Mainstay's Second Annual Wine & Food Pairing Event Raises More Than $31,000

A Benefit to Help Job Seekers with Disabilities!

We are thankful and excited to announce that our Wine and Food Pairing event raised over $31,000 for career resources for people with disabilities. Plus, wine valued at over $8,000 was donated for the fabulous auction, wine grab, and tastings. The 60 Mystery Wine Grab bottles were scooped up in a matter of 45 minutes, so we know you approve! Thank you for choosing to join us…we feel your support which translates to our participants!

On May 21, 2016, Mainstay partnered with the Seattle Culinary Academy to bring a delectable experience to tantalize your taste buds! Wines from Washington, California and beyond were savored with 155 guests.

Our warmest appreciation to everyone who helped make the evening so special including Simon Van Giesen and Marcella Fleming Reed. Their words resonate with all of us. Thank you for sharing your personal stories.

To our honorary co-chair, E. Glenn Leimbacher, we are incredibly thankful for all your leg work to make this event fantastic!

As you know, being employed means contributing to your community, being part of a team, having social and intellectual outlets and earning money.

Thank YOU for making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and our community!

Enjoy a few glimpses of the fun we had. We hope you can join us in 2017.
