The 23rd annual Auction of Washington Wines, held August 19-21 at Chateau Ste. Michelle in Woodinville, raised $1.4 million for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Washington Wine Education Foundation.
“We are very pleased with this year’s results,” said Auction of Washington Wines Executive Director Carol Munro. “Our donors and patrons are committed to supporting Seattle Children’s, and continue to demonstrate their loyalty through our events.”
A Barrel Auction and Picnic with the Winemakers raised more than $60,000 through picnic games, a silent auction and an exciting Barrel Auction.
Nearly 500 wine lovers attended 13 winemaker dinners around the greater Seattle area. In its second year, Revelry on Red Mountain at Col Solare Winery near Benton City raised an impressive $16,000.
Since its inception in 1988, the Auction of Washington Wines has raised more than $24 million.
