No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Duck Walk Vineyards holds close to its roots as a family enterprise -- and that includes being a positive force in the community. We have cultivated long-term relationships with local charities, bringing us new friends and partners in giving. Annual fund-raisers held at Duck Walk Vineyards allow us the privilege of making a difference in our community, and provide an opportunity for us and our friends to help our neighbors in need.
Our annual traditions include:
Human Resources of the Hamptons
Their mission is to help those in need, without discrimination, including those who face poverty, hunger, illness or homelessness. Seeking to raise community awareness of the disenfranchised among us and to provide help in a dignified manner that lends a "hand up" not a "hand out".
Ride For Life
Ride for Life's mission is to raise public awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease), assist research in finding a cure, support ALS patients and their familes, and provide the ALS community with the latest ALS related news and information. Duck Walk is proud to support Ride for Life through fundraising at the vineyards.
Ann Liguori Foundation Outback Steakhouse VIP Dinner Dance
Every June, the Ann Liguori Foundation holds a spectacular dinner dance at Duck Walk Vineyards complete with DJ, auctions, raffles and prizes, all to benefit charities on the East End of Long Island that promote good health, nutrition and fitness and cancer prevention research. To learn more or to attend this event, contact the foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
John Theissen Children's Foundation Annual Toy Drive
Duck Walk Vineyards accepts new, unwrapped toys in our tasting room during the month of December for the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, which benefits sick and needy children throughout Long Island. As a thank-you every guest who donates a toy is treated to a free tasting.
