Wine on Wheels in Portland, Oregon

Submitted by on July 29, 2019 – 8:14 amNo Comment

Wine on Wheels, Portland, OregonWine on Wheels takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday (August 1, 2019), at the Ecotrust Rooftop Terrace, 721 NW Ninth Avenue, Portland, Oregon, to raise funds to improve the quality of life and independence of wheelchair users nationwide.

Wine on Wheels, co-sponsored by United Spinal Association and Wheeling Forward, will bring together some of Portland’s finest sommeliers and serve more than 75 wines from Oregon and beyond. The event will include exclusive tastings, locally-sourced appetizers, and a silent auction.

Proceeds raised from Wine on Wheels will benefit United Spinal and help provide wheelchairs users valuable information and resources on leading active, healthy lives through the organization’s membership magazine New Mobility.

“Portland is home to a thriving community of wheelchair users and is surrounded by some of the world’s premier vineyards, so why not unite the two to create an unforgettable night and a one-of-a-kind fundraiser,” says Ian Ruder, editor of New Mobility.

The event will also support the work of Wheeling Forward, which initially established Wine on Wheels in New York City in 2011 to assist people with disabilities in obtaining critical community-based services and supports.

“By partnering with United Spinal Association, we hope to expand our reach and leverage wine events to support partner organizations driving progress in the disability community,” said Yannick Benjamin, co-founder of Wheeling Forward.

Wine on Wheels Portland will also celebrate New Mobility‘s 30th anniversary with a toast and the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award Tim Gilmer, the longtime-editor of the magazine who transitioned to editor emeritus last year.

United Spinal Association is a national 501(c) (3) nonprofit membership organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of all people living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D), including veterans, and providing support and information to loved ones, care providers and professionals.

Wheeling Forward helps people with disabilities experience life to the fullest and enables them to see possibility where others see insurmountable obstacles. It steps in to help recently disabled people that lack a support system and resources to obtain the services they need.
