Proceeds Will Benefit Three Charities
FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Beginning tomorrow, American Airlines customers traveling in First Class or Business Class onboard transcontinental or Hawaii flights can sip a glass of wine for a good cause. American will offer ONEHOPE wines inflight from October through December resulting in a donation to charity for each purchase.
"Offering ONEHOPE wines inflight allows American Airlines to bring people together for three worthy causes, while at the same time, providing our customers with the finest wine possible," said John Tiliacos, Managing Director - Onboard Products.
ONEHOPE wine selections and their beneficiaries will change monthly as part of American's complimentary wine menu available in First and Business Class.
Pink Ribbon Chardonnay will be featured throughout October, and ONEHOPE will donate 50 percent of the profits generated from the bottles of Chardonnay purchased by American to breast cancer research.
During November, sipping Yellow Ribbon Red Zinfandel will support our troops. ONEHOPE will donate 50 percent of the profits generated from the bottles of Red Zinfandel purchased by American to Snowball Express, a charity for the children of our fallen military heroes. American Airlines is the official airline of Snowball Express.
In December's spirit of holiday giving, ONEHOPE will plant a tree to mitigate effects of climate change for every bottle of Sauvignon Blanc enjoyed onboard American.
Additionally, ONEHOPE wines are available for purchase online as part of ONEHOPE's 20/20 Give Back program. American Airlines customers who visit www.onehopewine.com/american to purchase ONEHOPE wines will receive a 20 percent discount on the purchase price and ONEHOPE will donate 20 percent of the profits to charity.
