Good Things Begin with Wine

In 2006, Denver, CO was an up-and-coming city in the process of shedding its cow-town image. Denver was on the mend after the Tech Wreck internet bubble of the early 2000s dealt a devastating blow to the local economy. Young professionals started to see real career opportunities emerge, and realized that the city has a second-to-none lifestyle that few parts of the world can boast about.

David Ball and Mark Starosciak were two of those new transplants; one a lawyer and the other a financial advisor. As they surveyed the landscape and contemplated how to make their city even stronger and better, they saw non-profit community in need of finding and engaging their next generation of supporters.

Out of this need, WineLeague® was born to give dynamic non-profits a unique and fun forum to bring young professionals into their organizations. But we aren’t finished just yet!

Currently WineLeague® is expanding in cities across the US in an effort to help other communities grow stronger philanthropic roots with young professionals. Click Here for more information on how our unique competitive wine events work.
