Woodchuck to honor Vermont cancer survivors

— The Vermont Hard Cider Company LLC, maker of Woodchuck Hard Cider, announced an addition to its lineup of bottled ciders. Woodchuck Pink is the latest in its Private Reserve line of innovative ciders. Pink brings recognition to the efforts of some local Vermonters, said company officials.

Dragonheart Vermont is a breast cancer survivor and support organization based in our home state. Dragonheart successfully started the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival in 2006 to raise money for cancer related non-profits.

Woodchuck Pink was created to honor and create awareness for the effort. A monetary donation of $50,000 was also made to further the programs of Survivorship NOW.

“Woodchuck Hard Cider’s donation will help to keep the wellness programs of Survivorship NOW free to all cancer survivors in our Vermont community,” said Dragonheart Board Member Linda Dyer. “And, free for many survivors, is the difference of being able to participate in the classes or not. It is another example of our Vermont community pulling together to help one another and we truly appreciate it.”
