Thank you for joining our virtual event!

The eighth annual Wine Walkabout was hosted by the Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) for Kennedy Krieger Institute. Typically, WIN hosts this event at the acclaimed Caves Valley Golf Course, but this year, WIN offered a virtual wine tasting with food pairings that guest enjoyed from the comfort and safety of their homes. WIN partnered with Linwoods and Peter Wood, managing partner at The French Paradox Wines, to provide delicious wines and an array of culinary delights.
Thanks to our amazing event co-chairs, WIN members, generous sponsors, guests and the Fairmount school community, we raised more than $25,000 to support Kennedy Krieger Institute.
FUNDRAISING GOAL HAS BEEN MET!
Proceeds from this year’s event are being used to fund much-needed shade structures for the playgrounds at Kennedy Krieger School Programs’ Fairmount campus, a nonpublic K-8 special education school that serves students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The school has two specially-designed playgrounds that provide sensory input and socialization, and using the playgrounds is a beloved school activity. But during the summer and early fall, it can be too hot for students to use the playgrounds, as many students have secondary health conditions that make exercising in hot weather difficult. Adding shade structures to the playgrounds will allow students to use the playgrounds for more weeks of the year.
The Wine Walkabout also supports the work of the Women’s Initiative Network, a volunteer organization dedicated to raising awareness of, and providing resources for, Kennedy Krieger and the children and families it serves.
Thank you to this year's co-chairs, Cynthia Cavanaugh, Aimee Fulchino and Shari Tompkins.
