Celebrate the Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation – Friday May 10

Please join the Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation (FOLF) on Friday, May 10th for a fabulous evening of wine tasting and gourmet, wood-fired pizzas at JM Cellars in Woodinville. This annual Laurelhurst tradition has been our way of saying THANK YOU to the families dedicated to supporting our children through the FOLF endowment. Started in 1998 by neighbors, alumni and Laurelhurst parents, the FOLF fund reached $1 million in assets last year allowing it to consistently distribute funds to our school through significant grants and allowing the PTA to support other enrichment programs that may otherwise be cut. Your generous donations are needed to support our school now as well as into the future, just as other’s have done for us.

The night will begin at Laurelhurst Elementary as we meet at 5:45 PM to board the “party buses” to JM Cellars. At the winery, we will be met by the John and Peggy Bigelow, Laurelhurst alumni and owners of JM Cellars, for a private tour of the winery and its spectacular setting. We will enjoy their critically-acclaimed boutique wine while eating gourmet pizzas baked on-site. We will return to Laurelhurst Elementary leaving JM Cellars by 11:30 pm on the same buses. We hope you can join us!

More information about the 545 Campaign and FOLF can be found here. To RSVP, please contact Kris Faucett at kris@cofen.com.

545 Wine Tasting Dinner Is Friday, April 29th, 6-10:00 pm

Don’t miss the bus!

Every spring, the Foundation celebrates its 545 Donors with a special night out. On April 29th, we are headed for an evening of complimentary wine tasting at the charming and delightful JM Cellars in Woodinville.

If you are not already a 545 Family, become one today and join us for our annual donor-appreciation event. 545 is the flagship fundraising program of the Foundation. 545 Donors agree to give $500 each year for 5 years.

Free transportation to the winery is provided from the school. Catch up with friends on the bus before settling in for a night to remember at JM Cellars.

Winemakers John and Peggy Bigelow will treat you to a private tour of the facilities and invite you to taste the many varietals offered. They specialize in handcrafted blends of handpicked grapes from low-yield vineyards. They age their special blends in French oak barrels. Choose your favorites and order a few for your cellar—a portion of your purchase will support the Foundation.

Veraci will have a wood-fired clay oven on site and be baking authentic Neapolitan pizza to go with that glass of Bramble Bump Red in your hand.

So raise a glass, have a slice, and take in the heavenly scent of the evergreen forest and beckoning candlelit interiors of JM Cellars.

This is a really fun night—Don’t miss the bus!
