Hamptons supermodel, actress and entrepreneur Christie Brinkley announced Thursday that her Bellissima Prosecco will be sold at Costco in Riverhead starting Memorial Day weekend!

Brinkley posted the welcome announcement on Instagram with a picture of herself kicking up her shapely leg and holding bottles of Bellissima while standing in the blue waters of Haiti, where she recently traveled with her family. She writes:

“Cause for Celebration ! My #organic #vegan #allnatural#prosecco @bellissimaprosecco is now available @costco in Riverhead , LI Liquor store department no membership required.

Cheers!”

The model and her daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook, traveled to Haiti to work with Smile Train, a not-for-profit organization and charity that provides corrective surgery for children with cleft lips and palates. While in the Caribbean nation, Brinkley shared numerous photos on her @christiebrinkley Instagram account, including images of Smile Train doctors and locations such as Cap-Haïtien, Le Palais Sans Souci.

In a photo caption talking about her Smile Train Mission, Brinkley explains, “1 out of every 700 children is born with a cleft lip or palate. It’s the most common facial birth defect. In developing nations they lack the infrastructure and access to good medical care so children are forced to live often in shame with this problem that can cause malnutrition and limit their opportunity for success.” Before the trip, Brinkley asked fans to donate to the cause, and she gave proceeds from sales of “Smile Kits” from her skincare line.
