Barsha Wine Giveaway

barsha giveawayHow healthy is your lifestyle? The Blue Zones Project of the Beach Cities would like to make it healthier – and more fun. With its new campaign, Wine @ 5, they’re asking adults to look for a friend and a glass of wine around 5pm each day, to connect socially, “downshift” and “belong.” The medical benefits of a little wine are a nice bonus.

To promote Wine @ 5, they are sponsoring a very cool giveaway – a massive gift basket from Barsha, the new wine store on Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach. The gift basket, valued at $200, is chock-full of good-for-you goodies including wine, coffee, tea, and chocolates.

To enter, all you have to do is take the Blue Zones pledge for healthy living. A winner will be drawn at random from all Manhattan Beach residents who sign up during the month of February.

That’s it – you’re done! You’re on the road to a healthier lifestyle already. And now that you’ve got a glass of wine in your hands, stop by and visit the lively community of readers at Manhattan Beach Confidential, the official host of the giveaway. Here’s to your good health!
