Foundation Events

We exist to help Washington’s grape and wine industry thrive.

We work toward making that vision a reality by bringing together partners and facilitating funding to craft sustainable solutions to our industry’s toughest challenges.

But we can’t do it without your support.

Join us at one of our fundraising events and you’ll keep the Foundation hard at work meeting industry needs while mingling with other like-minded industry visionaries.


Partying for the future of our thriving industry.

On February 7, 2018, nearly 400 wine industry movers and shakers came together at the Toyota Center in Kennewick to raise a glass (and some money) for the future of Washington wine at the Foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year — our annual Party + Auction. Attendees enjoyed a diamond derby, live music, a custom chef-designed dinner, wine from premier Washington wineries, and silent and live auctions. Auction items included international cruises and trips, exclusive winemaker dinners with industry legends, magnums of Washington wine and more.  Over $160,000 were raised, supporting the Foundation in crafting solutions to our industry’s greatest challenges.


A long-standing tradition in the wine community, this successful event has raised over $400,000 during the last decade to support Foundation goals.
