Jeff Lucas, general manager of Cascadia Liquor store understands the importance of giving back to the community.

“We realize that everyone needs healthcare and we like the community connection with St. Joseph’s Hospital,” said Lucas.

To celebrate the Cascadia opening in October, the store planned to donate one dollar for every bottle of Terra Andina wine to St. Joseph’s.

“Our staff, St. Joseph’s staff and the community were very supportive of this four month initiative. We have been exceptionally pleased with our efforts and are glad to be able to make this contribution to such a fantastic community organization,”  added Lucas.

Due to the success of the initiative, Cascadia will participate in another, slightly different fundraiser for the Foundtion again in June and July as part of the 100 year birthday celebration of St. Joseph’s. The program will direct bottle return money back to the Foundation.
