Are you planning to have a wine pull fundraiser? Try using playing cards or a spinning wheel to change up this popular revenue-generating activity. A wine pull is a fundraiser that provides guests a chance to draw for wine at a fundraising event. Typically, in a wine pull, you ask guests to pay $25 or more for a chance to pull a bottle of wine. The bottles of wine are usually valued at $25 or more to guarantee guests get wine worth the amount they paid. To add some excitement and increase interest, include a few bottles of wine that are valued at $50 or more. To find out how a wine pull works, see our previous article.

How To Use Playing Cards in Your Wine Pull Fundraiser
Using playing cards in your wine pull is a quick and easy process. Attach a playing card to each bottle of wine displayed at your event. Ask each guest to draw a card from another deck of cards. They win the bottle of wine that matches the card they selected. To add mystery to the game, you can offer a blind wine pull. To incorporate this variation, conceal the bottles of wine by wrapping them in crepe paper, tissue paper, burlap, or by putting them in wine bags or even cute, colorful socks. See our Pinterest page for more ideas. Usually, guests opt to purchase numerous pulls because they love this fundraising activity. To do this, offer one bottle for $25 and 3 bottles for $60 to encourage guests to purchase more.
How to Use a Spinning Wheel in Your Wine Pull Fundraiser
Using a spinning wheel in your wine pull offers a wide variety of options. Create or purchase a wheel that has 10 or more prize options. Number each bottle of wine based on how many numbers are on the wheel. If you have a lot of wine, you can place wine in sections. Label each section with a number corresponding to the numbers on the wheel. Ask guests to spin the wheel and select wine from the section corresponding to the number they spin.
Increase interest by adding other wine-related prizes. These prizes can be won by landing on a Pick Your Prize space on the wheel. Some prize ideas include: magnums of wine or baskets of wine, wine tastings or wine and cheese events at local wine shop, and wine accessories like glasses, corkscrews, etc.
