Wines for Change

Custom Wine Bottle Gifts for the Holidays

The Homeless Empowerment Program (HEP)  has partnered with Aspirations Winery and created a “Wines for Change” online fundraiser! For $15 each, participants can order a custom bottle of wine with family, pets, favorite image, saying, etc.  on the label and the money will benefit the shelter and support a local small business.

“Not being able to host events really affects the donations coming into the shelter,” said Eve O’Donnell, Donor Relations and Events Manager of HSP. “And if you’re required to stay home, what’s a better way than relaxing with your pet, drinking a custom bottle of wine, and supporting a local animal shelter all at the same time?”

Aspirations Winery has been a friend of HEP since 2018 partnering on small events and the 2020 Sea Blues Festival in Coachman Park.  With all face to face fund & friend-raising events have been postponed due to the pandemic, the winery came up with a unique idea to continue giving back to the HEP community.

“I enjoy partnering with the Humane Society of Pinellas because as a pet owner and lover, I believe that all pets deserve a chance for a good home. And HSP is a leader in doing just that,” said Bill Linville, owner of Aspirations Winery. “It makes me feel good knowing that Aspirations Winery can help.”

Blackberry Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, and Tropical Riesling are all available for purchase for the custom labels. Pick up and delivery options are available. To order a custom wine bottle, visit _____________ Photos for the custom wine bottles can be emailed to Rebeccaa@HEPempowers.org directly after purchase.
