Getting Involved

 

As an organization it is very important to give back to the community that has been so supportive of us. 

Every year, The Merrimon-Wynne House, in partnership with event professionals in the Triangle, sponsors a nonprofit organization to host a fundraising event in which 100% of the proceeds go directly to the chosen charity.

2017 Fundraising Event Donations

read & feed

 

The mission of Read and Feed is to give low-income elementary school children an appetite for reading by strengthening literacy skills and providing encouragement in a nurturing, neighborhood environment. Using mobile classrooms, they provide meals to eliminate hunger, mentors to help children read and books to build home libraries.

In November 2017, Merrimon Wynne, along with many other wedding industry friends, hosted Read and Feed's 10th anniversary charity event where over $60,000 was raised to help continue Read and feed's mission.
