Senate Band at Olympic Cellars - YouTube

Friends of Olympic Cellars,

Another “Hot August Nights Concert Series” is over and what a year! Over 850 tickets were sold and the partnership with our non-profits was a resounding success. In total we were able to donate over $5,300.

Thank you to all the volunteers from the organizations listed below. They worked extremely hard to help us at the winery each Saturday night. It’s not an easy task to work a “party” of between 100-350 folks. Set-up, bar duty and clean-up was part of the Win-Win Partnership with our donation of all the ticket sales. Best of all, I got to dance!

Check out YouTube.

I posted two short videos of the Senate Band. We had our own mini-Woodstock Anniversary on August 15 with over 350 in attendance. It was a spectacular night and this is just an example of the talent that performs at the winery each year.

Partnering non-profit organizations and how they will use their portion of the ticket donations: Family Planning Clinic of Clallam County (women’s health care), Homeward Bound (affordable housing education), Port Angeles Farmers' Market (tables/chairs to promote community gathering at the market), YMCA (child care program) and Built Green (promote & educate… sustainable local resources and culture).

Cheers,
Kathy

Ps. We’re planning 3 intimate winery concerts this winter. Of course, they will be indoors. Stay tuned.
