Social Responsibility

In the spirit of a United Food & Beverage Industry, all of us at Olé & Obrigado would like to thank you for helping us raise over $65,000 for restaurant worker relief funds. The Restaurant Relief Pack was a retail program we launched to donate 50% of the profits from the sales of select wines from March 2020 through May 2020 to national (Restaurant Workers' Community Foundation) and local organizations providing direct relief to hospitality employees.

 

 

Liquid Geography Rosé is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to everyone that has helped our niche import company of Iberian wines since its foundation in 1999.
 

Since 2013, we have raised over $270,000 for various foundations by donating 100% of the profits from our Liquid Geography Mencia wine. Our goal with this wine is to achieve $1 million in total donations by 2025.
 

Currently, through Liquid Geography Mencia, we support the TJ Martell Foundation, the South Bronx Educational Foundation and Wheeling Forward. With Liquid Geography Garnarcha, we support with 50% of our profits to the World Central Kitchen.  Learn more about these foundations below.
 

To help us make a difference, please contact us at oleobrigado@oleobrigado.com to purchase Liquid Geography. Join us in bringing hope through wine to these wonderful causes!

 

 


T.J. Martell Foundation

The T.J. Martell Foundation is the music industry’s leading non-profit that funds innovative medical research focused on finding treatments and cures for cancer. The Foundation was founded in 1975 by music industry executive Tony Martell and his colleagues in loving memory of his son T.J., who died of leukemia. Supporting early-stage translational research projects, which otherwise might not be funded, the organization has provided more than $280 million for research at eight flagship hospitals in the United States. The T.J. Martell Foundation also encourages their funded scientists to leverage their funding with other larger funding sources, such as the National Institute of Health and the National Cancer Institute www.tjmartell.org

South Bronx Educational Foundation (SBEF)

Since 1988, the South Bronx Educational Foundation (SBEF) has helped at-risk students in the Bronx achieve their academic and personal potential. Students engage in tutoring, leadership clubs, SAT and high school exam prep, job skill training and summer programs. 100% of the student participants complete their high school education, and 98% go on to college. Keys to SBEF’s success are personalized mentoring and close collaboration between staff, volunteers and families, as reflected in SBEF’s motto, “Together We Can.” www.sbef.org
