For the past 31 years, Whitefish has hosted the annual Whitefish Tradition of the Project Whitefish Wine and Food Fest. This year’s event, themed May the 4th be with you, will take place at Grouse Mountain Lodge on Wednesday, May 4 from 6-9 p.m.
The annual event raises much needed funds to support children in our community through sports and the performing arts. All proceeds from this benefit are donated to Project Whitefish Kids, the organization that operates the Smith Fields Sports Complex for multiple sports teams, and the Whitefish Theater Company.
The food is always excellent with a good sampling of cuisines from local restaurants including Indah Sushi, Logan’s Grill at Grouse, Ed McGrew’s Barbeque, Craggy Range, Last Chair Kitchen & Bar, Fleur Bake Shop and Whitefish Lake Restaurant. Fun Beverage always makes tasting a delight, offering a wonderful selection of wines and introducing new varieties to sample. Montana Coffee Traders will provide plenty of coffee for everyone, and craft beer will also be provided by Jeremiah Johnson and Bonsai Brewery.
A silent, live auction highlights the evening with several exciting items available this year. Auction items include Golden Knights Las Vegas package, cooking class for 10 at Trovare, Essex weekend getaway, private movie night, sports equipment, wine, gift certificates restaurant tickets, theater tickets and more. Local businesses and individuals donated all of these items.
As a special treat, John Dunnigan and David Walburn will play music during the evening and act as entertainers for the event.
Seating is limited to 150. Tickets are $100 per person and include all food and beverages. You can also buy an entire table for ten for $1000 or sponsor a table for $500 that comes with two tickets.
