Local winery will donate to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of the Adirondacks through wine sales, raffle baskets, special events, and more for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October!


(Queensbury, NY) – Adirondack Winery, the North Country’s largest producer of craft wines, has announced a $20,000 fundraising goal for its 11th Annual “Drink Pink” breast cancer awareness fundraiser.

A portion of sales from all direct-to-consumer business units from September 15 through October 31 will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of the Adirondacks. Last year, with the support of its customers, employees, and friends, the winery raised over $20,000 for this incredible organization, bringing its total fundraising efforts over the past 11 years to over $100,000 donated. The accomplishment ranked Adirondack Winery the top fundraising company in the Northeast for Making Strides.

“In the eleven years that we have done this fundraiser, I have spoken with so many customers and employees who have had their lives directly impacted by breast cancer,” said Adirondack Winery President & Co-Owner Sasha Pardy. “Beyond giving us an opportunity to raise money for a very worthy cause, Drink Pink is our chance to rally behind those in our community who need our support, to let them know we’re in their corner.”

During its Drink Pink campaign, Adirondack Winery will offer a variety of specialty products that will help support the fundraiser. This includes its limited edition “Drink Pink Berry Breeze” wine. This special version of its popular mixed berry rosé is given a pink cap (Donated by Waterloo Container) and label only available during the fundraiser.

The winery is hosting numerous events at its Queensbury Tasting Room, from crafting to cocktail creation to comedy all in effort to support the cause. (CLICK HERE or see below for the list of events)

The winery is also selling raffle tickets throughout the campaign for many unique baskets and items totaling over $3,000 in value, including overnight stays, gift cards, wine, accessories, products and services graciously donated by other Lake George and other Capital Region businesses.

Adirondack Winery encourages everyone to show their support by attending the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of the Adirondacks walk at City Park in Glens Falls on Sunday, Oct. 22.

“The Adirondack Winery’s Drink Pink efforts has become a highlight I look forward to each year.” Nick Liporace, Senior Development Manager of ACS states. “Last year their dedication to the community through this cause earned them a regional award and helped us reach heights we had not seen since before the pandemic. I am inspired and in awe of their team as their staff partner but also as a caregiver and customer.”

Guests are encouraged to visit Adirondack Winery any day in the month of October to help support the fundraiser.
