We miss Pat Lakey up here on Slug Gulch Road but we’re grateful that her writing still graces the pages of the Mountain Democrat.
Her story about the MORE Art & Wine event was extremely effective in publicizing the event and was very generous in its description of the history of the Slug Gulch Red wine that was auctioned off Saturday night. Oakstone Winery has been an active supporter of these events since its founding, and we (the Smiths and the Ryans) were proud once again to be part of the success of the event.
Oakstone’s new owner, Liz Ryan, was in attendance and we understand that the case of Slug Gulch Red raised $650 at auction as part of the overall contributions to a very worthwhile cause — it shows how journalism and business can cooperate to create a substantial benefit for a good cause. We hope there will be an opportunity to recap the details of the event and credit all the supporters of MORE who helped make it a success.
Founder, Oakstone Winery
