A springtime gala featuring elegant wines, dinner, dancing and a dynamic auction to benefit MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital

Saturday, May 17, 2014 Raise your glass for the Children’s Therapy Unit!

Hosted by

Dear Guests and Patrons, Thank you for joining us for our eighth annual Northwest Corks & Crush, benefiting Good Samaritan Foundation. Our event committee has worked tirelessly, alongside our wonderful community partners, to create a delightful experience. Please sample the finest wines from Washington and California, and savor gourmet appetizers while you do your best to win your favorite items from the silent auction tables! Later, after a delicious dinner provided by Snuffin’s Catering, please plan to raise your paddles high during the live auction. We hope many of you will then dance the night away to the music of the Dusty 45s. While enjoying this wine-tasting gala, let’s remember to raise our glasses to the Children’s Therapy Unit at Good Samaritan Hospital. We are so fortunate to have this remarkable facility right here in our hometown of Puyallup. The CTU is the largest Pediatric Neurodevelopmental Center in Washington, and home to a team of renowned pediatric specialists who provide world-class therapy to the kids in our community. When we raise our paddles, it will be for the critical cause of Assistive Technology. Typically, when children have challenges interacting successfully within their environment (home, school, playground), therapists can work with their bodies to help them adapt. Assistive Technology does the opposite; it adapts the environment to the child so they can do those little things that matter so much. With Assistive Technology, the children of the CTU can ride bikes, sit at the dining table, swing on a swing and play with their toys. There are currently 219 projects in the works, at an estimated cost of $165,000, that will assist 200 unique kids in need of these customized tricycles, bicycles, swings, strollers, and communication devices. Insurance does not cover the expense of inventing and fabricating the devices and equipment that allow children to participate in family activities – and to just be kids. Assistive Technology is funded by our generous donors including those of you here tonight. We are especially grateful to our presenting sponsor, Skanska, our hosting sponsor, Washington State Fair, our corporate sponsors, and you. Thank you for your support of the Children’s Therapy Unit! Cheers! Greg Gustafson, Co-chair Gustafson Insurance

Masters of Ceremonies

Chris Egan & Mike Egan Brothers Chris and Mike Egan grew up in the shadow of Good Samaritan. As Northwood and Edgemont grads, the boys spent much of their youth loitering in the parking lot of Hi Ho Shopping Center, eating at Hoagy’s Corner and practicing Space Invaders at Tiffany’s Skate Inn. Early employment did not look promising for either. Chris opted for naps in the field rather than full flats of raspberries when faced with his first valley job. Mike was the first major accident at Enchanted Village/Wild Waves, when a roller coaster “mysteriously” ran over his leg, while dressed as an elf. The two did manage to graduate from Puyallup High School (PHS). Chris found success in tennis and basketball, lettering eight times for the Vikings. Mike served as Puyallup’s Student Body President and won a state championship in debate. Chris went on to play tennis for the Lutes and received PLU’s “Man of the Year Award” his senior year. Mike became a Husky and was elected the UW’s Student Body President. Chris then began a career in broadcast news that led him from Medford, Oregon to Boise, Idaho to his current role as KING 5’s sports reporter and anchor. Along the way, Chris was awarded Oregon’s “Sportscaster of the Year” and has won several local Emmy Awards. He’s hosted the Seahawks Phone Zone, Sounders Weekly, and Northwest Sports Tonight, and was on the field this year to cover the Hawks Super Bowl win in New Jersey. His greatest sports moments though may be coaching South Hill Sports teams for his kids- Madison, Austin and Luke’s sports teams on the South Hill. After college, Mike spent a decade in Washington D.C., as an aid to Congressman Norm Dicks and Senator Patty Murray. He now works as Microsoft’s Director of Global Corporate Affairs. Mike has served on the Good Samaritan Hospital Board and the Washington State Fair Foundation Board. He is currently the President of the University of Washington Alumni Association, and has spoken at 10 Puyallup High School Commencements. An amateur comic, Mike was voted by Congressional colleagues “Funniest Person in DC” and has opened up for Jerry Seinfeld. He is now developing new “material” from his 5-year-old daughter Mabel and 2-year-old son Jack. Both brothers married up, Chris convincing Melanie Phair to stick with him since the PHS junior prom of 1990. Mike, meanwhile, coaxed Karyn Kelly to leave DC for the constant sun of Seattle. Six Gore-Tex jackets later, she has not left. Chris and Mike are proud products of the “biggest city to both start and end with a P.” Their greatest memories have revolved around the people of this community: Daffodil parades, softball championships at the Rec Center, Puyallup Fair concerts and epic pickle ball matches in the Egan backyard. Though Chris and Mike enjoy healthy egos, their parents Barb and Ed Egan readily admit that the other brother Brian is the funniest in the family, and their daughter Jenny is actually their favorite child.

