Carrie Orrico, owner of Big Fish Grill, presented a $1,000 check to Katie Fath, of the Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation, July 11.
The money was raised from a wine-tasting event held in the private dining room at The Big Fish Grill in Issaquah on June 24.
The event featured John Bigelow, of JM Cellars in Woodinville. Bigelow presented a select group of his wines to 28 attendees and shared stories about how he entered the wine business, the current wine culture and growing grapes in the state of Washington.
