Picnic hosting second ShelterBox fundraiser for Japan quake victims

March 22nd, 2011 · Comments

Picnic, 6801 Greenwood Ave. N., is hosting another benefit to raise money for ShelterBox USA, which is providing emergency housing and other essentials to victims of the recent Japan earthquake.

Picnic’s weekly Thursday night wine tasting this week features five wines from Bunnel Family Cellars. Your suggested donation of $20 goes straight to ShelterBox, and so does 10 percent of Picnic’s sales that day. The wine taste is from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Picnic’s ShelterBox fundraiser last week was a huge success, Co-Owner Anson Klock tells us, raising $2,000, so they decided to do it again. Each ShelterBox — which costs $1,000 — provides a tent, cooking equipment and other essentials for 10 people.
