This November, Your Wine Purchases Will Help Gold Star Families

Ferrari-Carano and Banshee Pledge Donations to the Folded Flag Foundation.

There are many ways remember and honor the service and sacrifices of our Veterans. One of these is by assisting the loved ones of fallen military, known as Gold Star families. The Folded Flag Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to raising educational scholarship funds for the surviving spouses and children of United States military and government personnel who died defending our country.

Too often, immediate surviving family members of fallen military find themselves struggling financially in the wake of tragedy. There’s a limit to existing governmental support that Folded Flag continually seeks to expand. Folded Flag not only helps raise money for Gold Star children to pay for K-12 and college expenses, but also for Gold Star spouses who suddenly find themselves needing to further their own education, expanding their career options to better provide for their children.

In honor of this Veterans Day, two Foley family wineries—Ferrari-Carano and Banshee—are stepping up for the cause. For the whole month of November, two dollars from every bottle of Ferrari-Carano or Banshee wine purchased will be donated to Folded Flag. This applies to all bottles of wine whether they’re sold in stores, at restaurants, or here online at the Foley Food & Wine Society website.

Purchases of these wines and others go a long way towards contributing to Folded Flag’s cause. In fact, one of the great aspects about Folded Flag is that unlike many other non-profits, all administrative costs towards operating the foundation are funded by sponsors and corporate underwriters, meaning that all donations made to Folded Flag by everyday donors like you go 100% directly towards educational costs for military family members.

The impact Folded Flag makes for the thousands of Gold Star family members in need is incalculable. If you’re moved to learn more, and to donate beyond the purchase of a Ferrari-Carano or Banshee wine, please visit their website at
