Update: Wine Tasting Fundraiser Success!

Thanks to everyone who supported TNRPCV by attending the wine tasting at Flyte wine bar and restaurant. It was a blast and it was great to see new faces! With the funds raised, we’ll be able to give more grants to current PCVs from TN. Theses grants are discussed during our monthly board meetings, which are open to all TNRPCVs.



Wine Tasting Fundraiser

TNRPCV invites you to their annual Nashville wine tasting with proceeds supporting Peace Corps development projects around the globe. Come mingle with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, enjoy wine & snacks, and support a wonderful cause.

The event will be on May 3rd (6 to 8pm) at Flyte World Dining & Wine (718 Division Street, Nashville, 37203). Tickets are $40 and include the tasting and light bites.  If anyone wants to stay for dinner, they will receive %10 off their meal.  The Big Payback is also that day. If anyone brings proof of Big Payback donation, they will receive a special gift.  The site to by tickets is TNRPCV’s Spring 2017 Wine Tasting.


Events Update

Here are some photos from recent TNRPCV events. It was a lot of fun to gather at East Nashville Brew Works for happy hour to celebrate Peace Corps Week. At the event, we collected items to include in restart kits for newly arrived refugees. As a way to kick off Peace Corps Week, we volunteered at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore.
