After more than 82 years of serving Florida family celebrations, we’ve made a lot of unforgettable friends along the way who are giving back.
From the amazing kids at United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Florida, to the furry acquaintances at Canine Companions for Independence, and many more, we’ve built impactful partnerships between our stores, the brands we sell and the charitable organizations we support.
Our history is rooted in charitable giving. We started out as a charitable company and always will be a charitable company. “We’re fortunate to partner with so many companies that share our belief in charitable giving and want to provide opportunities in the communities we serve throughout the state.” said Sean Kelly, ABC’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Our guests recognize our commitment to giving back and they support our efforts because they know we’re directing their donations to trusted organizations making a difference.”
In the coming months, we have a few special partnerships and we would appreciate your help. We’ve taken care of the heavy lifting. All guests need to do is purchase a bottle from one of our partners. Check them out here:
CCI + Tito’s Handmade Vodka
An important part of Tito’s Handmade Vodka’s story begins with their passion for animals. Bert “Tito” Beveridge always had a dream to commit to rescuing and protecting the animals that have come into our lives. We’ve partnered with Tito’s Vodka for Dog People to raise awareness and funds for Canine Companions for Independence. $1 will be donated to Canine Companions for Independence for every bottle of Tito’s Handmade Vodka purchased at ABC Fine Wine & Spirits.
Hurricane Relief + Cruzan Rum
As The Island Spirit Fund puts it, they are "dedicated to awakening the Island Spirit across the United States to ensure that no one weathers a storm alone. The Fund pursues this vision through relief efforts across the U.S. and its territories, helping rebuild and renew communities impacted by storms of all kinds. In 2018, grants from the Island Spirit Fund will be focused on awakening the Island Spirit on St. Croix in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, building resilience for future storms.
You can help support the relief by enjoying a bottle of this Sourced & Certified rum. Every bottle of 1.75L Cruzan sold (any flavor), will automatically donate $1. Visit islandspiritfund.org for more information.
UCP + New Amsterdam Vodka
ABC’s connection to UCP started in the 80s when Jack Holloway, founder of ABC, worked with UCP to expand their campus in Orlando. One of Holloway’s sons was born with cerebral palsy, and at that time, children with disabilities had few opportunities for specialized learning. With Holloway’s help and ABC’s continued support, UCP has become the expert source for growth and development for children with special needs and developmental delays, including Down syndrome, autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy and speech and hearing delays. UCP offers tuition-free education, therapy and support tailored to fit the needs of the children and adults who attend any of the seven campuses in Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. Each year, we make it our goal to donate time and money to this incredible organization. This year, we’re getting a little help from these brands. All you have to do is purchase any of these 1.75L bottles and 50 cents will be donated to the cause.
