After appearing on Virginia calendars every February or March for the past 13 years, Richmonders probably know something about the Virginia Wine Expo. But, what you might not know, and what might motivate you to attend or get involved, is one of the original goals for the event was raising money for a charitable beneficiary.
In 2020, the J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College Educational Foundation will be the Expo's next charitable beneficiary, with proceeds supporting The Kitchens at Reynolds.
From September to November 30, nineteen VCCS colleges with Follett operated bookstores encouraged customers to “round-up” their purchases to the nearest dollar as a contribution to their local campus food pantry. Reynolds began at the bottom of the participating colleges, and in two short weeks, surged to finish second. A special thank you goes out from Curt Smith to all those in our Reynolds community for accepting the challenge and demonstrating their generosity.
Reynolds raised $2,324.01.
