Since March 1st, fundraisers have continually inspired and motivated each other through the sharing of stories of success. We’ve been compiling these stories so they are easy to find and share. This category of stories is all examples of campaigns that have included wine pulls or other ways wine was incorporated that have been successful. Each story links to its further details in our Virtual Fundraising Examples Blog. There is an unlimited variety here as these creative fundraisers have found many ways to create success for their organizations. Big or small, organizations have a path to success and we are happy to help out.
