For $80 per ticket, or $600 for a group of 8, you can enjoy a 3 course lunch with unlimited wines: rare and exclusive wines offered by their generous sponsors. The meal will be followed by a wine tasting led by Thomas Hardy who will present his latest vintages. All money raised will be donated to the association Pink Hope.

 

Pink Hope and why Bottli chose them

Pink Hope is a hub welcoming and helping women who are at risk of and are victims of breast or ovarian cancer. It promotes screening and raises funds to make examinations free or less expensive.

 

Bottli chose this association because the Mums of Nathalie, the director of Bottli and of Florence, the director of commercial development, have both been struck by breast cancer. Nathalie’s mother died a few years ago and Florence’s was diagnosed a few months ago but is being well-treated for now.
