The Habitat for Humanity Niagara home build is officially underway and we had the honour of spending a day on site to help frame the basement!
In The Community
At Diamond Estates Winery, we love being active in our community. These are just a few of the wonderful organizations and causes that we've had the pleasure of working with over the years.
True Patriot Love Foundation | 1914 Honour & Valour
True Patriot Love Foundation (TPL) is a national charity that honours the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans and their families in both times of peace and conflict. TPL accomplishes its mission by funding unique programs and innovative research in the areas of mental health, physical rehabilitation, family support and veteran transition. TPL also seeks to change the conversation about the challenges facing today’s military community by leading ambitious expeditions and hosting international symposia.
In support of the True Patriot Love Foundation, Diamond Estates has released a new series of wines, 1914 Honour and Valour. Diamond Estates will be donating 50¢ from every bottle of 1914 Honour and 1914 Valour sold through the LCBO and other provincial liquor boards as well as Diamond’s Winery Boutique, to the True Patriot Love Foundation. Diamond Estates goal is to raise $50,000 with this project.
UPDATE: On May 6th, 2015, Diamond Estates presented the first cheque to the True Patriot Love Foundation worth $23,885!
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is founded on the belief that decent, affordable housing is a basic human right. Habitat for Humanity Niagara is a team of enthusiastic volunteers, community partners and staff, guided by their values and committed to transforming the lives of people in need through affordable housing. Through generous support from individuals, businesses, and community groups, Habitat for Humanity helps families in Niagara improve their lives through home ownership.Between 2010 -2016, Diamond Estates held several annual fundraisers to raise over $100,000 towards a Habitat home build in the Niagara Falls, including an annual Golf Tournament, Charity BBQ and Woodworking workshops.
Ride to Conquer Cancer
The Ride to Conquer Cancer is an annual charity fundraiser held in various locations across Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. It is organized as a non-competitive cycling event that sees thousands of riders travel over 200 kilometres (120 mi) over two days.
Between 2009-2015, EastDell Estates was the official wine partner of the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. The Ride has emerged as Canada’s most successful cycling fundraiser and the funds raised through The Ride to Conquer Cancer will deliver breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at The Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research hospitals in the world.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us through winery events, donations and our annual golf tournament to reach our goal of $100,000! We are now able to fulfill our commitment of building a house for a family in need.
