Aero Methow Fundraising Gala

Aero Methow Fundraising Gala

Aero Methow Rescue Service is honored to partner with Sun Mountain Lodge in a celebration of 50 years of service and their vision for the future. After enjoying appetizers, a delicious dinner, and dessert, Sun Mountain will be auctioning a selection of their Library Wines; which is a wine that has been aged more than 10 years to perfection and not readily available. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Aero Methow Rescue Service, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit.

Library Wine Auction to follow dinner featuring cellared wines aged 10+ years from the Pacific Northwest Wineries! Why buy Library Wine?

  • Rarity – It is unlikely a person will get these vintages for purchase again.
  • Carefully Crafted – Library wines have been stored properly and authentically preserved.
  • Age Variety – Seek vintages for milestone celebrations.
  • Value – Great as wine cellar trophies.
  • Amazing Taste – These wines have reached their peak maturity.

Tickets are required to attend this event. The deadline to purchase a ticket for this event is Saturday, March 28th, 2020.

$75 entry fee includes champagne & hors d’oeuvres reception and dinner.

More than 55 years ago, friends and visionaries Dr. William J Henry and Jack Barron began to make their visions a reality. Dr. Henry and a group of dedicated community-oriented volunteers started Aero Methow Rescue Service and Jack Barron started construction on Sun Mountain Lodge. In 1968 they started serving our community and over the past 50 years have evolved and continue to meet the needs of the Methow Valley. We are forever grateful for their vision and dedication to our valley.

Sun Mountain is honored to host this celebration and vision for Aero Methow Rescue Service.

Please dress as formal or casual as you would prefer!

All ages.
Tickets are non-refundable.
