Riverwalk District Wine Walk Saturday April 16

RENO, NV - April 11, 2011 - The Riverwalk District Wine Walk on Saturday, April 16 from 2 to 5 p.m. in downtown Reno will benefit the C*A*R*E* Chest of Sierra Nevada.

The Riverwalk Merchants Association presents wine walks every month along the Truckee River and on neighboring streets in the Riverwalk District.

A charity benefits from a portion of Wine Walk proceeds monthly. The April Wine Walk charity is the C*A*R*E* Chest of Sierra Nevada, the C*A*R*E* Chest provides medical supplies to people in our own community who are struggling to afford health care.

The C*A*R*E* Chest assisted over 8,900 Nevadans last year who required medical assistance. C*A*R*E* Chest of Sierra Nevada is a Northern Nevada 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides equipment & supplies free of charge to people who qualify for services. During 2008, 8561 LOCAL children & adults were helped every month. Funding for these vital programs is raised locally through grants, corporate partners, individual donations, and special FUNdraising events.

A portion of the proceeds earned from the April 16th wine walk will be generously donated to the C*A*R*E* Chest to help cover the expenses of medical equipment, diabetes medication and other resources for our community.
