this program with our friend Bob Conlon of Leunigs Bistro in downtown Burlington. Each year other establishments have joined in to help, ensuring our campaign continuous to grow. “Since my wife Betsy’s diagnosis and fantastic treatment 15 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.” – Bob Conlon
