Help Advertiser E.B. Foote Winery “Stamp Out Alzheimers” Mar. 18-21
BTB Advertiser E. B. Foote Winery will be holding a special â€œStep into Spring and Stamp Out Alzheimerâ€™s Diseaseâ€ event the weekend of March 18 â€“ 21st.
Ten percent of all sales donated to the Alzheimerâ€™s Association in memory of Rich Higginbotham, co-owner/winemaker who died of the disease in 2008 (read our coverage here).
Envelopes will also be available so visitors can make a donation directly to the Alzheimerâ€™s Association.
To further honor Rich, his wife Sherrill Miller has made a special wine called â€œRemembranceâ€ and she donates 50% of the purchase price to the Alzheimerâ€™s Association for a particular research project being headed by Dr. Brian Kraemer. Remembrance is a 2007 vintage blend of 60% Cabernet, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with grapes from three different Columbia Valley vineyards, including Milbrandt, Graves and Arianses. When all of this wine is sold, more than $100,000 will be raised for research on Alzheimerâ€™s Disease.
Alzheimerâ€™s Disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and a new case of Alzheimerâ€™s is diagnosed every 70 seconds. More than 5.3 million people have Alzheimerâ€™s and that number continues to grow.
Step into Spring and Stamp Out Alzheimerâ€™s Disease, featuring wine tasting of six current releases including Remembrance along with snacks, will be held on:
- Thursday, March 18: 5-8 p.m.
- Friday, March 19: 11 a.m. â€“ 8 p.m.
- Saturday, March 20: 11 a.m. â€“ 6 p.m.
- Sunday, March 21: Noon â€“ 6 p.m.
The event has a $5 tasting fee, which is applied toward a purchase of a bottle of wine. Sherrill reminds customers to dress warmly, as E.B. Foote is a working (and cool…literally) winery.
E.B. Foote Winery is located at 127-B SW 153rd St. in Burien, and is open for tasting Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-8 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
