Foundation Events

Fundraising is an important part of our work and we can’t do it without you. We have fun together while we honor our past and build a great future. The money we raise goes to securing grants and other resources that address industry challenges, and cultivating new talent through scholarships and sabbatical awards.


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

Save the date for Wine Cup® 2017 on Monday, June 19! Who’s who in the wine industry gather each June for shotgun scramble play at Meadow Spring Country Club in Richland, Washington. Golf contests such as Longest Putt, Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin offer friendly competition while appetizers, lunch and wine is served. A great opportunity to make new connections and rekindle old ones, The Wine Cup® is a highly- anticipated event that sells out every year.
