It’s been a couple of years now since Postino WineCafé hit the ground running here in Tucson. Now, the restaurant wants to give back to the local community as they reach the two-year mark.
Back in 2020, Postino brought its mission to “Make People Feel Good” to the city when it opened its doors on the corner of Grant and Tucson Boulevard. Many have enjoyed its menu of bruschetta, shareables, and hand-picked wine and beer selections.
So, to celebrate Tucson’s specific location’s second year anniversary, Postino is teaming up with the University of Arizona’s Campus Pantry by donating proceeds from their anniversary promotion, the Wildcat Winedown, to the organization.
From Monday, May 9 – Sunday, May 15, those who stop by the restaurant can get $2 off favorite Arizona wines by the glass after 8 p.m. For every glass, $2 will be donated to Campus Pantry, which will use those funds to pick up grocery items for students and staff of the university.
“On average, a third of college students experience food insecurity at some point in their academic career and we’re excited to partner with Postino,” said Bridgette Nobbe, Coordinator of Campus Pantry.
In addition to the Wildcat Winedown $2 off deal, Postino is raffling off two annual memberships for their premier wine club, the Wine Cult — a cult that you’d be proud to tell your family about. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the Campus Pantry, too.
If you’d like to enter the contest and donate, you can do so online, and the prize winners will be drawn and contacted on Monday, May 16.
“Their anniversary promotion contributes to an environment of growth and encouragement supporting students in pursuit of higher education and a healthier lifestyle,” said Nobbe.
UA Campus Pantry’s goal is to reduce and destigmatize food insecurity in the Wildcat Community. Students and staff members are invited to visit their distribution events to grab important food staples at no cost with an active Cat Card.
