7th Annual Ugly Sweater Wine Walk Returns to Reno
Reno Riverwalk District announces the return of the 7th Annual Ugly Sweater Wine Walk, with a portion of the event proceeds benefiting Safe Embrace
RENO, Nev., November 14, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Help support Safe Embrace and the Reno Riverwalk District during the Reno Wine Walk, on Saturday, Dec. 16, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., a perfect occasion to show your appreciation for community, education and wine. As a special addition to this month’s Wine Walk, the Riverwalk District will be hosting an online ugly sweater selfie contest via Facebook and Instagram. Three thousand locals and tourists are expected to attend this month’s event wearing their most awful of holiday sweaters and apparel.
Each month portions of the proceeds for the Reno Wine Walk benefit local charitable organizations. In over six years, the event organizers have donated more than $86,000 to local non-profits. This December, the Riverwalk District’s monthly event will be supporting Safe Embrace, an organization offering services to those suffering from domestic violence near Reno, Nevada. The organization provides help and resources, counseling and clothing for people dealing with domestic abuse.
The Wine Walk is a monthly event held on the third Saturday where you purchase a decorative wine glass for a $20 wine-tasting fee. With wine glass in hand and a valid photo ID, you’ll receive an ID bracelet which allows you to sample wine at any of the 20-plus participating merchant locations. Many of the businesses hand paint each individual wine glass which attendees get to take home. At the end of the event, attendees enter to win over $700 in gift cards from all the participating merchants during a 5 p.m. raffle held at The Library (formerly The Waterfall Bar).
