WineDiscovery is an annual charity event hosted by the Metroport Rotary Club with help from the Southlake and Keller Rotary Clubs. There are no administrative costs so 100% of sponsor funds and net proceeds are used for charitable purposes. Most proceeds are awarded as scholarships to local graduating high school students, over $250,000 to date. Remaining proceeds are used for local grants, projects, hands on work with local charities or humanitarian projects internationally.
Metroport Rotary Charities is a 501(c)(3).
