Corks & Crush is a signature event that benefits patients of Good Samaritan Hospital. Featuring wine tasting, live music, an elegant dinner and a fundraising auction, the gala attracts supporters and wine aficionados throughout the South Puget Sound region. Five hundred movers and shakers enjoyed the music of brothers Chris and Mike Egan. Jim Jungers served as emcee and the auctioneer was the Stokes Auction Group. The 19th annual Pierce County event raised $701,450 (a record amount raised in one night)! Of that, $253,000 was raised from Fund a Need to benefit the children’s therapy unit. All other proceeds support Good Samaritan programs and services.
