Volunteers are the key to this St. Julian Winery fundraiser at the Paw Paw Wine and Harvest Festival
L-R: Jamie Pursley, Nellie DeLong and Ron Swank
Jaime Pursley and Ron Swank of St. Julian Winery in Paw Paw, presented Nellie DeLong of Eleanor’s Pantry, with a check for $2,500!
The money was raised as part of St. Julian's program of allowing Eleanor’s Pantry volunteers to help at the Wine and Harvest Festival pouring beverages during the event.
St. Julian is already planning to do this fundraiser again next year!
This is a significant fundraiser for us! Thank you St. Julian Winery and our community!
Thank you to those of you who helped us during the Wine and Harvest Festival. MANY people volunteered to pour wine for Eleanor’s Pantry at St. Julian during the three day festival. Your time and effort are so appreciated.
Thank you for your help!
2018 visitors to the Wine Fest at St. Julian’s and downtown at the parade gave a total of $1,127.12 during the event!
In 2018 about 150 volunteers assisted with wine pouring during the day, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, representing Eleanor’s Pantry. Our volunteers earns us a donation from St. Julian’s. We also had donation containers at each table, where wine tasters gave.
For every $1 the pantry spends, they can buy $10 worth of food! Multiply this by 10 and you can imagine how much food this buys from our food supplier.
