Our 10th Wine Party Topped Them All!

TUGG's 10th Annual Wine Party was like none before!

Last Thursday, we celebrated our 10th Annual Wine & Tequila Party at Landmark Center in Fenway. Thank you to the almost 2k attendees who came out to support social innovation and party with the best of 'em! If you couldn't make it, just know that you missed one heck of a party! Read more about it on BostInno.

First Tie in History!

Congrats to our returning nonprofit winner: Resilient Coders. Resilient Coders is a free, volunteer-based program focused on making web technology more available to kids who might not otherwise be exposed to it. Each student builds a website, coached along by a web professional.

For the first time ever we had a tie in the new nonprofit category! Congrats to new winners: First Teacher and We Thrive

"We're excited to join TUGG's portfolio of non-profits, which consists of a few mentors and advisors to our organization already," said Daquan Oliver, WeThrive's executive director. "It's an honor to receive the support of the TUGG and Boston community to take our platform that much further in achieving our mission."

First Teacher is a community of parents and caregivers working together to prepare all our children for success in kindergarten and beyond, and WeThrive is an entrepreneurial mentoring program that pairs college students with middle school and high school students in low-income households.

“It was a new experience. I had never done anything like that before, and when I left, I felt awesome, and I don’t think it had anything to do with us winning,” said Nikole Huertas, a founding parent leader at First Teacher. Congrats to all of the nonprofits!
