Bethany's 8th Annual Taste of the Northwest
Date:
April 26, 2013
Location:
Comcast Arena - Everett, WA
Description:
Bethany of the Northwest is celebrating 82 years of serving seniors and their families in the Everett area. We do so without regard to religious preference, race, cultural orientation or source of payment. In fact many of our residents have outlived their financial resources. Funds raised at the Taste will benefit our senior residents. We’d love to have you participate in this year’s Taste by having your wines poured. To participate, we ask that you donate 6 bottles for each variety of wine that you sample. Wineries generally pour 2 to 3 styles at their designated tables. We encourage you to attend to represent your wines; however we do not require this. We have a large volunteer group available to pour wines. Please supply any tasting notes and winery promotional pieces as you feel appropriate. All attendees will have a full listing of participating wines. We also hold a large silent auction. Please consider a donation of an auction item. Large format bottles, signed bottles and private winery tour and tastings are always successful and appreciated items.
