Fundraiser for Chris Kastner

As you all have likely heard our friend and co-worker Chris Kastner has been working hard to recover from a stroke suffered last fall.  It has been a long and difficult journey and as a way to help he and Ashley we are going to have a get-together this coming Monday, April 11th from 6pm – 8pm at the new Evoke Tasting Room in Hood River.  The winery will be donating a sizeable portion of the proceeds from the evening to assist with the myriad of expenses that have been incurred, and we have a couple of ideas to add a bit to the pot.  We plan to have some entertainment courtesy of local legend Cale Rice and maybe more.

Please drop by and join us for the evening.  You can even try out some of our fellow employee Alaina’s wine.  Thanks and hope to see you Monday.
