Will you be visiting Walla Walla to do wine tasting? Anchor Drive is a unique designated driving service offered by Delta Gamma, Alpha Eta chapter at Whitman College. Our members volunteer to safely drive wine tasters to and from the area’s finest wineries. 100% of the proceeds go to Delta Gamma’s national philanthropy organization, Service for Sight, and the chapter’s ongoing fundraising efforts to install audible crosswalks for the visually impaired community in Walla Walla. There is a suggested donation of $20/hour, however the chapter will gladly accept whatever the customer deems appropriate. To make arrangements please email anchordrive@gmail.com at least 72 hours in advance.
