Southern Wine & Spirits of Pacific Northwest Corporate Social Responsibility

John Klein, Executive Vice President, General Manager of Southern Wine & Spirits of Pacific Northwest (Southern)—encompassing Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Montana—is extremely proud of the large number of Southern team members across all seven states who have offered their volunteer time and donations to a wide range of national, state and local charitable groups. In 2013 and continuing through 2014, Southern has offered support to more than two-dozen different community-based, non-profit organizations across the region.

Columbia Winery Charity Run & Walk—Supporting Seattle Children’s Hospital

For eight years, Matt Haskins, Senior Vice President, Wine for the Pacific Northwest has participated in the Columbia Winery Charity Run & Walk, which benefits the Children’s Hospital in Seattle. In 2013, Southern was one of the single largest independent donor groups of the Charity Run to support families struggling with medical bills. In 2014, Southern employees raised more than $14,000 for the run. The need for uncompensated care grows each year and is expected to exceed more than $100 million this year. Of the 100,000 patients treated at Children’s each year, 65% need financial assistance.

The Columbia Winery Charity Run & Walk is hosted by The Run for Children's Guild. For more information, please visit:

Detlef Schrempf Foundation

In June 2014, Southern donated a selection of wines and spirits from its supplier partners to the 21st Annual Detlef Schrempf Celebrity Gala and Auction. The Detlef Schrempf Foundation serves as a fundraising entity for Northwest children’s charities, enabling organizations to expand their own fundraising efforts.  The foundation’s vision is to assist these organizations in their quest to provide children a better chance at succeeding in life.

Guests of the event included more than 500 local business leaders, celebrities, athletes and philanthropists. Proceeds raised from The Ripple of Giving Gala fund The Healing Center and Inspire Youth Project.

Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery

In 2014, Southern donated to the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery in Spokane, Washington. The mission of the Crisis Nursery is to provide immediate refuge for children and support to strengthen families. This mission evolved from the tragic story of Vanessa Kay Behan, a Spokane girl who died from child abuse injuries at the age of two. Following her death, a group of local business people established the Crisis Nursery so that parents would have a safe place to bring their children in the face of crises.”

The Crisis Nursery provides 24-hour child care for infants and children under the age of seven, parent education, crisis counseling for parents, and referrals to other community agencies. For more information, please visit:

Covenant House Alaska 2014 Fire and Ice Ball

In January2014, Southern donated wines and spirits from participating supplier partners to the Fire and Ice Ball, with all proceeds going to the Covenant House Alaska. Covenant House Alaska has served thousands of homeless, at-risk, and trafficked youth in Alaska. Their sole purpose is to help youth in crisis 24-hours a day. Through three main programs—emergency shelter, street outreach and transitional living programs—Covenant House Alaska meets the basic needs of youth in crisis, while also providing them with the support to become healthy, self-sufficient, contributing members of our community.

This year's Fire & Ice Ball was a huge success. $500,000 was raised to benefit Covenant House Alaska. In just one night, guests provided funds to keep their doors open 24 hours a day for over 100 days. Thanks to this fun night of fundraising, hundreds of young men and women will have a safe, warm, loving roof over their heads.

In addition, Oregon Food Bank’s metro and statewide services teams provide technical assistance and training to hunger-relief agencies and matches local donations to help agencies build capacity to better serve the community.
