Jimmie Heuga Wine Maker Dinner
October 3, 2009

Executive Chef Mary Trimmins and Sous Chef Gene Fulkerson did an amazing job with our 9th annual dinner perfectly matching food to the donated wines. Thanks to Mark Mathis, Jordyn Mathis, Catherine Ohl and everyone else for their help with serving and clean up. The dinner raised more than $2,200 for MS. Thank you everyone.

Mark the date for next year's dinner (tentatively)— October 2, 2010.

And of course, we couldn't have done any of this without our most generous sponsors who each donated 5 bottles of their very excellent wines. Fiji donated 2 cases of water.
