At Kerr Cellars, we live our lives with purpose. Cristie is a prominent breast cancer activist, philanthropist, and spokesperson. In 2006, she received the prestigious Komen Award in honor of her personal contribution and commitment to the fight against breast cancer. We also encourage each other and our staff to support causes they care about too. We believe in the responsibility to support our community, in both small and large ways. That’s why we participate in a number of philanthropic events each year and sustain our own charitable initiatives. Together we can make the world a better place!
Cristie’s vision for Curvature Wines developed from a strong desire to support other women and a deep love of wine. She started her own wine venture to help raise funds for breast cancer research. Curvature delivers high quality, small-lot productions of Napa Cabernet and Sonoma Chardonnay, expertly crafted by Pride winemaker Sally Johnson.
Cristie Kerr Women’s Health Center
In 2010, Cristie’s foundation Birdies for Breast Cancer partnered with Jersey City Medical Center to create the region’s foremost specialist center for women’s health issues. Named the Cristie Kerr Women’s Health Center, it makes breast cancer screening, diagnostic testing and treatment programs available to all women, regardless of their ability to pay. The center has performed well over 100,000 procedures since opening in 2010.
Birdies For Breast Cancer
Cristie founded Birdies for Breast Cancer in 2003, a not-for-profit organization raising money and awareness to fight the disease. Cristie donates $50 for every birdie and $100 for every eagle she makes while on tour – and encourages her sponsors to match the donations. Fans and supporters are also able to pledge through birdiesforbreastcancer.com. In 2004 Cristie started her annual Birdies for Breast Cancer Celebrity Golf Classic tournament.
