J. Lohr Vineyards and Wines is continuing its Touching 2000 Lives campaign to fund mammograms for women in need for a third year. In partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the company will donate $2 dollars from the sale of every bottle of any vintage of J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc to fund mammograms for women who would otherwise be unable to afford them. The program has funded more than 2,000 mammograms to date.
