|On Saturday, October 20th, 2018, the Whistler Search and Rescue Society (WSAR) will hold its annual “Wine’d Up” fundraising dinner and auction. The evening includes a five-course dinner prepared by some of the resort’s top chefs, paired with select wines from California.
Brad Sills, the President of WSAR, notes that Wine’d Up is the single largest source of revenue for his volunteer-driven agency. WSAR saves numerous lives every year, and the non-profit organization is an invaluable resource to the RCMP, the local community, and the visitors to Whistler who propel the resort’s economy.
