Auction of Washington Wine
Auction of Washington Wine weekend is upon us. Now is the time to raise a glass to the two recipients of the many charity events held Aug. 18 – 20, Washington State University Viticulture and Enology Program and Seattle Children’s Hospital.
From the Picnic and Barrel Auction and private winemaker dinners in homes across Seattle to the Columbia Run Walk and the grand Winemaker Gala these efforts have raised more than $34 million since 1988 for these charities.
For more than 100 years, Seattle Children’s Hospital has been dedicated to providing top-quality care to every child in who needs it, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
Patients come from Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and in Washington many patients come from the same regions that grow the grapes and produce award winning wines.
