Swirl Washington
Date:
June 15, 2014
Location:
The Davenport Hotel, Spokane, WA
Description:
Welcome to Washington’s newest premier wine event, Swirl Washington. Pairing the state’s finest wineries with eastern Washington’s award winning chefs and finest restaurants, and backed by a substantial marketing and public relations campaign, Swirl Washington is poised to become this summer’s “must experience” event! Previous Taste Washington and Savor the Columbia events have quickly sold out as Inland Northwest residents have a thirst for fine wine and great food. Better yet, the proceeds from Swirl Washington benefit Providence Health Care Foundation, Eastern Washington. The Foundation ensures access to compassionate, world-class health care with special emphasis on reaching the poor and most vulnerable in the Inland Northwest.
