Corporate Partner Spotlight: Total Wine & More

Strong corporate partnerships are an essential part of many non-profit organizations.  That is certainly true of KEEN Greater DC.

For the past eight years, Total Wine & More has been supporting KEEN through its annual fall fundraising event, KEENFest.  It all began in 2010 when a KEENFest committee volunteer reached out to Total Wine inquiring if they would host a wine tasting at that year’s KEENFest, which was to take place at the French Embassy. They agreed, and have been providing annual support ever since.

“We chose to support KEEN for a variety of reasons, but the most important is the country is only as great as how we help those that are most vulnerable.  Making the lives better for children with disabilities, there is nothing more important.”

Total Wine & More’s support over the years has included in-kind donations of wine for the KEENFest reception and dinner, unique and fun bottles of wine for the silent auction, trips to California and Bordeaux France for the live auction, event sponsorship and financial contributions.  Their support of KEEN and our kids has truly been amazing.

The year 2017 has been no different.  As we prepare to celebrate KEEN’s 25th Anniversary at the KEENFest Gala on November 4, 2017, KEEN is proud to share that Total Wine & More will be the Presenting Sponsor of this momentous event. 

“June and I are really excited to be the Presenting Sponsor at the 25th Anniversary KEENFest.  Year after year the organization helps more and more children.  There is no greater reward than the smiles of accomplishment on their faces,” explains David.

Supporters are invited to join Total Wine & More at the 25th Anniversary Gala: KEENFest 2017 to celebrate 25 years of KEEN.  Visit our event website for further details.
