Admit it, you love a party. Throw in wine from 17 wineries, and it becomes a REALLY GOOD party. Add a band? Oh, yeah, we’re dressin’ now. And, and (you knew there was more, right?), the proceeds from the party benefit one of the great concepts ever — hospice care for people at the end of life.
If you’ve ever had the unfortunate experience of needing hospice care for a loved one, then marveling at the love and care the hospice nurses and aides bring, you know what we’re talking about.
So, about that party. We think you should know about the annual Gorge Wine Celebration for Hospice event, coming up on Saturday, March 24. Our friends at the Best Western Hood River Inn are hosting this event, a collaboration between the Columbia Gorge Wine Growers Association and the Heart of Hospice Foundation.
So, even if you live outside the Hood River area but are planning a visit that weekend, this could be the thing for you. The event features a live band, Manimalhouse, and your admission gets you a Passport for the wine growers’ Passport Weekend.
In addition to the whoop-de-do, the event features a batch of auction goodies. Tickets are $75. Buy them online, or by contacting wine association executive director Talia Hammond at 866-413-9463, or by e-mail.
