Companies Donate $250,000 to Wine Science Center at WSUTC

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - Sister companies Cooperages 1912 and Oak Solutions Group plans to donate $250,000 to the Wine Science Center at Washington State University Tri-Cities.

The companies made the announcement Tuesday and are making a joint donation through the Boswell Family Foundation.
 
"This project struck a chord with our family, as it is important to us to give back to worthy educational institutions in our industry," said Brad Boswell, company president. "It is clear the Wine Science Center will play a vital role in the Pacific Northwest as a center for research and education, helping to sustain and continue the tremendous growth this market has experienced."

The university will break ground on the 39,300-square-foot facility on Thursday, Sept. 26, in Richland. The wine center is a $23 million project designed to attract world-class researchers and students who will focus on the challenges and opportunities of grape growing and winemaking in the Pacific Northwest.
