Thank You TIS Wine Tasting Guests, Volunteers, Wineries & Food Sponsors!

A big thank you to everyone who attended the TIS Wine Tasting & Spring Social! We had a wonderful turn out, great wine, and lots of support for our Library Media Center.

A special thank you to our Wine Tasting Committee (Chair Kathy Guilfoyle, Paula Prince, Martha Koerner, Teri Harper and Lee Rahr) who worked countless hours to make this event possible, to the many parents who contributed as event night volunteers and to Laura Hippensteel and Mark Usher for assisting with registration!

Thank you also to our six wonderful wineries who are sharing a percentage of all sales with the school: Patton Valley Vineyards, Grochau Cellars, Cana's Feast, Brooks Winery, Seven of Hearts and Phelps Creek Vineyards. Next time you reach for a bottle of wine, remember these folks and their support of TIS!

Finally, many thanks to our generous food sponsors including: Food In Bloom, Tails and Trotters, Beast, Grand Central Bakery, Rock Creek Corner, Global Raw, Ohana Cafe, Mika Sushi, Kaeserei Champignon, the Kosaris Family and Martha Koerner!
