The annual event is the largest fundraising activity for both the East Cobb Civitans and Friends for the East Cobb Park, providing funding for the special events that are held in the park, including: Holiday Lights, Sunday Fundays, and other seasonal events. The Friends of the East Cobb Park is the volunteer organization responsible for purchasing, developing, and donating the land of the East Cobb Park to Cobb County. They continue to develop the park through the addition of pavilions, playground equipment, walking trails, overlooks and bridges. They also sponsor a variety of community events in the park.
To date, this “Wine & Vine Market” has raised over $141,000.00 for the East Cobb Park and well over $200,000 for local charities such as: MUST Ministries, The Center for Family Resources, The Center for Children and Young Adults, and Camp Big Heart.
