It appears that Wine 101's two locations in Raleigh and Wake Forest made a considerable amount of funds going towards the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation on Sept. 11.

The two stores combined for $621 that day on select glasses of wine and pints of beer, while raising a total of $1,485 for the foundation. Wine 101 owner Joe O'Keefe mentioned that a generous donor will also match the funds. With that being said, it looks like close to $3,000 will go to the foundation, which honors Siller, who put his life on the line to save others on 9/11.

Falls River Wine & Beer Club members were on hand at both locations, enjoying wine and beer while helping raise money for this patriotic organization. Bravo to the club members who came out that evening to support the club, the foundation and Wine 101.

Be sure to check out the Tunnel to Towers 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 8:30 a.m. at PNC Arena in Raleigh. Wine 101's O'Keefe and James Wood will be taking part in the run, as well as Jennifer and myself.
