Dimmitt Automotive Group was proud to sponsor the 4th Annual Wings, Wheels & Wine this past Saturday at the Clearwater Air Park.
It was an unforgettable evening of excitement, with a beautiful showcase of exotic vehicles, luxury watercraft, and airplanes. Guests enjoyed live music, a silent auction, dinner and libations.
Luxury for a Great Cause
All proceeds collected benefit The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit charity with a mission to secure the financial future of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The foundation builds community awareness, encourages community involvement, and provides financial support to the most vulnerable within our community.
The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation relies on grant funding, corporate and planned giving, and fundraising events like Wings, Wheels & Wine. The charity manages over twenty Residential Homes, two Adult Day programs in Clearwater and Tarpon Springs, Harborside Studios Art Gallery in Safety Harbor, a Supported Living and Supported Employment Program, a Clinic.
Over a week before the date of the event, The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation reported that demand was so high to attend the award-winning Wings, Wheels & Wine that tickets had completely sold out! While the foundation was able to create more in order to try to meet as much of the demand as possible, the popularity of the event helped the foundation to achieve an incredible milestone and raise over $300,000.
An Elaborate Raffle
Many events boast a raffle. Guests love trying their luck to win a prize. The raffle at Wings, Wheels & Wine, however, takes the fun a few steps further than most.
Guests could purchase raffle tickets at the event or for a discount prior to the night. The general advice was to stock up, and now we know why!
This was no ordinary raffle. There were over 50 items and experiences to win!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support such a great cause! For more information about The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation, or to learn about charitable and volunteer opportunities, please visit https://thearctbfoundation.org/
