The benefits of wine for one’s emotional and physical wellbeing are undeniable. As a prominent figure in the industry, we believe that Willow Park Wines & Spirits should have the same positive impact as our products do.
Over the last 25 years, our community initiatives have raised millions of dollars for local charities and organizations, spanning a variety of disciplines. Through the establishment of The Vintage Fund, our continued involvement as sponsors for local events, and frequent in-kind donations, our dedication to the community sets us apart from other retailers.
In 2001, Willow Park Wines & Spirits established The Vintage Fund, managed by The Calgary Foundation, which allows us to directly support numerous local charities and organizations. To date, we have raised over $4 million thanks to several events, generous donations from our partners, and our annual Willow Park Wines & Spirits Charity Wine Auction.
The charities and organizations we donate to reflect the corporate goals and values of Willow Park Wines & Spirits. Our pillars of Community Investment include Seniors Wellbeing, Community Health & Recreation, Education, and Arts & Culture.
