Yakima's Red Cross to host annual wine event fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Tickets are available for Yakima's biggest Red Cross fundraiser of the year, the tenth annual Grand Vin celebration. The event raises money for the red cross while bringing out Washington's best wines. There's a gourmet dinner, outdoor dancing and desserts.

Ticket sales go toward disaster relief, training and emergency response. "Grand Vin helps us to provide services and programs for people that are victims of fire, that are flood victims. We support mass care in the form of firefighters and our first responders," said Lisa Reinhart, Executive Director of the Yakima Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Grand Vin tickets cost $125, which is half of what they were last year. It starts at 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Sawyer House in Yakima.
