Around Wine Country

An Evening of Elegance and a Good Cause

February 01, 2017

Leap down the rabbit hole and enter Wonderland at the Evening of Elegance Dinner and Auction. Hosted by The Marcus Whitman Hotel on Friday, February 11, all of the proceeds from the evening will benefit the patient care programs of the Walla Walla Community Hospice.

Begin your journey at 5:30 with a wine reception and auction. Nibble on hors d'oeuvres while you sip and bid on the chance to win swell swag like limited edition wines, works of art, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, dinner parties with friends, and the famous pie.

Jay Fiske returns as the evening’s emcee and auctioneer. As the founder of Northwest Benefit Auctions in Bellevue, WA, Jay is well-known as a friend who has helped charities raise millions of dollars nationwide. The Marcus Whitman’s own Chef Grant Hinderliter is preparing a four-course dinner and pairing wines for the occasion.

Tickets are $100, which includes the wine and hors d'oeuvres reception, dinner, all the fun and games, and wine throughout the evening. For tickets and details, contact Events Coordinator Claire Evans at (509) 525-5561 or visit:
