If you haven’t attended a Wines of the Pines event, you are clearly missing out! The buzz is not just about the wine; it’s about all the terrific charitable organizations Wines of the Pines supports, and the local business sponsors who make the events possbile.
Wines of the Pines is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting charitable and business groups in working together to raise funds for those individuals who find themselves in need of assistance.
The Castle Pines Chamber and Wines of the Pines have elected to combine thier charitable resources for 2010. The combined goal is to promote charitable social events which allow the residents and the businesses of the Castle Pines community to come together for a common cause – giving to others.
All profits which are produced from these social events are distributed to charities within Douglas County.
