The ChillaVino Challenge is Here!
Get your ChillaVino now and support ALS 

The Angel Fund announces an innovative new product, and an exciting new partnership!


The Angel Fund is partnering with Compassionate Care ALS for a cool new 

match - The ChillaVino Challenge.  

This challenge will create more awareness for the two ALS charities and we hope to raise $500 thousand  for ALS through the ChillaVino Challenge.  

ChillaVino, is a new breakthrough product that elegantly displays and keeps your wine, champagne and other beverages chilled, without using water or ice!


ChillaVino has its sights set on making ice buckets obsolete, but not the challenge that brought global awareness to ALS. It can be customized for any decor, business, celebration or occasion. It's an ideal gift that will compliment your home, office, brand or man-cave. It also saves water and is simple to use.

ChillaVino Challenge can be found on Be one of the first to have this new product, while supporting ALS!!


Every time a ChillaVino is purchased through this promotion, the maker of the ChillaVino will contribute $2.50 to both The Angel Fund and CCALS through an exclusive marketing partnership.


We hope that you will take the Challenge and become one of the first to pledge to purchase a ChillaVino today, and by doing this, it will help to support ALS research and those currently living with ALS, their families and caretakers.
