| While the pictures are devastating, the death toll is shocking, and the restoration of Oso seems overwhelming, each of us can do a little something to help. We, as a company, have offered food, manpower, clothing, and hygiene products, but everyone comes back with the same answer…WE NEED CASH! Cash to run bulldozers, cash to pay emergency personnel, cash to house the displaced, and even cash to help bury those who have passed.|
So… let’s do what we do best to raise some serious cash! Charles Smith and the team at K Vintners in Walla Walla have rounded up a stunning group of Washington wineries, the Huxley Wallace Collective, Ethan Stowell Restaurants, as well as our own are stepping up to the grill to host an “Oso Needs Cash” fundraiser at the Palace Ballroom on April 22nd.There will also be a live DJ set from Bruce Pavitt, founder of Sub Pop Records. Yes, we know it is Earth Day, but that is the date that was available and tragically it seems somewhat appropriate.
All you have to do is go online here and buy a ticket… or two! If you want to contribute but can’t make it to the event, we will give your tickets to culinary students at the local community colleges. We have three hundred tickets to sell at one hundred bucks apiece… sounds like a nice friendly way to spend happy hour or a good team building event.
| Or maybe it will be a good time to reflect on how thankful we are, like our very own Bridget Charters, director of our new culinary school, who recognized the roof of her mother’s house in the muck on highway 530. Bridget is thankful that Mom is ok, but her world has been rocked to the core.|
There isn’t much time to act on this for us to reach our goal of $35,000. 100% of the proceeds will be distributed to the United Way of Snohomish County. We will supply the wine, music, and food, but you all are the other half of the equation. It takes two to tango, so come with us and let’s dance!
