The Annual Winemaker’s Dinner is held at the Red Lion Inn and Casino. The Winemaker’s Dinner was the initial fundraiser and the means of establishing the Boys and Girls Clubs of Elko. Now in its 22nd year, it continues providing operating funds for the Club; this event raises over $200,000 for Elko’s youth to ensure no child is turned away. Our event hosts approximately 180 guests with a six-course, gourmet dinner that will be paired with specific wines that matches each meal perfectly. This event holds a live auction, silent auction and raffle.
The Red Lion Hotel & Casino has made this event a success by being the major sponsor for 21 years, committing over $15,000 annually for a total commitment to the youth of Elko of over $300,000. The Red Lion Hotel & Casino has donated the facility, staff, and dinner since inception. Breakthru Beverage is also a sponsor of the event by supplying the wine every year to make this the top event in Elko.
