Thank you for helping make our annual Turning Wine Into Water event a huge success!
We are so very grateful to each and every WORLD CHANGER! Your donations, during our fundraising season, have combined to raise more than $314,000 (net). These proceeds will bring clean water to tens of thousands of people in 2023.
During the live auction portion of our evening you really rose to the occasion and funded:
as well as:
That’s $173K raised on event night. However, leading up to the event, sponsors contributed $38K which goes to covering event costs (overage above event costs goes to a water project) and there were many who could not make it to the event who contributed to water projects, water filters, and made general donations to the tune of $132K in lieu of attending the event. The cost of putting on the event was $29K. So $173K [event night contributions] + $38K [sponsorships] + $132K [pre-event night contributions] – $29K [event costs] = $314K [net], the net amount of money raised to bring the gift of clean water as a result of the Turning Wine Into Water 2023 event.
On the water filters donated on event night, God works in mysterious ways. Ingomar Living Waters and Honduras Hope Mission (HHM) were in discussions on doing our first well within the Villa de San Francisco area in Honduras where HHM operates. But we were trying to figure out funding for such a water project. And then on event night, donated over $23K for water filters on our target of $12.5K for water filters. Your above-and-beyond generosity has solved our problem about how to fund that water project in Honduras! Thank you! We will plan to use the excess to fund that water project. This unexpected extravagant generosity in funding water filters led us to run out of wine on event night. A good problem to have! We will follow up with those who sponsored or bought water filters and are still owed wine to make arrangements.
World Changers…your generosity is stunning! We are humbled by your dedication and support of the Ingomar Living Waters mission. Just know that you really helped accomplish something very special. There are tens of thousands of people right now who are suffering from the negative impacts that come with having no access to clean water. They (mostly women and children) spend hours hauling dirty water and dealing with the horrendous effects of waterborne diseases. And all of that is about to change for thousands of people around the world, thanks to your efforts and the generosity of you and so many across the ILW community. Our team is already working on approving projects (we actually have 6 ready to go!) to get clean water to those who need it most!
Your generosity this year has blown us away. May God bless you as you are blessing others with the gift of clean water!
If you didn’t get a chance to come to the event or contribute, please join in and help bring the gift of clean water by making a general donation or funding a water project!
Please help sponsor this year’s Turning Wine Into Water event which will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2023 at 7 PM at Carnegie Science Center’s Point View Hall.

It is very hard to have a Turning Wine Into Water event without wine. We are looking for one or more donors to contribute to provide fine Clemente wine that will be auctioned and used for gifts to encourage giving towards clean water. This wine really will be turned into water that will bring life to thousands of people. By providing the wine, you are making miracles possible. We need $7,500 total from one or more donors to cover Clemente wine used for the event.
NOTE: You will not receive paper tickets, reservations, or access passes. Your sponsorship information will be recorded by us and included on the name tag you receive when you register upon arrival. A portion of your contribution may be tax-deductible but 100% of the event proceeds bring the gift of clean water to the world.
Because sponsorships provide things of value to the donor, we cannot accept payments from Donor Advised Funds (DAFs), Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) or other non tax deductible funding sources for “Barrel”, “Magnum”, “Bottle” and “Glass” sponsorships. You are more than welcome to make a general donation to Ingomar Living Waters, fund a water project, fund water filters, or even donate to provide “Wine to Turn Into Water” from a non tax deductible funding source, since those things confer no benefits to the donor.
If you have a conflict and are unable to join us at the Turning Wine Into Water event on April 29, 2023, please consider making a general donation and/or donating towards water filters in lieu of attending the event. To make a general donation or donate to water filters, use the “Sponsor Now” button below and you will be given those options. If you are unable to attend the event but would like to fund a water project, please consider funding a water project using the “Fund a Project” button below.
We hope that everyone will be able to join us for an exciting time and fine food and wine and great company at the event! But we want everyone to have to opportunity to help bring the gift of clean water to the world!
For our special VIP sponsors at the “Barrel” and “Magnum” levels who are key to making the Turning Wine Into Water event possible, you will receive tickets to an exclusive VIP Celebration to be held at the Engine House 25 Winery at the Clemente Museum in Pittsburgh. The VIP Celebration will be on Friday October 6 @ 7pm. If you are a “Barrel” or “Magnum” sponsor, please mark your calendars now. The VIP Celebration will be an exclusive event to celebrate the generosity of those who make the Turning Wine Into Water event possible. It’ll be an evening of free flowing fine Clemente wine, exquisite cheeses and charcuterie, and finger desserts. The goal at the VIP Celebration is simply to have fun and celebrate those who helped make the Turning Water Into Wine event possible through their generosity.
