We are excited to announce our annual program that supports the UVM Cancer Center during the months of September and October has raised over $13,000. We are proud to report that over $413,000 has been raised collectively over the last 20 years.

This fundraiser, born from Leunig’s Bistro in downtown Burlington 19 years ago, put in place to thank the UVM Cancer Center for its incredible care, and as a commitment to our community, has continued to bring in new partners each year. Each September and October we raise a glass of wine, or a cold, locally brewed Vermont beer, to help bring awareness to our participating retailers, while raising these important funds. Thank you Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, and von Trapp Brewing for joining us once again. 

Important Information Below From The UVM Cancer Center. 

“The University of Vermont Cancer Center is the only academic cancer center in our region—providing compassionate and cutting-edge treatment to our community and advancing the prevention, treatment, and survivorship of cancer through research. The pandemic has not changed this. What has changed are the quick adaptations to new and improved telehealth practices, advanced safety protocols in the clinics, as well as virtual outreach, education, and support programs.”

“Patients and staff report feeling safe and that access has improved with the expansion of remote appointments and support programs. Cancer care has not missed a beat and important cancer research has continued to move forward.”

“Your support helps ensure that vital patient and community education programs, innovative research and high-quality, local care continue. Clinicians, social workers, researchers, staff, and especially patients, thank you for continuing to support the important work happening every day at the UVM Cancer Center to reduce the burden of cancer here in our community and everywhere. We are proud to be supporting the UVM Cancer Center and are grateful to have you join us!”

We understand the current landscape potentially makes it challenging for some as we celebrate our 20th year within this partnership. But, We stand by our culinary and retail partners, and the Cancer Center, so Farrell Distributing will continue to make it’s dollar donation this year to help all parties. If you wish to participate in supporting, simply visit one of the restaurant partners and enjoy a selected glass/bottle of wine, or a highlighted Vermont Lager. We feel passionately about continuing, and celebrating 20 years, and we thank you for supporting this important fundraiser during the months of September and October.

This annual campaign that we participate in, alongside our culinary partners in the state of Vermont is so important to us at Farrell Distributing. We celebrate this partnership passionately, and fully commit to this fundraiser each year; it means a tremendous amount to all of us here.
