Think Pink Thursdays- Rosé to Benefit BAYS and Tipping Point Charities March 31, 2016

If you love rosé wine, you won't want to miss this!

Beginning on Thursday, April 7th and running for SIX MONTHS, we are hosting “Think Pink Thursdays.” Let the rosé flow, have a great time, not only with your friends, but with those around you, and do a little good for local charities at the same time. We're teaming up with our friends at IfOnly to host a weekly rosé soirée by which certain proceeds will benefit two of our favorite local charities, Bay Area Young Survivors (BAYS) and the Tipping Point Community (please click charity links to learn more).

Here's how it works...
