Every year, Hopelink helps more than 63,000 low-income families and individuals gain stability and the tools and skills needed to exit poverty.
Our success, and our ability to change lives, relies on partnerships with hundreds of corporate and individual supporters; businesses and community members who share our commitment to building a stronger community. Hopelink’s 6th annual Farm Fresh Feast on August 8 is an opportunity for you to join us.
Farm Fresh Feast is an evening of fine food and wine, music and memories. Held at Woodinville’s Columbia Winery, the always popular summertime event includes an opportunity for guests to bid on unique items and experiences during live and silent auctions. Guests also enjoy a spectacular multicourse, locally-sourced one-of-a-kind menu prepared by local celebrity chef John Howie, as well exceptional wines uncorked just for the occasion.
Last year, Hopelink’s Farm Fresh Feast raised $186,000 to help provide food, shelter, heat and hope to young families, seniors, single dads and others in need of support. This year, we hope to help even more people in crisis meet basic needs, while helping others get back on their feet and begin their journey out of poverty.

It’s important for us to give back to our community, because we want to live in a great community that does that.”
– John Howie
Local celebrity chef John Howie’s commitment to this area rivals his commitment to fresh, unique dishes – and that is no small feat. With multiple restaurants, a brewpub and an award-winning craft distillery & tasting room, it’s the food that truly sets Chef Howie apart.
You may know him as the heart and soul of John Howie Steak, or Seastar, or Sport. On this evening, you will come to know him as you would your own personal chef. You will enjoy a menu created just for the evening; a symphony of savory bites and inspired wine pairings that will linger in your memory long after the final toast.
Founded in 1962 as a home winemaking operation among 10 friends, Columbia Winery was destined to become Washington state’s first premium winery. It also was the first in the state to produce vineyard-designate wines, as well as the first Pinot Gris, Syrah and Cabernet Franc wines in Washington.
Today, Columbia Winery merges the spirit of the state’s unique and exceptional vineyards with the innovative curiosity of winemaker Sean Hails. The winery’s pedigree of critically acclaimed wines offers a portfolio of rich and deliciously drinkable offerings from renowned AVAs across the state.
