Is your inner philanthropist chomping at the bit to help create a better world for others?
Join the BoStrong Foundation (BSF) as it strives to help young adults battling cancer. Each year, 60,000 young adults are diagnosed and 9,000 will die. Cancer is the fourth leading cause of death behind accidents, suicide and homicide in this age group; and, they are more susceptible to be diagnosed with certain cancers than younger children or even older adults.
Here’s one fun event where YOU can make a difference!

The BSF was founded to honor the memory of and create a legacy on behalf of the kind, gifted and talented young man and musician — Harry “Bo” Sinclair Oliver, V — who lost a four-year battle with Ewings Sarcoma, a rare pediatric bone cancer. Diagnosed in March 2012 (as a sophomore in high school) Bo’s initial course of treatment included seven months of intense chemotherapy, radiation, and a stem cell transplant. In addition to traditional Western medicine, he received holistic supportive treatments (supplements and other therapies), which we believe made for a very strong overall response.
Two years later, cancer returned. A donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI) was recommended and performed requiring him to temporarily stop some of the supportive therapies that had been helping him so much. In May 2015, mainstream doctors could offer no further options. At that point, Bo’s entire treatment regimen was converted to 100% holistic, which resulted in a significant reduction in the size of his tumors. Unfortunately, the traditional treatments of the three years prior had done too much damage, and, on June 1, 2016, Bo lost the toughest battle of his life. He faced the disease with awe-inspiring resilience, strength, and faith.
One of our ways to both heal our pain and help others is through the BoStrong Foundation, which provides young adults and their families holistic treatment options as a therapy in and of itself or, in conjunction with mainstream options, as well as ongoing support and encouragement to all loved ones as they navigate a truly difficult journey.
All proceeds from the event, plus $10 from every wine bottle purchased go towards the BoStrong Foundation.
