Wine for World central kitchen
Auctions to Benefit Ukraine and Humanitarian Relief
Acker & Wine Societies Join to Raise Funds for World Central Kitchen
Acker is proud to announce that we have partnered with the prestigious wine societies Société des Amis du Champagne, Commanderie de Bordeaux, Commanderie des Costes du Rhône, Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Baillage de New York and Wine & Spirits Magazine to raise funds for Chef Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen (WCK), a non-profit responding to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. The organization is currently on the ground in Poland and Ukraine, feeding the millions displaced from the invasion of Ukraine, as well as those who remain in the country. The operation is expected to expand as the situation continues. Any wines donated from our clients and friends will be auctioned in our sales, featuring an indicia specific to the charity, encouraging bidders to engage generously. Acker will donate the full premium on every lot designated for the charity. For those wishing to contribute monetary donations, a fundraising page has also been established under the team name “Wine for WCK” at donate.wck.org/wineforwck
We would be honored if you would join us in support of Chef Andres’ organization. In a time of such dire need, this generous community can truly have an impact help from afar - one bottle, one lot, one meal at a time.
