Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

Wines for Humanity, What is it you may ask yourself?
We are a Wine Sampling Event company dedicated to introducing the public to fine wines while raising funds for charity. Our delicious wines are sourced from award-winning vineyards the world over.
The hosts of these private Wine Sampling Events and their guests relax and enjoy the wines in a fun, educational environment.
Not only does everyone have an extraordinary time with great wines and good friends, but a portion of the proceeds from every bottle promoted directly benefits families in their community who find themselves on the brink of homelessness for reasons beyond their control. At Wines for Humanity we believe no family in America with children should become homeless through circumstances beyond their control.
Wines for Humanity is also a social enterprise. We not only believe in helping the world around us, we also believe that charity starts at home. I am also happy to DONATE to your live or silent auction an In Home PRIVATE wine tasting for you and your 15 guests.
A portion of the company’s profit will go to:
– Our own in-house charity for our Wines for Humanity family
– Profit sharing with our Team Leaders that grow the organization significantly
– Further personal development of the Wine Advisors within Wines for Humanity
A Wine Sampling Event is a great way to gather your friends and family for an educational and unforgettable experience!
