Purchase your tickets and make plans to join FAIS family winemakers and distributors on Saturday, November 8 for La Fête du Vin! This year's event, co-chaired by Kim Hasle and Shannon Conley, will be held in the Atrium at Montgomery Park in NW Portland and will feature wines from Bergström, Cameron, Domaine Drouhin, Patton Valley, Petit Monde and Scott Paul. Pilon D'Azucar will provide musical entertainment for the evening's festivities. All wine offerings are available for purchase (by the bottle or the case) and wine orders will be available for pick up Friday, November 21, in time for Thanksgiving celebrations and other holiday gatherings! Plus, case orders receive a 10 percent discount, even on mixed cases. Family vintners generously donate 30 - 50 percent of wine sales to support programs at FAIS.
Look for the Annual Fund Blue Tent at drop-off and pick-up, make your gift, and get your Starbucks fix (a.m) or a candy treat (p.m.)! The Annual Fund is one of FAIS' most important fundraisers, and helps bridge the gap between the tuition families pay and the actual cost of educating each student. A gift of any size make a difference for our students and donations are 100 percent tax-deductible. We hope to see participation from all our families. Show your support for our amazing school and faculty by making your donation during this kick-off week! *Gifts made before December 31 may be deducted from your 2014 taxes; all donations made before June 31, 2015 count for this year's Annual Fund.
