New York, NY and Napa, CA, May 1, 2017—CK Mondavi Family Vineyards announced today that over the past six years the family-owned wine brand has donated more than $165,000 to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a not-for-profit organization and national leader supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families. The 2016 CK Mondavi donation totaled $35,000. CK Mondavi also announced that their sixth annual donation program will run today through August, 2017, with the goal of raising another $50,000 for the charity.
“When you buy a bottle of CK Mondavi wine this summer you are supporting a program that is vital to supporting injured men and women of the American Armed Forces and their families,” said Marc Mondavi, Proprietor of CK Mondavi Family Vineyards. “My father, the late Peter Mondavi Sr., was a World War II veteran who believed in supporting our troops and our family is dedicated to continuing this tradition.”
CK Mondavi began their partnership with IFHF in 2012 and annually runs an in-store promotion to raise money and awareness for this organization. Consumers who support CK Mondavi are also supporting efforts to assist critically injured American soldiers and their families through the remarkable IFHF organization. This summer, CK Mondavi will donate up to a maximum of $50,000, to IFHF. Look for CK Mondavi displays that pay tribute to our heroes and are merchandised with valuable offers throughout the summer season.

About the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a national leader in supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families, has provided close to $200 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. In 2010 the Fund opened the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) to support the research, diagnosis, and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health (PH) conditions. In 2013 the Fund launched a new $100 million campaign to build nine “Intrepid Spirit” centers at major military bases around the country. These centers serve as satellites to the central NICoE facility and extend that care to more service members and veterans suffering TBI, PH conditions and related afflictions. Five Intrepid Spirit centers are already open and one more is under construction. www.fallenheroesfund.org
