Representatives at Family Promise of Greater Phoenix are reporting the 501(c)(3) nonprofit raised $339,000 at its annual Wines Around the World event on March 30 at the Clayton House in Scottsdale.
Wines Around the World, which offers various wines from across the globe, is an event designed to gather community members and benefit families experiencing homelessness, according to a press release.
Funds received from this event will be used to support Family Promise’s efforts in developing the infrastructure and resources necessary to significantly impact the lives of more children and families facing homelessness, officials there say.
“Family Promise uses a community-based model to address family homelessness across the Valley. Wines Around the World helps bring community members together to ultimately support these families,” said Ted Taylor, CEO at Family Promise of Greater Phoenix.
“Events like these help ensure Family Promise has the resources it needs to effectively support families in need of housing and get them back on their feet. Family homelessness is a rapidly growing issue across the Valley, so these types of events help us address a pressing need.”
During this event, participants were able to enjoy delicious wine from Europe and the United States, a full dinner, musical entertainment, a wine pull – a drawing for bottles of wine, a silent auction and live auction. Family Promise of Greater Phoenix partners with community leaders and organizations to help support families in need of housing.
