Wine & Cheese Fundraiser

Wine & Cheese began in 2015, when I started arranging a monthly gathering for some of my close friends. We had maybe 20 people at the first few events, but since then we've grown to an RSVP list of over 100 guests and we've begun to outgrow some of our venues. Additionally, the cold weather limits the amount of outdoor space available at our venues, and in some cases it cuts max capacity as much as 50%.

In order to create modular, heated spaces outside our venues, I would like to purchase portable heaters, enclosed party tents, extension cords, lights and tables. I also plan to accommodate increasing event turnout by renting park shelters and buildings, which will require the purchase of alcohol permits. These changes will support the continued growth of W&C, but it's a costly investment for me, and I remain committed to keeping W&C a free event for attendees.

So here is where you come in. I'm hoping that you guys can help me reach my goal amount by donating through this website. If you would instead like to purchase from my Amazon wishlist, please contact me. I will also gladly take donations of any of the items I listed above or donations of items (wine, toys, art, etc.) for me to raffle off. As always, I would love to hear your ideas too.
