Third Annual Beer and Wine Tasting Event A Success!
On Saturday, July 21st we had our Third Annual Beer and Wine Tasting Event. We chose for this event to benefit the USS Ranger Foundation. They are working to save the USS Ranger through public and private partnerships and bring it to Fairview, Oregon on the beautiful Columbia River as a museum, military memorial and civic center.
Many generous individuals and local companies including: Creative Visions Landscapes and Water Garden Center, Francis Xaviers, Gresham Ford, i4 Marketing, Jazzy Bagels, Nancy’s Floral, Night Owl Custom Apparel, Ron Pompel, USS Ranger Foundation donated raffle items. The proceeds of the raffle tickets and 20% of all purchases were donated to The USS Ranger Foundation.
Thanks to our great customers & the generous companies we exceeded our fundraising goal. We will be presenting the funds to the Ranger Foundation on Friday, July 27th at the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce meeting at RiverView Community Bank.
Best Burger Gournet Food Cart catered the event, and the food was plentiful & mouth-watering. Skyland Pub conducted the beer tasting, which included a special Ranger Beer. Alder Tree Vineyard conducted the wine tasting, which everyone really enjoyed as well! The event was a real hit and we are already working on our Forth Annual Wine Tasting Event for the summer of 2013.
