This event will be a great time for WIMI members to connect, inspire, unwined and learn something new about our local wines concentrating on the Okanagan. Catherine Ellis will be holding an hour long wine education seminar to allow us all to look, swirl, sniff and taste, to showcase what the Okanagan has to offer.

All ticket donations will be going towards From the Bottom Up Foundation:
From The Bottom Up Foundation is a registered nonprofit providing diaper assistance to the families of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. We find, purchase, receive and distribute different sizes of diapers to agencies within the DTES who already work with and understand the families in need of our services. Since our launch in January of this year, we have distributed over 12 thousand diapers to over 15 families living in the Downtown Eastside. Unlike any other diaper support program in the world, our foundation has focused on not just providing diapers to those in need, but eliminating all of the worries around diapers ENTIRELY. What makes us different is our unique approach. Our Foundation only accepts families into our program if we can 100 percent provide diapers for that child until he or she is potty trained. In doing so, we have the opportunity to build a relationship and trust with these vulnerable families, and can see what impacts can be made when eliminating the stress caused by an insufficient supply of diapers. By removing this worry from the mother’s mind and ensuring that each child has enough diapers to stay healthy and comfortable, we work from the bottom up to provide necessary resources and programs to ensure each family has an equal chance at success.
