Kick off the evening outdoors on the lawn of the Chateau Ste Michelle winery. Enjoy a glass of wine from the various tasting bars and food from Chefs Renee Erickson (The Walrus & The Carpenter), Trevor Pierson (Purple Café and Bar), Brian Scheehser (South Seattle Community College), Thomas Griese (RN74) and Paul Duncan (Ray’s Boathouse). This is also your chance to reserve your spot at one of the fantastic buy-in lots, as well as bid on our silent and super silent auction lots.
Make your way Inside the Tent
After Social Hour, make your way into the tent, find your table, and settle in to a multi-course meal, served by Seattle’s favorite chefs, paired by your table’s winery host. Sit back, visit with friends, and be prepared to raise your paddle high to support our beneficiaries.
Bid High & Bid Often!
The Gala is about celebrating Washington wine while giving back generously to our beneficiaries. Our supporters have helped us to offer incredible auction lots, giving you the opportunity to add legendary bottles to your cellar, or leave the event with one of our unique experiences. There is something for everyone, whether it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore Chile and Patagonia with our industry co-chairs, Juan Muñoz-Oca & Jessica Munnell; a chance to jet across the country for dinner with legendary wine reviewer Robert Parker; or the opportunity to buy seats at an exclusive dinner featuring Figgins Family Wine Estates wines and a meal crafted by the Butcher’s Table.
