“Our organization has always been dedicated to giving back to those in need,” said Lori Parrish, Events Coordinator for the Dallas chapter of the NFL Alumni Association. “Working together with local businesses for fun events like Corks and Canvas is always a plus. We’re very grateful to have Waters Edge Wineries help our cause.”

During the event, a live and silent auction will be held with exclusive prizes for guests to bid on, in addition to live musical entertainment and the opportunity to network with former NFL athletes, coaches and cheerleaders. The festivities will continue with an upbeat afterparty held at Tavern on the Square.

Funds raised from Corks and Canvas will benefit Caring for Kids, the NFL Alumni Association’s charity focused on gathering funds for local youth organizations which empower children through mentorship, education and community service.

“We love aligning our brand with organizations that value the meaning of community,” said Ken Lineberger, President and Co-founder of Waters Edge Wineries with his wife Angela. “The NFL Alumni Association sets an example for uplifting our local youth and we’re more than happy to assist in any way we can.”

The Linebergers pioneered the winery franchise concept with the launch of their business in 2004, introducing a revolutionary concept that allows entrepreneurs to own a functioning winery without owning a vineyard. Waters Edge Wineries purchases high-quality grape must (crushed grapes) from vineyards around the world. Wines are carefully crafted and bottled at individual locations. Today, each winery produces more than 50 different types of wine, including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, among others, using grapes grown in California, Italy, France, New Zealand, Chile and Germany.  Specialty blends are also created on-site, as are custom vintages.
