Singing Water Vineyards, the esteemed Texas Hill Country Winery, is set to host its 14th Annual Freedom Day, an event dedicated to honoring veterans and their service to the nation. The event will commence at 3:00 PM on Saturday 11/11 with a heartfelt presentation marking the donation of 10% of annual sales from the winery’s renowned Freedom Red Wine Blend.
At 3:30 PM, the stage will come alive with the vibrant tunes of The Rad Band, who will be playing beloved hits from the 1990s era that resonated through MTV. This community celebration is open to the public and attendees are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and blankets for a cozy, enjoyable experience. The concert is slated to conclude around 7:00 PM.
Andrew Ivankovich, the CEO of Singing Water Vineyards, expressed his enthusiasm for the event, stating, “This is a cherished tradition for us, where we come together to pay tribute to our Real American Heroes – our Veterans. This year, we are especially delighted to extend our support to several non-profits dedicated to serving Veterans and active-duty members. It’s a testament to the spirit of community and gratitude.”
Dirk Soma, Associate Professor of Kauai Community College and the leader of the STRIVE program, an organization benefiting from this year’s donation, shared his excitement, saying, “Our partnership with Singing Water Vineyards has been incredibly impactful. Through their ongoing support, we have been able to assist over 24 veterans and their families attending our program, thanks to the proceeds from Freedom Wine sales. We look forward to raising funds for our upcoming cohort this summer, continuing our collaboration with Singing Water.”
