SEATTLE – Aug. 17, 2020 — The Auction of Washington Wines (AWW) pivoted online for its 33rd series of charitable wine events from Aug. 11–15, 2020. Through online auctions and a live streamed virtual gala presented by Seattle Bank, the organization raised over $1.74 million. Proceeds from the August events benefit Seattle Children’s, Washington State University Viticulture & Enology Program research, as well as AWW. Top auction lots of the virtual live gala were the “PPP – Post-pandemic Pool Party hosted by Macklemore,” a trip to London to see the premiere of the next Bond movie and the chance to explore Napa, “The Other Wine Country” with AWW 2020-2021 Honorary Chair, Karen MacNeil. The total raised for these items was $117,500.

“We are so grateful for the incredible show of support for the Washington wine industry, which is such a key part of the overall Washington state economy,” said AWW board president Beth McCaw.
