LAPORTE — The Door Coffeehouse was recently nominated by Forestedge Winery in Laporte to receive a donation from the Raise A Glass Foundation.
The Raise A Glass Foundation was created to help support charities around the world.
"We know that many nonprofit organizations struggle to gather donated items for their galas and fundraisers," a release said. "By hosting international wine, beer, cider and spirit competitions, the Raise A Glass Foundation is able to provide charities with award-winning wines, beers, ciders and spirits for use in their fundraising events."
To date, the organization has donated over $1,250,000 in award-winning products to charities.
Three wineries were selected at the Great American International Wine Competition held in April out of over 300 around the world that entered. Each of these three wineries selected a charity of their choice to receive a $500 donation in their name from the Raise A Glass Foundation, the release said.
Forestedge Winery was one of those three wineries and they selected The Door Coffeehouse as their designated charity.
The Door is a coffee shop and homeless shelter in one located in Laporte.
