To raise awareness and to help increase donations for the DTRF, Nicole decided to host a wine tasting fundraiser at a local wine bar (A Taste of Wine). The wine bar offers discounts on cases of wine, making the fundraiser affordable for me. They recommended that 1-2 people sponsor the wine tasting and then all profits from the event went 100% towards the DTRF. She created a public facebook page and passed out flyers. Tickets were $25 a piece since Nicole’s company matched donations of $25 or more. In addition, she had several baskets donated for a silent auction to help raise additional funds. It was a low-cost way to drive awareness and to collect donations. For those who couldn’t join, she advertised online donations.
