Many thanks to all of our amazing supporters who joined in the celebrations at our invitation-only Winemaker's Private Reserve Dinner on Thursday, February 21 at the Portland Art Museum and the Portland Showcase of Wine & Cheese on Friday, February 22 at the Oregon Convention Center!
Winemaker's Private Reserve Dinner
This year, we honored our biggest heroes, the amazing staff at Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland. Because of their unwavering kindness, dedication, encouragement, and support, Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland has been continuously successful at creating a positive, safe, nurturing environment for over 27,000 youths in our community!
The Portland Showcase of Wine & Cheese
On Friday, February 22, we had our Annual Portland Showcase of Wine & Cheese, held at the Oregon Convention Center, which featured hundreds of wines, dozens of gourmet cheeses, scrumptious hors d'oeuvres and specialty foods that helped make the Showcase yet another can't-miss event! Guests received a complimentary wine glass and a tasting book to guide them through the spectacular evening, which also featured a silent auction, raffle prizes, a wine toss, and live music from "the Voice" John English - Sounds of Sinatra, and the Millennium Dance Band. Auction items included gift baskets with one-of-a-kind items from sports memorabilia, wines, gift certificates, beautiful pieces of art, and much more!
