Debuts & Discoveries 2016 Recap

12764634_10153418810872215_1477645279244550557_oThis past Saturday, hundreds of people flocked to Magnuson Park to attend the annual Windermere-sponsored Debuts & Discoveries event. For the third year in a row, Windermere was excited to be the lead sponsor of Debuts & Discoveries, held by the University Sunrise Rotary Club, and benefitting Outdoors for All and its mission to enrich quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through outdoor recreation.
Around 800 people were in attendance and $25K was raised, all going to local goodness. Due to the success of the event, Windermere is able to fund a $10,000 grant to Outdoors for All. The remainder of the dollars raised will go to the University Sunrise Rotary Foundation which funds local and international community charities.12771468_10153418811207215_1896303887544303512_o
We are so grateful to the three Windermere offices that provided our primary sponsorship: Wedgwood, Sand Point, and Northgate. This sponsorship not only did great things for the community, but also provided many Windermere agents, friends, and clients with a stellar evening sampling local beverages and food trucks. The Windermere Way is all about giving back to the community and having fun at the same time, so this event was the perfect way to keep the spirit strong!

Debuts & Discoveries Recap

This past Saturday, hundreds of people flocked to Magnuson Park to attend the Windermere-sponsored Debuts & Discoveries event. The event was held by University Sunrise Rotary Club, which benefited the University District Food Bank and Pack For Kids Program. There was a plentiful amount of vendors, offering both food and drinks. Here’s what stood out to us:

Chaicider From Schilling Cider – If you’re into Chai, this cider might as well have been made for you. It was one of those drinks where every time you tasted it, it just got better and better. Put down the beer and wine, because this is your new official “go-to” drink.

Wicked Pies Food Truck: If we had to pick one vendor where the line never seemed to get shorter, this would be it. Not that the other food vendors weren’t equally as yummy, there’s just something about pizza that calls to the masses. Wicked Pies pizza was the perfect combo of non-greasy, fresh toppings, and crust. Let’s face it, pizza is catnip for humans; we’ll never turn a slice (or two, or three) down.

Whitewall Brewing’s Oatmeal Pale Ale: Straight out of the gates, this is the first drink we tried. Besides the fact that the owners, Sean and Aaron, were extremely friendly, this pale ale was dangerously tasty.

The cherry on top of the event? Everyone got to take home these incredibly classy wine glasses. Windermere is honored to have sponsored and taken part in this awesome event and hope to do it all again next year!

Come and see the rising stars of the beverage biz at the 8th Annual Debuts & Discoveries event on March 21.

Who: Hosted by the University Sunrise Rotary for the University Foodbank

What: Discover the newest wineries, distilleries, breweries, cideries, and food trucks!

Where: Hangar 30 @ Maguson Park (Laurelhurst)

When: March 21 from 5-8pm

Why: One never needs a reason to throw a party with plentiful amounts of food and drink. HOWEVER, the funds raised at this event provide “Packs For Kids,” a program that provides nutritious meals to children who are at risk of going hungry on weekends. If those two reasons aren’t good enough, then it’s safe to say you probably don’t have a soul.

Tickets are $30 in advance and available at www.usrotary.org.

For the second year in a row, local Windermere offices—Wedgwood, Sand Point and Northgate—have banded together to be the primary sponsor of this community event. For questions email NancyBolin@Windermere.com.
