Broken-earth winery owner Steve Wills is thrilled to win the first prize in the company’s “breakthrough” broken glass treatment program.
The winning glass is made with the proprietary “Toxic” glass and is currently being sold for $2,000 per bottle.
It was donated to the Wills’ home after the family’s home burned down in November, but it will be donated to a charity that helps people in need.
“The winner of the glass will be donating the glass to a local shelter that is helping people in their communities,” Wills said.
The Wills say they’ve been in touch with local shelters to arrange for the glass, but the winning glass will go directly to a community.
The family said they’ll donate the glass and any other broken glass they may find to a good cause.
Wills, a former fire chief, says he and his wife, Heather, were given permission to donate the winery to the fire department when it burned down.
He said they’re very proud of the work that the team is doing in the community.
“We were very fortunate to get that gift,” Will said.
“I feel like we have some special people here who are doing amazing work.”
The Wamsons say they will donate any glass that doesn’t meet the requirements for the program.
They’ll donate all glass that isn’t broken, which means no glass that’s broken in any way.
Willing said he’s also donating all of the broken glass that he and the team have.
“My wife and I are trying to get this broken glass in as quickly as possible,” Wampons said.
He’s hoping to collect donations by the end of the month.
