Gracious Grape Fundraiser at Bellevue Wines in WEst Vancouver - Weekend to end Breast Cancer

Aug 12, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Gracious Grape members love their wine - and what better way to share that passion than with a passion for life. Bellevue Wines in West Vancouver helped host the group for their special "Weekend to End Breast Cancer" fundraiser that included wine tastings, silent auction prizes, fabulous food and live music. Congrat to all.
