MANY THANKS TO OUR PATRONS, SUPPLIERS, DISTRIBUTORS, STAFF & VOLUNTEERS
MORE THAN $2.15 MILLION RAISED FOR BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS AT FRANKLIN WINE FEST
While it’s hard to believe this is our 14th year, it is truly an honor for everyone at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits– alongside our loyal patrons and supporters – to announce that the Franklin Wine Festival has raised more than $2.15 million for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. More importantly, the event continues to introduce many adults to the mentoring organization’s programs encouraging individuals to volunteer as mentors.
The event, hosted by Cool Springs Wines & Spirits and supported by Nissan, has grown over the years to include not only great wines and delicious food, but also artisan beers, an exceptional silent auction, live music on multiple stages, and the crowning of a King and Queen of the Vines to create an exceptional evening for attendees.
We are beyond privileged to have Nissan and the many other companies that have partnered with us, providing cash sponsorships and in kind support.
This event would not be possible without our truly fantastic team at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits and our loyal suppliers who have continuously supported our store and the festival. Our sincerest, most heartfelt thanks to Penny Rose Floyd, General Manager at CSWS, whose commitment to our store and this event is unparalleled. We are also pleased to welcome Jeff Warzynski to the Festival Committee this year and know his contribution will stand out to make this event even greater. To Angela Evans, our “daughter” and true founder of the Franklin Wine Festival… your heart and energy have always been devoted to the thousands of children who have benefited from the mentoring program at Big Brothers Big Sisters.
All proceeds from the Franklin Wine Festival benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters and allow the organization to offer mentoring programs to young people throughout Middle Tennessee.
Cheers to all of our great customers who showed their support. We hope you will visit us during the holiday season. As always, we are committed to offering the lowest prices on wines, spirits, beer and more.
Jackie and James “Woody” Woodard