Bottle - 1 of 25 NORTHWEST

2014 P R E S E NTE D BY

TASTING NOTES Our first Merlot grapes ripened nearly two weeks later than average this vintage, and the longer hang time benefited Merlot’s intrinsic rich fruitiness. As the traditional foundation of Clos de Betz (675 this bottling), Merlot always provides its substance and texture, and with the additional hang time, these are highlighted I 2011. The delayed ripening led to supple aromas and the fine depth of flavor. Ripe black cherry, mocha and wood spice, are the hallmarks of this wine and are reflected in the wine. The additional dimension of this vintage is its ageability. It reminds of us the Clos de Betz from 1999, another cool vintage, which at 12 years old is drinking beautifully. Both the 1999 and 2011 are reminiscent of a well-crafted, top flight St. Emilion. This 2011, with the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, has the vitality and structure to go the distance. During future cellaring, look for emerging aromas of cherry, dark plum and cocoa powder, while the palate softens to a harmonious, creamy texture. WINE MAKING NOTES The 2011 vintage in Washington’s Columbia Valley started off cool, the second year in a row, about 5-10% cooler than average through most of July. Then August hit, with the temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s; it turned the corner on our vineyards as temperatures forced the berries to color up, accumulate sugar and move from a marginal to a very fine vintage. Surprisingly, the warmest temperatures came after Labor Day. While coastal California vineyards slogged through buckets of harvest rain, our September and October turned hot and cloudless. Autumn carried on the work August had started and yielded wines of definitions, vibrancy and texture. The implication for our red Bordeaux varieties was all positive: this radiant autumn allowed them additional hang time to develop plenty of flavor and ripeness. We harvested our last grapes early Halloween morning! We were once again reminded of one favorite axioms: it’s not just how much heat you get, but how you get your heat. VARIETAL COMPOSITION • 67% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot • 35% Red Mountain, 35% Horse Heaven Hills, 30% Yakima Valley • 100% French Oak Barrques, 65% New, 35% One Fill • Serve Cool, 60-62F. Best from 2016 through 2036

14 FUND A NEED Join us in support of the critical work of the CTU. Following a brief video, the auctioneer will invite you to raise your bid card at a level that is meaningful to you.

$10,000 $5,000 $2,500 $1,000 $500 $250 $100 Right in the heart of Puyallup, across the street from the Dally Tower at MultiCare Good Samaritan is a building affectionately known as “The Ark” where miracles happen every day. It’s the Children’s Therapy Unit. While CTU’s mission seems rather simple, the results are anything but: CTU empowers children and families to discover their possibilities. Tonight we raise our paddles for the Assistive Technology Program (ATP). Typically, when children have challenges interacting successfully within their environment, therapists can work with their bodies to help them adapt. ATP does the opposite; it adapts the environment to the child. The success of ATP is the team that makes it happen. Therapists work on the skills; technicians work on the assistive technology. While the therapist’s goal is to increase patient skills over time, the ATP’s goal is to provide patient success through equipment modification. The team at the CTU selects appropriate commercial products, such as tricycles, swings and dining room chairs, and modifies them, or at times, completely invents and fabricates something from scratch — to allow the patient greater independence. Assistive technology is entirely funded by philanthropy. Insurance does not cover the design, materials or construction needed to invent or adapt equipment to assist a child in navigating his environment. Tonight you, our donors are funding discovery – the discovery of what is possible for a child to achieve. It takes innovation, collaboration and $165,000 to provide assistive technology for 200 children per year. With the support of Northwest Corks & Crush sponsors and participants, we can continue to fund critical services for our community’s families. With your help we can help kids be kids, providing them the tools needed to talk, walk, and perform everyday tasks by themselves.

