A Tasting Event with Purpose
Corks + Forks, now in its seventh year, brings together more than 650 Portland professionals, trend-setters, entrepreneurs and young leaders for an evening of great food and wine. Local top chefs and wineries are invited to share the best they have to offer in a casual and fun environment. This has quickly become one of Portland's most popular tasting events. 
Presented by Classic Wines Auction, Corks + Forks gives you the opportunity to associate your brand with a trusted organization that supports the critical work of nonprofit organizations right here in our community. Classic Wines Auction events benefit five nonprofits: Metropolitan Family Service (MFS), New Avenues for Youth, Friends of the Children, YWCA Clark County, and the Unity Center for Behavioral Health.
Please contact Classic Wines Auction Executive Director Heather Martin (503.972.0194) to discuss how we can create a sponsorship package that works for you!
