Help people living in Lake Stevens with disabilities.Help those with disabilities living in Lake Stevens and the surrounding area by attending Off to the Races! 2020 Wine and Dine. This fun event will take place on Friday, March 20, 2020 starting at 6 p.m., doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Come on out to Thomas Family Farm, located at 9010 Marsh Road for dinner, drinks, and the mystery wine auction. Tickets are $50 per person and include dinner and two drinks.

Bring along a bottle of wine that is wrapped and uniquely decorated so that its contents are a mystery. Choose a Star Wars theme, dress up the wine bottle as your favorite animal, put a sweater on it, or cover it with candy. The possibilities are endless. If you do not feel like decorating a bottle, bring one anyway to become a part of the “Instant Wine Cellar” auction item. Bid on the bottles of wine, enter raffles, and enjoy a sweet treat from the dessert dash, which is sponsored by Whistle Stop Sweet Shop. Come dressed up like you are headed to a Nascar event, the Tour De France, or Derby. It is lots of fun to dress up, but you do not have to.

Proceeds from this event will benefit Sherwood. This organization helps advocate for and create equitable opportunities for those living in Lake Stevens and surrounding areas with disabilities. This organization has been around since 1957. It started with eight families who had children who were excluded from public education because of their disabilities. Society has advanced and conditions have improved, but there is still plenty of work to be done to advocate for things like early diagnosis and accessible employment for people with disabilities.
