This year’s Grapes on the Green wine tasting event raised a record-breaking $555,000 to benefit the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) on Friday, August 22.

“It was a very exciting event,” says organizing committee member Stacy Lill. “Passing the half million dollar mark was a key milestone for this world class organization that does so much locally and globally to save people’s lives and wipe out disease.”

Honorary co-chairs Leonard and Norma Klorfine were joined by patient speakers Mary and Chuck Kastner and 300 philanthropic leaders. Guests tasted an elite collection of wines from local wineries: Barrage Cellars, Beringer, Col Solare, DeLille Cellars, Ghost Block, Lachini Vineyards, O Wines, Paradigm Winery, and Sparkman Cellars.
