Troll Olympics

In partnership with Vintage Vine, February 26th was our 3rd annual Sippin' for the Seven wine tasting. We moved to a bigger venue and the crowd was there, despite the snowy weather in Cle Elum. Thanks for helping us raise $7,270 for the chimps! Click below to view a photo montage from the event.
