Wine Pull Fundraiser 2018

unnamed (3)

Our executive director, Molly, had the incredible idea of bringing a new type of fundraising event to the Upstate, a wine pull! And that idea became a reality at our first ever fall fundraiser on October 25th. At the fundraiser, everyone who attended got the chance to pull a bottle of wine and take it home with them. The wine was graciously donated to BirthMatters by a number of donors from around the Upstate. (Please see the full list of donors below.) This event was a real hit with everyone who attended. Not only did attendees get to enjoy some great wine from The Silo at RJ Rockers and some yummy cheese and snacks provided by wonderful donors while at the event, they got to go home with a whole bottle of wine. One lucky winner even went home with a bottle of wine valued at $100! Attendees enjoyed getting to learn more about what we do here at BirthMatters, and got the chance to mingle and chat with our staff about the work they do. The night reached its peak with wine pulling portion of the event, with some attendees attempting to sneak a peek at the bottles before they made their selection. Keep your eyes peeled for next year’s wine pull, this is an event you won’t want to miss out on. For now, please enjoy some photos from the event.
