Family Day & Wine Drive for Daisy Bennett
Monday, 17 Jan 2011
Day for Daisy is in support of Daisy Bennett, who has recently been diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA-type 1) at 3 months of age. All money raised will be donated directly to Daisy to assist with her anticipated medical bills.
SMA-type 1 is a progressive genetic neuro-muscular disorder. SMA affects Daisy’s ability to physically develop, but her mind is unaffected and she is as alert, curious and smiley as any other baby. Over the coming months, Daisy will require a high level of medical care and intervention, as simple tasks such as sucking, eating and breathing become more challenging. She may never meet any developmental milestones. Sadly there is no cure for SMA.
To find out more about SMA, please visit fightsmg.org.
The Singapore community has rallied around this family – and is now asking for your help!
There are two ways you can support the Bennetts – firstly, there is a family day on this Sunday – a Day for Daisy. This is a day to celebrate Daisy and have fun with fantastic free entertainment and activities for kids of all ages. Now is the time to have some fun and show the Bennett’s that they are surrounded by an amazing community here in Singapore. Buy your tickets online now (please note the event may be sold out so please pre-purchase your tickets to avoid disappointment).
Alternatively you can help out by buying wine! The people from UnderGround Wines have offered their help to Daisy, by providing access to beautiful NZ wines at a heavily discounted price to you. And ALL profits from the orders that come from this drive will go directly to Daisy. A big thank you to UnderGround Wines for their generosity in providing the wines and all administration in bringing them to you.

About Summerhouse Vineyard
Summerhouse Vineyard is in the famed New Zealand wine growing region of Marlborough. With a climate of long hot days, with cool nights and unique soil structure the area produces some of the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Summerhouse vineyard, which lies in the confluence of the Wairau and Waihopai Valleys in Marlborough.
“If you’re after a mixed case of premium boutique Marlborough wines you’d struggle to do better than one from Summerhouse. All their wines are ‘single vineyard’, meaning Heather and Meric Davies’ vineyard will be the only source of fruit used in the production. So with assured fruit quality and a small focused range their wines offer wonderful purity and an obvious reflection of the grape variety, region and vineyard.
And not only are the wines wonderful, they’ve been certified as sustainable winegrowers since 1998 – so you’re also doing the planet a favour drinking these wines”.
