The Point to Success Fundraising Brunch begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, and costs $100 per person. Individuals may register by visiting https://formtool.wsu.edu/ccb/Signup/index.castle?formid=50.

All proceeds will be dedicated entirely to student support and faculty development to improve business education in the Tri-Cities.

The event features Tim Hanni, Master of Wine and author, who will speak on “Separating Wine Facts from Fancy.” Hanni is the author of “Why You Like the Wines You Like” and has analyzed relationships with wine preferences correlating to a dislike of loud restaurants, an affinity for sushi, a dislike of cilantro, sensitivity to tags in shirts and a mother’s susceptibility to morning sickness.

“You won’t want to miss this informative and amusing presentation to find out why,” said Robert Harrington, WSU Tri-Cities Carson College of Business academic director.

The event also features a wine grab and live auction with a variety of unique packages, of which some include:

  • Several night stays at various vacation destinations in the Pacific Northwest
  • Gourmet meals and tastings
  • A family photo session
  • A tour of the U.S.S. Triton with a meal for eight
  • A full-day personal tour of vineyards and wineries with two of the state’s leading experts on grape cultivation and winemaking

“Enjoy a gratifying event featuring a distinguished brunch, interact with our talented business students and learn about the future of the Carson College of Business at WSU Tri-Cities,” Harrington said. “What better way to support our local business education than with a fun morning that will delight the senses?”
