Olivia Newton-John Makes an Appearance at a West Michigan Meijer
If you were at the Cascade Meijer on Monday, October 10th, yes that really was Olivia Newton-John sitting at the table in front of the pet department! She was in town to promote her Pink and Blue for Two charity wines.
The wines are sold to help promote breast cancer (pink) and prostate cancer (blue) awareness. The wine brand was started by her nephew — race car driver Emerson Newton-John. A portion of the proceeds go to the Pink & Blue campaign, which raises money for early detection of breast and prostate cancer. Some of the funds also go to Olivia’s Wellness and Research Centre in Australia.
I have admired Olivia Newton-John from the first time I saw her in “Grease”. I was one of the many people who stood in line for a chance to talk to her and to get her to sign my bottle of Pink & Blue chardonnay (they also have a cabernet).
The wines can be found at Meijer locations. Meijer is the first major retailer to sell the wine.
