“We have been supporters of the Washington wine industry since we moved to Seattle in 1996.  We are fortunate to be friends with many of our amazing winemakers and growers from Washington state.  We have been involved both personally and through our work with the Auction of Washington Wines for many years.  The support the event is able to provide to Children’s Hospital, the viticultural program at Washington State University and other eastern Washington charities benefiting the wine industry workforce, is so vital. We are truly honored to be the Community Chairs for the 2023-2024 Auction of Washington Wines.”
