40 Dollars. 40 Wines.
Wine Tasting, Live Music, Silent Auction and Raffle

In its 26th year, the Alpen Wine Fest continues to grow, drawing over  650 people from the local communities, as well as the Reno, San Francisco, and Sacramento areas. Together we raised raised $38,939 for our lifestyle empowerment programs!

This year was amazing, and the wineries were top notch. All pouring their best wines, some can't even be purchased in a store. As attendees moved through their favorites, you could see the hop in their step from the live music playing throughout the village and the chatter of which items at the silent auction they were hoping to win. As the day wound down, some headed to local restaurants to fill their bellies and others to the parking lot, arms full with cases of wine and goodies from the auction and raffle. If they are as happy as they looked, they are already looking forward to the 27th Annual Alpen Wine Fest in 2015!

Thanks to the Squaw Valley, our amazing volunteers and all of the donors for making this the best event yet!

Salute!
Morgan Landers, Can Do MS Special Events Manager
