Hilldrup Spreads the Love to Local Community

Hilldrup’s Stafford branch was feeling the love – for both giving back and well, wine! In honor of Valentine’s Day, Stafford employees were encouraged to donate to an organization that’s near and dear to Hilldrup’s heart, the Rappahannock United Way. By donating and participating in the fun, employees had the chance to win a mystery bottle (or 2, or even 3!) of wine to take home to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

As part of our year-long campaign with the Rappahannock United Way, over 50 wines were generously donated by Hilldrup’s leadership team for the fundraiser. Employees had two ways to play and win with either a $10 or $20 donation.

A $10 donation was rewarded with the chance to spin Hilldrup’s raffle drum and select a wine cork with a number written on it. Participants would take home the mystery bottle of wine with the matching number displayed – super easy!

A $20 donation would earn the participant the chance to play a game that was a bit more challenging, but with three chances to win – ring toss! Employees tossed three rings for an opportunity to land all three on bottles of wine to take home. If the three rings didn’t land on a bottle’s neck, the participant would spin for a numbered cork to receive a mystery wine, guaranteed. Those who successfully landed up to three rings on bottles of wine took those bottles home to enjoy or share!

For each donation, employees would earn a raffle ticket for a drawing to win a Valentine’s Date Night Basket. This grand prize basket included two bottles of wine, two wine glasses, two bags of chocolate and a $50 restaurant gift card. Congratulations to our grand prize winner, William “Willie” Johnson!

While waiting for a turn to play, employees created over 60 handmade Valentine’s Day cards for Poet’s Walk Memory Care Facility in Fredericksburg. The cards were decorated with sweet quotes, fun stickers and a lot of love, for the residents there to open on Valentine’s Day.

Hilldrup is passionate about sharing the love, and we’re thrilled to have raised a total of $510 for the Rappahannock United Way through our fundraiser – great work! Thank you to Hilldrup’s leadership team for donating the wines and thank you to all of our participants for your generosity in giving back to those in our local community!

Isn’t giving back sweet? Check out photos of the fun below!
