Who doesn’t like wine? And who doesn’t like charity? In June 2017, as part of their annual workplace giving campaign in support of Water For People, the Walnut Creek office of Carollo Engineers, Inc. combined these two passions in a single event called Wine into Water. The inaugural event included an unlimited wine tasting featuring some of Northern California’s best wineries, food, music, games, and more. Water For People is a nonprofit organization that works with local communities in nine developing countries around the world. Their mission is to bring clean drinking water and sanitation services to Everyone. Forever. Their business model allows for rapid expansion of great ideas for long-lasting, sustainable, and replicable solutions to the global health crisis. Wine into Water attracted over 100 employees, friends, family members, members of the public, and other professionals in an evening of fun and charity. Through this event and others at Carollo offices around the country, $86,000 was sent to Water For People for the 2017 campaign.
