FOR A CAUSE "O" Is for Opportunity A WASHINGTON WINE PAYS IT FORWARD by Meridith May / photos by Leigh Castelli "It's the power of wine that is the driving force for doing something good in the community," says Stacy Lill, founder and Brand Ambassador for O Wines, the Washington State label that provides scholarships to low income, capable young women so they can achieve their greatest potential through education. Lill's motivation and mission began in 2006 in Woodinville, Washington, not only to help improve the lives of young women through the scholarship program but also to establish the sales and marketing behind the brand. Sell more wine, raise more for scholarships. Stacy Lill had a vision to educate, motivate and give young women the confidence and opportunity to succeed through knowledge. From 2008 through 2012, O Wines awarded more than $125,000 in scholarship monies in grants of $500 and more. 44 / the tasting panel / may 2013
