SWRA Online Fundraising Auction

This is a worthy fundraising event for our affiliate member, the Specialty Wine Retailers Association:

Just a quick note to let you know that the first ever Specialty Wine Retailers Association "Wine Without Borders" fundraising auction is now underway at

You can see the lots and register to bid by going here:

This first ever SWRA fundraising auction is meant to bring attention to the issue of free trade in wine and the work SWRA is doing to overturn protectionist laws that ban consumers and wine merchants for buying and selling wine, and to raise funds to help in that effort.

You can help this effort by doing any of the following:

1. Head to, bid on and pick up some AMAZING wines for your self via the auction.
2. Forward this email any and all of your wine loving friends and colleagues may also want to bid.
3. Put the link to the auction on your web page along with the logo that is attached.
4. Put a link to the auction on your Facebook page.
5. Help promote the auction by "tweeting out" the web address on Twitter and telling your followers about it.
6. Write about this movement and auction on your blog if you maintain one.

The online auction at WineCommune runs through November 19th.

If you are at all interested in the ongoing effort to open up states to allow the direct shipment of wine, and if you've ever wondered what you can do (besides making calls to lawmakers) to help the effort, then you have a chance now.

Don't hesitate to call or write me if you have any questions. And thank you very much for your help and support.
