The culinary feast prepared by local chefs and farmers at each event is rivaled only by a theatrical feast for the eyes with artistic concepts presented by local performers. Both Wine Women & Shoes and Farm to Table(aux) offer nonprofits a unique, lively and outside-of-the-box approach for revenue generation and new donor recruitment. A prototype event was first launched and tested in October, 2016 with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County, CA., with resounding success. Offers Zane Smith, Executive Director, Your company was transformational in helping us grow awareness, attract new donors, and raise more money than ever before with a single event. STUDIO 4forty and Farm to Table(aux) are the brainchild of founder Elaine Honig who also founded Wine Women & Shoes. A veteran marketer for 21 years at Honig Winery in the Napa Valley and a seasoned philanthropist, Elaine has a depth of experience in brand-building, event management and creative fundraising. After serving on several boards, she found herself suffering from event fatigue attending one too many of the same old fundraisers. She came to the conclusion that nonprofits could achieve greater participation and fundraising success if they enlisted more creativity and (for profit) business practices in building and executing their events. Inspired by her own experiences, she created a new business model that provides nonprofits with everything they need for effective fundraising from a step-by-step how to event guide, graphic design services, and experienced advisors, to budget planning, recruitment of local volunteers and more. Her inaugural series, Wine Women & Shoes, provided a disciplined blueprint for success, with most nonprofits exceeding their expectations and past fundraising results. Adds Ms. Honig, The whole idea is that our nonprofit partners raise more money and awareness for their cause with us, than without us.
