In the Spirit of Community

Many people don't know that Working Girl Wines support women and families across the country. Wherever the wines are sold we donate 2% of the sales to worthy causes. All the local $$ raised in our home town has already been promised, but in the spirit of community and the season we wanted to do a little extra for a specific family in need.

Purchase a Case (12 bottles) of Working Girl White or Handyman Red for $120 and we will donate $60 to the Calloway Family.

David and JoAnna Calloway moved their family of 4 from California to Sequim, WA. In July 1991. Both found jobs right away, David with Angeles Millwork and JoAnna with Sequim Safeway.

They have raised their family here, JoAnna started a small cottage business, The Lavender Peddler and her business has flourished over the past 5yrs. David started his own business, Calloway Tractor, and has worked with many local builders and homeowners in the area for the past 4yrs. Cayte, their daughter, now 26 is a hair stylist at Sassy Kat in Port Angeles and is expecting her first baby and JoAnna and David’s first grandchild in March 2009. Garret, their son, has worked in the family business, Calloway Tractor, along side his dad for the past 3yrs.

In August, David was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic Cancer and began chemotherapy immediately. The first series failed to work. David is now undergoing a new treatment of chemo that is leaving him weak and ill.

JoAnna has taken a leave of absence from her job at Sequim Safeway to stay home and take care of David. With no income, their medical and household bills steadily rising, and the threat that they could also loose their home, friends and family are trying to support the Callaway’s any way they can.

To order online put "Callaway Family" in the comments section of the order form or call the winery (360) 452-0160.
