As many of you are aware, the Burning Hawk wine team has waged an all out vino-sipping, raptor-conserving and environmental-educating fundraising effort over recent weeks. From the beginning of March until mid-April we worked in collaboration with Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Raptor Program to raise awareness and funds for their important work.Beginning with a live auction of inaugural vintages of Burning Hawk wines and following-up with an educational and cause-marketing effort we are happy to report that $900 has been raised by cause-minded wine lovers. Our entire team at Burning Hawk salutes the staff and volunteers at the RMRP for their fundamentally important work. And together we thank you our “Causetomers” for aligning your wine purchases with your values.
We also look forward to tracking the progress of the Golden Eagle in the RMRP’s care. This eagle, which like our original hawk was electrocuted by powerlines, has made remarkable progress. There is a good chance that it will be released this summer to fly again in the future. But the injuries and trauma it has experienced have been great and it is not out of the woods (or back into the woods) yet.
