Personalized Wine Labels
“This was a hugely successful project for Laurelhurst Elementary! The students really enjoyed working on the artwork for the wine labels, and we raised almost $8,000 from the sale of the wines. Northwest Cellars was very easy to work with, and the quality of their wines is excellent. The money from this project will support underfunded projects like math tutors, reading tutors, and expanding art, science, and music curricula.”
