Auction of Washington Wines raises $1.5 million

Despite a tough economy, the 22nd annual Auction of Washington Wines still raised $1.5 million for Children's Hospital last week. The Auction expanded to four days of events this year, including Revelry on Red Mountain at Col Solare.

"While not a record breaker, as we've had the past few years, this is a very respectable amount in the face of a difficult economy. It's also a real statement of the loyalty from our constituents - donors and patrons - to support Seattle Children's Hospital in such a generous way," said Auction of Washington Wines Executive Director Carol Munro.
