Vin Bin Charity Fundraisers

Held at Vin Bin West

We will provide light refreshments, such as cheese and crackers. We will also have a staff member to do a wine tasting for you. 

An advance deposit of $250 is required to book the date.  If your group spends a minimum of $500 on anything in the store during the fundraiser, the $250 deposit will be returned to you. The Vin Bin will then donate 10% of the net profit on anything spent over that $500. The deposit covers cost of additional staff, wines, food, clean up, and insurance. Net profit after deduction for credit card service fees, tax and deposits.

On the night of the fundraiser, we will not be able to close the doors to the public. The store will remain open, but anything spent by the public during the time-slot counts toward your number. 

You may sell tickets to the event at any price you see fit and you keep all the proceeds. You may also sell them at the door the night of the event. If you would like, you may ask the public if they would like to buy tickets, but we cannot require them to purchase tickets to enter the store. 

We also offer wine bottle discounts every day. If you would like, we can eliminate the discount program for guests. This will help raise your total donation. We will make an announcement that in lieu of store discount, additional funds will be donated to your charity. 

Raffles are also permitted during this event. However, please be aware, we cannot allow outside alcohol into The Vin Bin as a gift item. 

We do ask you to also fill out our donation request form below as this is where you will enter your tax id number and contact us about holding this fundraiser 

Please let me know if you have any further questions. We are looking forward to working with you!
