“Wine’d Up” Gourmet Dinner&Auction in Whistler

Whistler Search and Rescue Society (WSAR) will hold their fifteenth annual gourmet dinner and auction, “Wine’d Up”, on Saturday, October 18th, 2014.

 Attendees at this popular event will enjoy an evening of outstanding cuisine prepared by five of Whistler’s renowned chefs. The five-course dinner will be paired with wine from Washington State’s acclaimed Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, generously supported by the winery and the United States Consulate. The evening will help fund the critically important work of Whistler’s Search and Rescue organization.

 “Wine’d Up is the single largest source of revenue for our very busy volunteer team,” says Brad Sills, President of WSAR. “Without the support of all the persons who contribute to making this event the success that it is, Whistler SAR would simply not be in a position to fulfill its mandate. The ever-increasing costs of maintaining rescue quality equipment and training regimes is a constant burden in the face of uncertain funding sources.”

This year marks the event’s 15 years in support of Whistler Search and Rescue and with over $480,000 raised since 2000, the October gourmet dinner and auction will aspire to surpass the $550,000 mark!

Cuisine from the 5 local chefs will be paired with premium wines from Chateau Ste. Michelle.

  • Steve Bjormark, Executive Events Chef, Whistler Blackcomb
  • Jeff Park, Chef de Cuisine, Araxi Restaurant and Bar
  • Tory Martindale, Executive Chef, Four Seasons Resort Whistler
  • Paul Moran, Executive Chef, Nita Lake Lodge
  • Dustin Harkness, Executive Chef, Whistler Cooks Catering

The event will take place at Dusty’s Bar+Grill at Whistler Creekside. Reception and Hors D’Oeuvres at 6pm. Tickets $170+GST on sale September 1. For tickets, call Whistler Blackcomb at 1-800-766-0449 ext 2.
