PINKtober: Pink Rabbit Corkscrew

It's officially PINKtober and National Breast Cancer Awareness month is prevalent all around the nation, and certainly in the wine world. For those of you who saw my post on Examiner last month, you'll know that I've personally put effort to lend a hand and fight the cause through raising money for organizations, like Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

But making a difference can now be as simple as raising your glass. So, we here at WinoBee want to give you the opportunity to share the pink and drink the pink! Throughout the month of October, not only will we be sharing some of the best wine options that champion the cause, we'll give you exclusive opportunities to take some of those items home yourself. Simply look for the posts titled "PINKtober" for your chance to win cool (and worthy) pink wine swag.
Let's kick it off (and kick cancer) with my absolute favorite wine tool of all time. You know it, you love it (and if you don't love it, you soon will)... the Rabbit! The Rabbit corkscrew by Metrokane is not just known for its precise design and ease of use, but their Pink Rabbit also helps the fight against breast cancer with 5% of its proceeds donated to the Sloan-Kettering Memorial Center in New York City. Cost: $50

TO WIN: SIMPLY POST A COMMENT IDENTIFYING WHAT TYPE OF "PINK" WINE YOU WOULD UNCORK IF YOU WON THIS CORKSCREW. WANT AN EXTRA OPPORTUNITY TO WIN? TWEET OUT THIS GIVEAWAY USING HASHTAG #BEEPINK. WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN ON NOVEMBER 1st. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SO WE CAN CONTACT YOU IN CASE YOU ARE SELECTED.

I hear FAT bastard Wine is "pink" every year, so I'd open a bottle of that! Or anything else; this bunny looks awesome!

I'll be toasting BC Awareness with Cleavage Creek Wines, which was purchased by California farmer Budge Brown after he lost his wife of 48 years to breast cancer. Ten percent of Cleavage Creek’s gross wine sales go to breast cancer research, and a breast cancer survivor is featured on each label. Since its first release in October 2007, Cleavage Creek has contributed more than $55,000 to breast cancer research.

J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, because they are donating $2.00 from every bottle sold, and the money will go for 500 women to receive mammograms. Early Detection ladies! Feel your B**bies!
