SEATTLE-A special wine and cheese tasting event to benefit Gift for Life will be held on Monday, Aug. 15, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Pacific Market Center during the Summer Gift and Home Accessories Show that began here yesterday.

Buyers are invited to sample wines and cheeses from Washington’s and Oregon’s premier vineyards and cheese makers while enjoying live Latin jazz by the Fred Hoadley Trio. A suggested $10 donation is requested to benefit Gift For Life/Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids (DIFFA). Gift for Life is a charitable partnership between the gift, home accessory, and stationery industries raising funds in support of HIV/AIDS prevention.

The event is sponsored by Schott Zwiesel, Esquin Wine Merchants, Beecher’s Cheeses, Fred Hoadley Trio and Pacific Market Center’s Independent Sales Association. It culminates a week of new PMC Cooks culinary events being offered to buyers during Market, which runs through Aug. 16.
