Chef Jason recently took part in one of the most impactful local causes that he’s had the privilege to be a part of for the last several years. The Auction of Washington Wines pulls together its immense resources and generous partners every August to raise funds and awareness for Children’s Hospital as well as the education and progress of the Washington wine industry. This year, Chef Jason was able to partner Miller’s Guild with Washington winemakers in hosting a winemaker dinner, auctioned off experiences to preview his new Bellevue projects, The Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest, as well as be part of an auction package with the esteemed winemaker Bob Betz and Westland Distillery.
Over $40K in donations later, and a host of memorable experiences, the $3 million total raised over the 3-days of events is what really makes the difference for the main benefactor, Children’s Hospital. For Chef Jason, it’s not just another night and another menu, it’s much more that resonates for him in supporting such a meaningful and very worthwhile cause, and one that he looks forward to year after year.
