Last Chance to turn in RAFFLE Tickets!

No comments

Today by 4PM is your last chance to turn in RAFFLE tickets.

In an effort to make the evening more enjoyable and less chaotic, we will NOT be selling tickets at Visions & Vines tomorrow night. So this is IT! Get them turned in!

We are just over half way to our goal. We need to collect 10,000 tickets to receive a $10,000 MATCH from a generous donor! Let’s Do This Waugh! If everyone turns in 10 tickets, we might have a chance.

Your $10 could mean an additional $10,000 for our schools! 

There are collection boxes in each school office, WISE tables will be out front of schools at pick-up.

The RAFFLE drawing will take place tomorrow night at Visions & Vines. Who will be our Three Lucky Winners? You do not need to be present to win. Make sure you have a name and phone number on your ticket and turn them in to be entered to win.


Thank you to our sponsors!

Pints for a Purpose – Thank YOU!

No comments

Thanks to those of you who came out to support WISE and bought a pint. Because of YOU…

We raised $4,774 for students in the Waugh School District!

A big thank you goes to Lagunitas for choosing WISE to be one of the recipients of their generous donations in support of their community this year. Lagunitas gave us 100% of the beer sales for the night, totaling $2,323. Thanks Lagunitas!

Also, WISE would like to thank The Melt and F.A. Nino’s for donating their time and talent to help make this event a success. The Melt rocked the stage and entertained our guests with their funk-jazz grooves. You can track The Melt’s upcoming shows on their website. They will be playing at The Big Easy on March 16th for the Petaluma Music Festival Showcase. Get out and vote for them! F.A. Nino’s food is taking Petaluma by storm. They are the talk of the town and WISE is blessed to have had their support for this fundraiser. You can buy F.A. Nino’s mouth-watering sauces in local stores. They also have their food truck at Petaluma Hills Brewing Co. on Sundays from 2-6pm. Keep an eye and ear out for both of these amazing talents. Food and Grooves to feed your soul.

Thank you Lagunitas, The Melt and F.A. Nino’s.
