Tacoma Wine Classic

image detail of barrel and wine bottlePlease join us for the 2014 Tacoma Wine Classic on May 17. 

Thank you to everyone who made TWC 2013 a huge success. Tacoma Community College's Student Center was transformed into a Tuscan garden for a night. Guests enjoyed wine and Italian-themed fare and helped us raise $133,000 to help TCC students. 

Since 2000 the Tacoma Wine Classic, TCC Foundation's signature event, has raised over $1 million. TWC proceeds fund scholarships and emergency grants for deserving students. Over half of TCC students require financial assistance to attend college. 

TWC 2014 will not disappoint. This year we are changing things up a bit: We'll move to the Athletic Center, Bldg. 20, where we will be transported to Spain for tapas, wine and other delights. We will again offer excellent Washington wines, exciting auction items and other opportunities to support students who are trying to improve their lives.
