On May 13, 2006, you are invited to join celebrity chairman Richard Karn (television's Family Feud and Home Improvement) as the Husky Band Foundation invites local, regional and international wineries to come to the Dempsey Indoor and Toast to the Northwest.

At the Toast to the Northwest you will be invited to “Raise a Glass and Raise Funds” through this combined wine festival and competition featuring over 400 different wines from 140 wineries. All proceeds will directly benefit the Husky Marching Band. By attending this event you will help the band raise the funds needed to keep the Husky Band at away games, looking sharp and playing top quality instruments.

The event will run from 3:00pm to 8:30pm on Saturday, May 13 in the Dempsey Indoor, just northeast of Husky Stadium. The cost to attend is $40 or $60 per person, depending on whether you purchase a “purple” or “gold” ticket. Purple ticket holders may sample all of the “purple label” wines, and gold ticket holders, all of the wines featured at the event (both purple and gold labels). Members of the UW Alumni Association will receive a 20% discount.
To purchase tickets or for more event details, including a list of participating wineries, visit our website at or call event chairman Brent Ruth , at 206-543-2920.

The Toast to the Northwest is a premier international wine festival & competition designed to highlight wines from across the globe to Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The Toast will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2006 at the Dempsey Indoor Facility at the University of Washington.
