MV Wins was founded in 2000 by Sharon-Frances Moore owner of Shances.com a business readiness and etiquette company and Johnna Wynn a National Board-Certified Teacher (NBCT), who has since retired after 37 years of teaching. The two avid philanthropist and community volunteers witnessed nonprofits struggle with fundraising and outreach decided to do something about it. They founded MV Wins an organization that assists nonprofits with fundraising and community outreach.
Both Johnna and Sharon-Frances' families started vacationing on the island of Martha's Vineyard in the early 1960s, so it was only natural that they thought of this idyllic setting as a launchpad for Sip and Savor Events. Since 2012, the entire volunteer team of MV Wins and Sip & Savor have assisted nonprofit organizations to bring positive change to individuals and communities at large by planning epicurean and special fundraising events on Martha's Vineyard, at no cost. This year's Sip & Savor events will focus on support for nonprofits that make tangible changes in students' lives.
