Cool Jazz, Clean Water: Wine Tasting Event

Washington Center Lobby

The Cool Jazz/Clean Water event has netted over $250,000 over the past nine years thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, door-busting attendance at the evening wine and beer events, auction donors and bidders, and donations from music-lovers throughout the community. The funds have been used to build international clean water projects, buy and refurbish over 500 instruments which were distributed to four local school district music programs, and to organize and promote a youth leadership training course.

Join us in the lobby to taste wines from througout the Northwest and Europe, and enjoy local Jazz great Syd Potter and his Tentette, a ten piece Jazz ensemble, playing on the main stage!
