There are many ways to be a part of the fun and excitement of Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend events and to support our fundraising efforts.


Make a Donation

Since 1989, Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend has donated over $5.5 million to our charitable beneficiaries. Each of our four beneficiary organizations (GenOne; Mitchell's Fund; The Learning Collaborative; and The Relatives) has its own unique mission, and we’re thrilled to share the ways your dollars can make a difference.

Your tax-deductible donation of money or auction items can help to improve the life of a child, right here in our local community.
