Wine with Wings 2021
Join us for our 5th annual fundraiser!
UPDATE: NEW EVENT DATES!
With vaccines in Chester County rolling out slower than we had hoped, we have made the decision to push our event back by a month. We will still hold a virtual event for those unable to attend in person or those who want to enjoy a glass of wine while hearing about Wings work.
We are also looking forward to seeing our supporters face-to-face!
Wine with Wings is a special opportunity for community members to support local women in need. This year’s event will feature a virtual event and an in-person event, along with a silent auction & raffle. We look forward to celebrating the lives of women impacted, while also sampling food paired with wine from Harvest Ridge Winery and supporting local businesses with our silent auction and raffle.
All proceeds directly benefit our Kennett Square location and provide access for vulnerable women in southern Chester County and the surrounding area.
Thursday, June 3rd, from 6-8:30 PM at The Gables at Chadds Ford
Early Bird = $60
After 5/3/21 = $65
At-Door = $75

Highlights from Last Year’s Wine with Wings
Our fourth annual Wine with Wings fundraiser went virtual last year—a first for us! While we were disappointed to not be able to celebrate together in person, we were thrilled by the outpouring of support and generosity from the community. Guests joined us from near and far, all from the comforts of home, as Gunnar Mossblad, a local Grammy-nominated jazz musician, kicked off our live stream event with some beautiful tunes.
Our virtual program highlighted some of the inspiring women we have served, including a moving testimonial from Cheryl, a Wings client who found herself unexpectedly needing our services during a time of transition in her life. Kristi and Erin from Harvest Ridge Winery joined us remotely from their tasting room in Toughkenamon, PA, to share some wine and food pairings. Kelly Quant, Wings Kennett Square Program Manager, took a moment to recognize our amazing volunteers. From packing bags of emergency clothing for our clients working on the front lines to facilitating virtual workshops to providing one-on-one advice, our volunteers have allowed us to continue providing our services during these uncertain times.
