Arlington Education Foundation hosts wine tasting

ARLINGTON — Community members with a passion for wine are encouraged to come to the Arlington Education Foundation’s second annual wine tasting event.

The fundraiser, which benefits programs and projects within the Arlington School District, will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, at Magnolia Hall, located at 225 Third Avenue, Arlington.

Tickets can be purchased either at the door or in advance by calling 360-435-1337 or e-mailing

Price is $50.

Participants will be able to “travel” between Washington state and Spain during the event, which will feature a number of wines from both locales.

Event attendees will be able to sample paired tastes during the fundraiser, and organizers are giving away door prizes.

Wine will also be available to purchase by the bottle or the case.

Proceeds from the wine tasting will benefit the Arlington Education Foundation. Founded in 2002, the organization raises and disburses funds for the school district.

In the past, the 501(c)(3) foundation has contributed funds to the Byrnes Performing Arts Center, the elementary choral library, the Arlington High School video production/broadcasting program and for technology teacher stations at Post Middle School.

A project for the 2010-11 school year has not yet been selected.
