FRANKLIN WINE FESTIVAL 2019 RECAP
A BILLION THANKS TO OUR PATRONS, SUPPLIERS, DISTRIBUTORS, STAFF & VOLUNTEERS
More than $2.4 million raised for Big Brothers Big Sisters at Franklin Wine Fest
The 15th annual Franklin Wine Festival, presented by Cool Springs Wines & Spirits, and supported by Nissan, raised over $250,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. To date, the annual event has raised over $2.25 Million for the charity.
While it’s hard to believe this is our 15th year, it is truly an honor for everyone at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits – alongside our loyal patrons and supporters – to announce that we raised $250,000 at the 2019 Franklin Wine Festival. To date, the event has raised more than $2.4 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, a Bubble Lounge, a Whiskey Lounge, 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.
A special thank you to our generous distributors: Empire Distributors of Tennessee, Ajax Turner, DET Distributing Company, Beam Suntory, Best Brands, Fireside Distributing Company, Athens Distributing Company of Tennessee
