15 Nov A Case for a Case: Curing Pneumonia One Syrah At a Time
Today, November 12, is World Pneumonia Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about the deadly infection of the lungs that is still the leading cause of death in children under 5 years of age worldwide. As a tribute to World Pneumonia Day, concerned citizens around the world are wearing blue to show their support for the fight against pneumonia.
That brings us to the purpose of this article. This past Tuesday, I had the honor of attending “Pneumonia’s Last Syrah” presented by the GAVI campaign. Winery members from the Rhone Rangers gathered at Dogpatch Studios in San Francisco to raise awareness for pneumonia. For a mere $30, guests enjoyed unlimited pours of some of California’s best Syrahs as well as assortment of artisan cheeses. All the proceeds from the event went to the GAVI campaign.
