What it is:

  • COTM is a partnership between Vines & Rushes Winery and each organization to increase awareness of its purpose and raise funds.

  • Each COTM organization will receive 25% of Food Sales from their given Monday and any additional cash donations from that night.

  • Each organization will also have an opportunity to serve and interact with guests through front-end food service and share any marketing and communications material they may have.

Vines & Rushes serves Neapolitan style pizza from a wood-fired, brick oven.  With an oven temp of around 750 degrees, and a bake time of 90 seconds, the time from ordering to receiving your pizza is very short.  This allows for efficient food service in a spacious and family friendly environment.  

When:

  • Half of the Mondays each year (26) will have “Causes” and the remainder will be open for the normal pizza schedule

  • Pizza is available from 4pm - 8pm

  • The winery will be open on Mondays from Noon - 9pm.

Why:

Cause of the Mondays is our way of giving back to a region that has been a significant reason for our success as a winery. Each “Cause” has been selected by the staff at Vines & Rushes because of our appreciation for the unique impact each has on our community. We have worked to foster relationships with many businesses and organizations throughout the region. We support many local products in our winery, work with many local businesses and take pride in this opportunity to give back to our surrounding communities.

Schedule:

November 19: Berlin Food Pantry - Food Drive

  • The Pantry exists to address hunger and poverty in our community by offering nutritionally informed food and access to community resources in the love of Christ.

  • Although families can receive from us monthly, our records to Feeding America—the main source for our food and grocery items—are reported quarterly.  We currently serve approximately 1500 people in the Berlin area quarterly of which over 700 per quarter are seniors and minor children.

January 7: Green Lake Area Animal Shelter

  • With customer service as a primary focus, the Green Lake Area Animal Shelter seeks to enhance the lives of animals and people through education, adoption and compassion.

  • The vision of the Green Lake Area Animal Shelter is a community in which all pets are considered part of the family, are provided with compassionate care, companionship, training, and are spayed or neutered. We also seek to become the Green Lake area's primary facility for pet adoption, and to be considered a reliable, credible resource to address any animal issue.
