Thanks to a generous donation from the Eastern Washington Private Estate of Ken Hick and Cheri Cooley-Hick, we are pleased to make available an extremely limited edition of 200 private label bottles of Oregon Ballet Theatre Dance United Merlot, hand signed by Artistic Director Christopher Stowell, hand-numbered, and featuring the signatures of all 10 Dance United guest artists, plus Oregon Ballet Theatre Principal Dancers Artur Sultanov and Alison Roper. With grapes sourced from the prestigious Boushey Vineyard in Eastern Washington, as well as Horse Heaven Hills in Yakima Valley and Ash Hollow in Walla Walla, this special vintage features dark aromas of cigar box, cedar and spice, followed by rich flavors of black cherries, smokey roasted figs and dates and finished with lingering black pepper and brown sugar.
The first 200 people to support Oregon Ballet Theatre’s yearend campaign with a donation of $200 or more will receive a bottle of this commemorative wine as our gift. In addition, your new or additional gift of $200 or more by June 30th will formally induct you into the Celebration Society, a special community of ballet and wine lovers who will receive exclusive invitations to wine tastings, intimate ballet and wine events, plus first right of refusal on future bottles of commemorative ballet-inspired wine from top winemakers from around Oregon and Washington.
Will you join the Celebration Society with a new or additional gift of $200 or more?

Our outreach and scholarship programs ensure that every dancer with exceptional talent, regardless of background or financial means, has the opportunity to develop the discipline, grace, skill and drive towards excellence that makes for an extraordinary ballet dancer and an exceptional citizen of our fair city. Thank you for making this important work possible.
