The NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT) partnered with ONEHOPE Wine for two “Grapes for the Good” wine tasting fundraisers on Monday, July 29, and Tuesday, July 30, in Nashville, Tenn., and Franklin, Tenn., respectively. The events were free of charge with complimentary Hors d’oeuvres.
ONEHOPE Wine donates half of their profits to causes such as breast cancer, ending childhood hunger, supporting our troops, providing clean water and women empowerment. Each bottle of wine purchased supports a specific cause.
The CPT is dedicated to promoting ethical leadership in business, organizations and institutions. “Grapes for the Good” not only promotes giving back, but also encourages partnerships in business to accomplish philanthropic goals.
“This was a great idea and truly reflected the CPT’s mission to promote ethical leadership through giving back,” said John Johnson, NASBA’s Director of Legislative Affairs, who attended the event in Nashville.
Nashville’s event was held at the Nashville Downtown Partnership, while both Olivia Olive Oil and the Schakolad Chocolate Factory both provided lovely settings for the fundraiser in Franklin, which created an alluring fusion offresh, gourmet chocolate and exquisite oils that made the event a huge success.
“The combination of unique oils, delicious chocolate, flavorful wine, and great people having fun for great causes made our Franklin event successful,” said Ronald Taylor, Student Programs and Development Specialist for the CPT. “We want to again thank our partners and attendees for supporting us.”
