Check out some ideas for hosting your fundraiser below.

Aspen Lane Wine Company Wine Party

Drink wine and do good at Aspen Lane Wine Company!

Wine parties are held on-site at Aspen Lane Wine Company, located at 3682 Prairie Lake Court, Unit 1C, Aurora. Parties include wine and food pairings for you and up to 40 of your friends, family and co-workers. You pick a date, invite your friends to purchase a ticket (typically $35 per person) and Aspen Lane Wine Company does the rest.

All wine party event proceeds are donated to the Sensory Garden Playground project.

To learn more or schedule a party, contact Carey Moreland at 630.510.4961 or cmoreland@wheatonparks.org.

Employee Giving Campaigns

Ask your employer to sponsor an employee giving campaign.

Some fun and easy ideas on how to raise funds at your workplace include:

  • Set-up an automatic payroll deduction allowing employees to make a regular or one-time payroll deduction to benefit the Sensory Garden Playground project.
  • Casual for a Cause Days – allow employees to wear jeans or other casual attire to the office on a predetermined date(s) for a donation.
  • Get your customers involved by setting up donation bins, or donating a percentage of the sales, or offering a coupon with a minimum donation to the Sensory Garden Playground.
  • Ask your company to match any funds raised by the employees and customers.

Facebook Fundraisers

If your company has an active Facebook page, host a Facebook fundraiser benefiting the Sensory Garden.
