• Get Involved


Our events would not be possible without the help and support of all of our volunteers – from those that help us in the office to the event team. Our volunteers donate their time and talents in various ways. Volunteers may serve as committee leaders or committee members. In addition,  Nashville Wine Auction also has office administration projects available throughout the year, and many volunteers assist with invitation mailings, pre-event preparation, and auction inventory.

Nashville Wine Auction enlists the help of many volunteers at our three main events, as well as at dinners and tastings. Over 250 volunteers join us each year for event execution and auction administration. Event set-up, event hosting, guest registration, and wine service are examples of the many volunteer teams in place during each event.

Excellence in Volunteer Engagement

In partnership with the Mayor’s “Impact Nashville” initiative, Hands On Nashville, and the Center for Nonprofit Management, the Excellence in Volunteer Engagement (EVE) certification was launched on September 30, 2010, as part of the national Cities of Service movement. It is the first of its kind in the nation and recognizes nonprofits with top notch volunteer programs.


Nonprofits are reviewed in five key areas of volunteer management. To qualify for the EVE certification, an organization must:

  • Include a volunteer component in their strategic plan
  • Have an identified and trained volunteer manager
  • Ensure volunteers’ time and talents are well utilized
  • Provide orientation for all volunteers
  • Evaluate volunteers’ impact on the community and agency

In 2013, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Nashville Wine Auction was recognized as an EVE Certified organization. Upholding this honor, we strive to give our volunteers the best experience possible as a reward for the time and expertise they lend throughout the year in efforts to support the fight against cancer. We even invite them to our Volunteer Appreciation Party in August!
