Rocky Mount, NC – October 27, 2020 – Bin & Barrel Wine Bar and Bottles along with the help of the Rocky Mount Chamber of Commerce has launched a new funding source to help support small businesses affected by Covid-19 in the Downtown Rocky Mount Area called The Downtown Entrepreneur Growth Fund.
The fund was created to help support small businesses affected during this time that need a financial bridge to help support their business. As small businesses are the backbone of any community, this fund will help support those that have continued to open their doors to serve our community even when they were not having a great financial year.
Sarah, owner of Bin & Barrel Wine Bar and Bottles stated “Over this past year we have watched as our neighbors suffered, and some still suffering, due to the Covid-19 crisis, and many did not receive or did not qualify for federal funding. As a community, we should want to see our Downtown grow and thrive, and sometimes we all need a little help to get there.”
This fund will be supported from donations and in-kind sponsorship from community partners and others. Throughout the month of November, Bin & Barrel Wine Bar and Bottles plan on hosting several events and raffles with all proceeds going towards the Downtown Entrepreneur Growth Fund.
Bin & Barrel Wine Bar and Bottles will host complimentary tastings are on the first three Wednesdays of November from 5:00 -7:00 p.m. at their location in Station Square, 301 South Church Street, Suite 146 in Downtown Rocky Mount.
One of the special private ticketed events will include a special 8-year vertical tasting evening with Owner Renae Perry from Papapietro Perry Winery. Papapietro Perry was kind enough to donate a magnum of their Pinot Noir, which Bin & Barrel and all proceeds will be donated to the fund.
