Neighbor’s Blend Event raises $30,000 for Chelan Valley Housing Trust

Second Annual Event hosted by The Landing, Tipsy Canyon Winery & Navarre Coulee Vineyards

Posted

CHELAN - Searchlights lit up the night sky as The Landing rolled out the red carpet to welcome guests to an elegant evening. This black-tie event celebrated the second vintage release of “Neighbors Blend II,” a varietal blend created in collaboration with Tipsy Canyon Winery and Navarre Coulee Vineyards. The two wineries blended one barrel of each of their wine to a great, delectable, full-bodied blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Cabernet France. The Landing served a gourmet 4-course dinner paired with wines from the respective wineries. Several local businesses donated silent auction items, and many of the 80 attendees contributed by “raising the paddle.”

“We are very grateful for the support that our local business owners and residents are contributing to “Framing the Future of Our Valley”, said Scott Meyers, Executive Director of the Chelan Valley Housing Trust. Our non-profit community land trust builds affordable homeownership for local wage earners in the Chelan Valley who earn 80% to 120% of the area median income.

To create affordable housing, only the home is sold. The trust retains ownership of the land by granting a 99-year lease. When the owner sells, it must be sold to another eligible family. This ensures that the home will always be affordable for future buyers.
