Join us for a fun filled evening on Friday July 16th at the Crowne Plaza (Event begins @ 6:00 PM) featuring a tasting and presentation of several premium moonshines through Sugarland’s Distillery as well as a collection of spectacular wines. The Volunteer Ministry Center is taking precautionary measures to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all attendees regarding COVID. The evening will also include delicious gourmet food, a live band, and a live and silent auction led by no other than Auctioneer Bear Stephenson that will provide you the opportunity to bid on some of the most fabulous and unique items in Knoxville! VMC is honored once again to have storyteller extraordinaire Sam Venable as the Event Emcee! Proceeds from the ticket sales go directly to support the programs of the Volunteer Ministry Center.
The Wine & Shine Event is FUN with a PURPOSE- the purpose being ending and preventing homelessness in Knoxville! VMC’s programs support its two-fold mission of facilitating permanent supportive housing for those who are homeless and providing services to prevent homelessness. VMC operates the following programs: The VMC Resource Center, The Bush Family Refuge, Minvilla Manor, Street Outreach, The Foyer and The VMC Dental Clinic. The goal for all clients is housing. Utilizing case management and the ‘Housing First’ approach to ending homelessness, VMC assists individuals into permanent, supportive housing and provides the resources necessary to maintain housing.
