On “Fat Tuesday”, February 9th, WWIF hosted its first-ever Mardi Gras Party + Auction at the Toyota Center in Kennewick. Over 400 wine industry movers and shakers enjoyed mock casino games, silent and live auctions, a strolling New Orleans inspired dinner, great wine, and fantastic entertainment – all in support of WWIF’s mission.
To those who attended, sponsored, and donated: Thank you! With your generous support we raised over $133,000 for WWIF, including over $27,000 specifically for the Foundation Fund Scholarship. Click here to see a few photos from the event!
Thanks to our visionary Board of Directors and our invaluable partnerships, WWIF is thriving, which is why we made the ambitious decision to replace our traditional Angel ShareTM Auction that has been nested within the WAWGG Convention with our own stand-alone event. We certainly learned a lot from our first event of this kind, and we would appreciate your feedback! Click the button below to take our brief survey.
Thank you again for your support – we’ll see you at Wine Cup®!
