This is a follow up post of sorts to “Wine is for Sharing“. Anna was nice enough to comment on the post and said “Many of my most rewarding experiences in life spring from spontaneous giving such as this–whether it’s a drop of wine, the gift of a smile when I’m grumpy or money I don’t want to part with.”

Anna’s comment struck a chord with me, and I thought why not throw together a list of upcoming wine related charity events. What’s more fun than giving people money for some good causes?…oh, yeah…giving money to good causes and drinking wine!. I can’t say whether or not they are good events, but they are for various charities, and I know I will be attending at least a few of these.

Take a minute, read through the list, visit their sites. You may find something that interests you. I know there are a ton more out there, including beer, and food tastings, seek them out.  It’ll make you feel a little better about yourself if you take the time to help someone else out.

Donate responsibly.
