New Woodward Canyon Cab to help children in need
LOWDEN, Wash. – One of Washington’s oldest and most highly acclaimed wineries is giving back.
Woodward Canyon Winery in the Walla Walla Valley is featuring artwork by Taras Lesko that owners Darcey and Rick Small purchased at the annual Auction of Washington Wines. The artwork is featured on Woodward Canyon’s newly released 2010 Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon.
The auction benefits Children’s Hospital in Seattle, and this particular artwork, which features 65 handmade paper roses, is dedicated to those who live with cystic fibrosis. The artwork was created in part by the Cramer family, whose children Christalin and Josiah have cystic fibrosis.
Part of the proceeds from this wine, which retails for $54, will be donated back to Children’s Hospital to support children with cystic fibrosis.
