Chelan winery to host benefit concert

August 21, 2014

Aug. 21--In light of the recent fires that took many homes in the surrounding areas, communities from around Washington have shown an outpouring of support for families affected by the fires. Rio Vista Wines is lending a hand by hosting a benefit to help their neighbors. We think that's awesome, and if you do too, here's everything you need to know to get involved.

What: The benefit concert is much more than just a concert, with plenty to do and plenty of ways to donate. The band Crisis will provide the soundtrack to the afternoon. The fires were especially hard on Crisis' lead singer, who lost his home in Alta Lake. There will be no cover for the show, but a $5 donation is encouraged. Throughout the afternoon a silent auction will be held. Bidders can win everything from dinners, golf packages and winery tours to a truckload of top soil delivered to their garden. Here's the best part: 20 percent of wine sales, 50 percent of dinner sales and 100 percent of auction sales will go to fire relief and aid.

When: 3-6 p.m. Saturday

Where: Rio Vista Wines, 24415 Highway 97, Chelan

Cost: $5 suggested donation for the show and silent auction. Catered dinner is $10.
