Bounty Cellars building Reading Rooms

May 8th, 2011

Ron Pennington, owner of Bounty Cellars in Kelowna (www.bountycellars.com) has agreed to partner with us and PVO Mexico (www.contigopvo.org), a non-profit organization in Mexico City to build Reading Rooms in and around Mexico City.  PVO Mexico has as one of its emphases, fostering reading and literacy for children in isolated areas.  To date they have built reading rooms in rural areas and one in an orphanage.  Their next sites are one in another rural area and one in a pediatric hospital.  Bounty Cellars has designated a percentage of the profits from the sales of a new label of wine towards these Reading Rooms.  In addition, plans are in the works to throw a fund-raising gala event to also raise money for these reading centres.

To solidify the details of these projects and our relationship with PVO Mexico, Scott is going down to Mexico City in June to visit the already constructed sites, and to see where they propose to put the next two.  We are extremely excited at these new partnerships and the momentum they are creating with us as well as with our new partners!
