It’s almost time for the holiday season, which means countless parties or get-togethers. Whether you are looking for a venue to host your party or are unsure of what would be a good wine to bring as a host gift, our partners at Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington have a solution for both of those dilemmas.

The Fourth Annual Season of Wishes Holiday Wine Tasting in Spokane will be held at the Boiler Room (6501 N. Cedar Street) on Dec. 10. For $20 per person, guests will have a guaranteed reservation time and will get to sample four wines and dessert. The full Boiler Room dinner menu will be available to guests at their own cost. Guests will also have an opportunity to bid on some unique silent auction items. Proceeds will be used to help grant wishes to local children in Eastern Washington.

The Boiler Room can accommodate large numbers of guests at their tables, so you can use this event as a holiday party for your company or the chance to get together with friends and celebrate. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets for the event on the event website. For more information, contact Leslie Woodfill at 509-747-1418.

Granting Wishes Helps A Child’s Quality Of Life

When you support Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington, you do more than just help a Wish Kid and their family; you help bring happiness to their whole family. According to the results of a 2011 Wish Impact Study that surveyed wish parents, health professionals, and volunteers, a wish come true empowers children with critical illnesses to fight harder against their medical conditions. When Wish Kids are granted a wish, they get more than just a great experience for a day, two days, or a week. That experience improves the quality of life for them and their entire family.

Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington granted more than 300 wishes last year alone, and can do so thanks to your attendance at events like Season of Wishes Holiday Wine Tasting.
