Join Us for Wine Down Wednesday May 2nd to Benefit Family Lifeline

Downtown Short Pump is proud to partner with RichmondMom.com again for our monthly Wine Down Wednesday charity event, coming up on May 2nd at The Wine Loft in West Broad Village. The fun kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and it’s all to benefit Family Lifeline.

You don’t want to miss this fun night out with friends, old and new. RichmondMom.com‘s Kate Hall and DTSP Editor Trevor Dickerson will be your hosts for the evening.

This isn’t just for moms–It’s an event for Richmond moms, dads, singles, and anyone who wants to attend for a great time & support a great cause. And if that’s not enough reason to come, then check these additional great reasons to join us:

  • There will be incredibly delicious appetizers provided with discounted wines, and we’ll give you an extra raffle ticket for each entry.
  • The Wine Loft Richmond is the shizzle. It’s a cozy atmosphere that allows for networking so bring a friend. Or come alone, we’ll introduce you around.
  • We give stuff away. That’s right, for every entry fee of $5 we give you a raffle ticket; additional tickets may be purchased for $1.00. We give away photography gift certificates, Kate Hall’s famous Richmond Rocks books, and generally cool prizes you will surely put to use. Midas of Richmond’s Mark Smith often attends and generously donates some Midas giveaways.
  • 100% of funds raised will benefit Family Lifeline of Richmond.

We’ve raised as much as $800+ each month in just a couple hours at each Wine Down Wednesday at The Wine Loft. What a great way to relax and help out a valuable Richmond non-profit. Over the last three years, we’ve raised thousands of dollars for great Richmond non-profits just by having fun.

We’ll see you on May 2nd, 2012 at the Wine Loft in West Broad Village!