19 Speakeasy Victor Ostrovsky’s tantalizing art depicts mystical and otherworldly images evoked by his military background, yet peppered with a love of art. Hats, gloves, scarves and umbrellas hide the identities of his inscrutable figures, provoking and teasing our imaginations with visual portrayals of adventure and intrigue. Tonight we showcase Speakeasy and the story behind this piece: The closest thing to the public’s image of a spy is called a combatant. It’s the most dangerous job in espionage because combatants work undercover in enemy countries with little support. When things go seriously wrong, and escape is impossible, a combatant will head for a Speakeasy. It’s a legitimate business owned by the combatant’s own intelligence agency, and its only purpose is to keep combatants from being arrested and hung. Inside, he’ll be hidden, protected, and given a new identity. It is all the speakeasy is there for. When he walks back out, he will do so as a different person. Pair this sultry 3.5’ x 5’ image with 2 sizzling red hot Milo bonded leather chairs from the Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse to complete your own in-home Speakeasy setting. This package includes: • Speakeasy print by Victor Ostrovsky • Autographed copy of his book, “By Way of Deception: The Making and Unmaking of a Mossan Officer”, by Victor Ostrovsky and Claire Hoy. • 2 Milo bonded red leather chairs • NWCC Commemorative Magnum Thank you: Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse, Bryan Stowe, Friends of Northwest Corks & Crush VALUE: $4,000

The Automobiles of Northwest Corks & Crush As much a part of the event as the fabulous wines we pour are the fantastic classic and unique cars we display. We extend a huge thanks to the owners who brought their cars tonight! From the LeMay Family Collections: 1949 Kaiser-Frazer Deluxe This beauty is number 17 of 42 Kaiser Deluxe convertibles produced between 1949 and 1950. The Kaiser-Frazer Corporation was the result of a partnership between automobile executive Joseph W. Frazer and industrialist Henry J. Kaiser. The Kaiser brought an advanced front wheel drive design, while the Frazer boasted an upscale conventional rear wheel drive car. The production costs and the limited time available prevented the front wheel drive design from entering production, so the new 1947 Kaiser and Frazer shared bodies and power trains. This vehicle was restored at the Harold E. LeMay Restoration Shop and was the feature car for the 15th Annual LeMay Car Show in 1992. Brand new, this car sold for $3,195. From Dennison International Motorsports 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz The 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible was one of two “volume� Eldos available from the manufacturer that year. There were 1,800 of the $7,286 Biarritzes made. Underhood was an over-square, bored-out 365-cid V-8 good for 325 horsepower. This was the most potent V-8 yet offered in a Cadillac -- and a good thing, too, as the Biarritz weighed 4,930 pounds. The styling theme for this year saw fins more pointed and graceful than before, and happily unencumbered by the pod-like taillight treatment.


1966 Ford Cobra The Cobra, also called the Shelby Cobra, was produced from 1962 to 1967. Carroll Shelby, the car’s designer, originally approached Chevrolet to build his car. Not wanting to have competition for the Corvette, they turned him down so he approached Ford, who took it to compete with the Corvette. Shelby wanted the AC Cobras to be “Corvette-Beaters” and at nearly 500 lb (227 kg) less than the Chevrolet Corvette, the lightweight roadster accomplished that goal at Riverside International Raceway on 2 February 1963. Driver Dave MacDonald piloted CSX2026 past a field of Corvettes, Jaguars, Porsches, and Maseratis and recorded the Cobra’s historic first-ever victory. From Goodman Racing 1953 Chevrolet Corvette As any astronomer will tell you, amazing things can happen when the stars line up just right. And in the early 1950s at General Motors, big stars were lining up behind a brand-new model destined to change the sports-car world forever. In January 1953, the first Corvette rolled out of production on onto the streets. Not only was this stunning roadster American, it wasn’t made of steel. Instead, the elegant, flowing bodywork was sculpted in fiberglass. Only 300 were crafted in that first year with a price tag of $3,498.
