Drink Pink for a Purpose

October is Breast Cancer awareness month. The color pink is displayed throughout neighborhoods. It’s shown as national and local sports teams rally with pink uniforms and ribbons. Walks and runs raise money for support while industries and businesses nationwide stand behind finding a cure. The wine and spirits industry is also supportive in their role of Breast Cancer awareness and Bremer’s Wine and Liquor is proud to carry wines that are being “corked” for a cause and a cure.
