We are so excited to partner with Cole’s Closet this Holiday Season. Each year Cole’s Closet donates numerous items to hospitals that will ensure a more comfortable hospital stay for all children. In addition, they donate thousands of new toys, books, gift cards and care packages to seriously ill children and their families. Cole’s Closet was created in 2002 by Ellen and Steve Tomczyk after they lost their six-month old son to an undiagnosed disease. The Tomczyk’s spent four months in and out of area hospitals, and witnessed firsthand the anxiety and fear families face when a child is hospitalized. Ellen and Steve wanted to do something to ease their own pain and to help other families in similar situations.
If you are attending one of our Santa Brunch events or visiting the winery in December and you would like to participate, it’s as simple as bringing a toy to donate. Cole’s Closet accepts new toys for all ages. When choosing toys, remember most of these children spend a large portion of their day in bed (they are in great need of Toys for infants and teens). All toys will be given to children at hospitals in the DMV Area. In exchange for your toy donation, you will be entered into our holiday raffle giveaway!
Holiday Raffle prizes include:
- (2) Complimentary Tickets to our New Year’s Eve Event ($250 value)
- Complimentary Premier Tastings
- $25 Winery Gift Cards
- Complimentary Desserts and more!
Holiday raffle winners will be pulled on December 15th; winners will be contacted through email! To learn more about this wonderful non-profit organization, please visit their website. Thank you for your help in spreading cheer this holiday season.
