Wine tasting fundraiser

  • Last night we held a wine tasting fundraiser for our Jdrf ride to cure.  We raised about 500 dollar, and it is an easy fundraiser and lots of fun.  I invited people through Facebook and email...so no cost there and pretty easy.  Sent reminders the same way.  We had twenty people come ( the shop is pretty small and 20 is a good number so you only have to open one bottle of each wine)
    The tasting was at a local wine shop who offers the wine tastings free.  He does this to reach out to new customers ...so good deal for the wine shop.  He provides a dollar or two of each bottle purchased back to our goal. (He gave us $100.)
    I asked those attending to donate $10 to our goal ...so would have raised 200 there but many people gave more than that! 
    Only cost to me was the cheese and crackers that I got to make it a bit nicer than his normal " free" tasting.  It was a fun easy night  and I was pleased with how much we earned for so relatively little effort. 
    Anyway I thought I would pass it along since I know a lot of people do fundraising for the walk and all.  Just a bit over a month and we are on our way to our 4 th  century!
