North Shore Winery is a family run business. We are a proud supporter of many local organizations and fundraising events across Cook County and beyond. We understand donations are a part of continuing the betterment of our community and we are proud to be a contributor to many organizations and fundraising efforts year after year.
Before you make a donation request, please know that we average three donation requests a day and still need to maintain our day-to-day operations. It is difficult for us to respond to these requests and impossible for our business to donate to everything, as much as we would love to
