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.

Does winding through Woodinville’s wine country sound like a fantastic way to spend a day? You’re right — it is.
A number of wineries have bloomed in the bursting local industry along the northwestern tip of Lake Washington. When world-famous Chateau Ste. Michelle winery settled in the area in 1976, it brought with it a gradual wave of other wineries and, of course, wine lovers.
Currently, more than 100 wineries call the Woodinville area home. Now, you can experience those on the Woodinville Wine Country shuttle, every first and third Saturday from July 5 to Sept. 20.
