Murphy-Goode Winery announced in April 2023 its new "Goode" campaign, A Really Goode Cause, that sought three non-profit organizations to each receive a $25,000 donation for supporting their local communities, all in the name of sharing some "goode."
Following a three-month nomination-based search and submission review process, Murphy-Goode selected the Ceres Community Project as one of three recipients of A Really Goode Cause. The other two recipients are Frankie's Family organization of Louisville and the Louisiana SPCA.
The Ceres Community Project delivers prepared organic and medically tailored meals to community members that are inhibited from grocery shopping or cooking due to severe illness. Ceres Community Project was nominated by local food delivery volunteer Matthew Geer of Sebastopol, who as part of the Really Goode Cause will be awarded a separate $10,000 for his winning submission.
Frankie's Family is a 100 percent volunteer-based organization that helps provide Christmas gifts for children in the local area. Frankie's Family began with founder Frankie Hilbert "adopting" kids from the Salvation Army's Angel Tree, and soon grew it to be one of the most successful gifting non-profits in the area. Throughout the year, Frankie's Family raises money, hosts toys and coat drives, and accepts toys and monetary donations to gift children essential clothing and toys for Christmas.
Louisiana SPCA is one of the few animal shelters not affiliated with other SPCA or Humane Society and operates and raises all funds independently to provide spay and neuter services, pet care and wellness, pet training and more. Its community clinic provides affordable, low-cost services to the animals in the greater New Orleans area. LASPCA was nominated by David Robichaux, who will be awarded a separate $10,000 for his winning nomination.
