Why

The Wine Walk was developed by an ad-hoc committee of the Civic Club as a fund raiser for the constable program.  In 2016 a new association, GO Constable, was formed, to organize and manage the event.  All proceeds from the annual Wine Walk will go to the Garden Oaks Civic Club to be used exclusively to fund its contract(s) with the Harris County Precinct One Constable.  GO Constable is looking for other fundraising ideas for the constable program, as well as ideas for increasing neighborhood participation in the program (that is, how to get more folks to pay the voluntary $225/year constable program subscription fee).

History

The first Wine Walk event in 2009 raised about $3,400. In 2016 the event raised $30,000. The past eight wine walks have raised a total of more than $130,000, all used to help fund the constable program.
