Highlights from 2017 Wine with Wings




Thank you for making our first Wine with Wings wine tasting a success!

Our first fundraiser in the Kennett Square area was a sold-out event!  What a wonderful statement about community spirit and interest in supporting Wings for Success and our clients! Nearly 150 people attended Wine with Wings, held at the Kennett Square Golf & Country Club on June 1.  The wines, provided by Patone Cellars, were popular, the food was delicious, the country club setting was beautiful, and the silent auction was a sell-out! 

Special thanks to our sponsors, auction donors, and the guests who attended.
Your participation and generosity make it possible for us to continue our mission to empower women in need to pursue employment and economic security.
