This Year, Water 2 Wine-DTC Takes “Top Dog” and “Largest Canine Crew” Awards!

Visit Us on the Web – Click Here For the sixth year in a row, the Water 2 Wine-DTC/Tipton Law Firm Team was excited to participate in the Furry Scurry to benefit the Dumb Friends’ League!  This year’s team was not only the largest team in six years, but the largest team in Furry Scurry history.  The team finished 110 members strong, and raised a whopping $31,837.80 for the Dumb Friends’ League. There were too many patrons of the winery and the law firm to name them all, and each and every one of them made a unique and very needed contribution to support the League. Team building and fundraising efforts start earlier and earlier each year. This year, representatives from both the law firm and Water 2 Wine-DTC have worked tirelessly since January 16th to build this year’s Furry Scurry Team and raise money for the League. The growth has been amazing, and in some respects, exponential; from 33 members, and $8,000.00 raised in 2009 to 108 members and over $30,000.00 raised in 2013. Water 2 Wine-DTC owner Nancy Tipton said of this year’s team, “it is one of the most energetic and organized groups we’ve ever had the honor of sponsoring!” The announcement that this year’s team silent auction would be hosted on-line and be accessible in an “EBay” like style brought great excitement and revenue. The on-line silent auction, alone, raised nearly $6,000.00. As in all the previous years, the Law Firm opened its private wine cellars to provide some great incentive items to its participants over the age of 21. For the first time ever, Water 2 Wine-DTC had the opportunity to open its library of collectible wines this year and auction off various older vintages for the silent auction. In addition, the winery’s Wine Club was extremely supportive this year, raising nearly $1,000.00 in one night at a Wine Club party in early May. The Water 2 Wine-DTC/Tipton Law Firm Team has gained quite the reputation for the great team incentives it provides its hard working team members, as well as the amazing grand prizes for the team’s top fundraisers.  This year, prizes for the top fundraiser include in-home wine tasting parties to guided food and wine pairings.  Once again, this year’s list of giveaway items was long and impressive, and included a year’s worth of dog or cat food for one lucky winner.  This was a record year for donations from local and national businesses for the Team After Party which was held on May 30.  In the past, this astonishingly energetic team has given away items to team members such as two round-trip tickets on Frontier Airlines anywhere in the Continental United States, a weekend at a Hilton hotel of the winner’s choice, an Estate Planning Package, professional dog training classes, stays at the Lowes Hotel, gift baskets and gift cards galore as well as dog paraphernalia, handmade wood carvings, and more.  Let’s just say, the list of giveaway items is always impressive! Once again, the team organizers expressed a very warm and special thanks to all the winery customers and wine club members as well as the law firm clients who helped support the team by joining and raising so much money for the League! If you weren’t on the team in 2012, join us in 2013!  The team festivities will begin the middle of January 2013…stay tuned! photo Share this Post on Facebook by Clicking Below: ““ © 2013 Carriage House, LLC.  All Rights Reserved.
