Kick-off the summer season by joining us for an evening of fun showcasing all things Woodinville. From the outstanding wineries, craft breweries, cideries, distilleries and restaurants, this lively evening brings together the best of Woodinville Wine Country.
This year's event will help benefit Ben's Fund. Ben's Fund is helping children with autism reach their full potential.
The Ben's Fund mission is to provide grant opportunities to families across Washington state who need financial assistance with requests related specifically to their child's autism spectrum disorder treatments.
Ben's Fund was launched in 2012 by Seahawks Executive Vice President & General Manager, John Schneider and wife Traci in honor of their son Ben, who was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old.
