In September 2015, Mionetto launched ‘Pink Cork for the Cause’, a national campaign honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Aiming to drive awareness, support research, and celebrate survivors, the program is part of an ongoing and long-term initiative. After making $40,000 in donations last year, to four charities committed to fighting breast cancer and supporting survivors and their families, Mionetto is proud to continue the fight in 2016.
TO US, YOU’RE FAMILY…
Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. One in every eight women in the United States will be affected by this disease in her lifetime. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, death rates have been declining in recent decades, in part due to better screening, increased awareness and improving treatment options.
The Pink Cork for the Cause campaign represents our long-term commitment to the fight against this disease and to giving back to our family of loyal customers, many of whom are among those affected.

2015 CHARITIES AND WINNERS
“’Life changing’ is one way to describe the generous gift upon being selected Grand Prize winner in the Mionetto USA “Pink Cork for the Cause” campaign. Last year I had the privilege of donating $10,000 to the breast cancer charity of my choice! The very grateful ‘Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio’ became the award recipient. Having had experience within the nonprofit sector, as both volunteer and consultant, to be able to donate a sizable amount of money completes my wish list in recognizing the everyday hard efforts fundraising aid brings within our communities. So… start ‘Popping Pink Corks for Breast Cancer’!!! Mionetto Prosecco is ready to serve your cherished organization!”

Gateway to Hope is a breast cancer lifeline. Their mission is to secure comprehensive care and provide financial assistance for individuals in need diagnosed with or at high risk for developing breast cancer.
Cancer touches everyone: Family and friends, young and old, it doesn’t discriminate. Winning the Grand Prize of a $10,000 charitable donation allowed me to give to a cause close to my own heart and the many hearts of my neighbors. Donating to the Abington Health Foundation, I was able to give back locally to support my fellow community members, and their families, touched by cancer. Following the donation, I found a lump in my breast (thankfully benign) and went to Abington for care. Although no one knew I was the one who had been able to make the Mionetto contribution, every person I dealt with was patient, professional, and treated me with the respect that everyone deserves – they were amazing on every level. With the help of Mionetto, I am proud to support Abington and the many lives they change in the fight against cancer.

“I am a breast cancer survivor. I had a double mastectomy and six rounds of chemotherapy… I have always hoped that I would be able to someday give back monetarily to my community and be able to possibly help other women become breast cancer survivors. When I heard that I had won Mionetto’s ‘Pink Cork for the Cause’ giveaway, I knew that I wanted that money to go to women in my community. I was pleased that I got to choose which breast cancer organization would receive the $10,000 donation. To help my local breast cancer survivorship program was such an amazing gift for me. I know that this donation helped other women in my community. I want to thank Mionetto for helping me give back to my community and fulfilling a dream of mine.”
