Tom Larson designated the winery premises and tasting room this night for Sarah Cess, whose friends came together to have a spaghetti wine dinner to raise money for her and her family. I heard a brief story about Sarah my first day at the winery—An incredible young woman, wife and mother fighting ovarian cancer.
I imagined the night would be easy going and slightly somber—slow jazz music and decent food. Boy, was I was wrong.
I think everyone felt an awesome sense of accomplishment at the end of the night—we partied our asses off! At $25/person on top of T-shirt and wine sales and a silent auction that featured Becky Larson’s vacation rental in Tahoe, you do the math. ;)
