15 Years of Gourmet Food and Wine

15 years of Student Support

15 years ago, the Foundation hosted the first SipSwirl&Savor at Spencer's for Steaks and Chops. With support from SCC's Inland Northwest Culinary Academy, donors raised over $30,000 at that event for the college's students and programs.

Our event has grown and changed over the last decade and a half. We've gone from restaurant dining to nights in the vineyard, from celebrating on campus to gathering in an elegant ballroom. Last year we even gathered for our first virtual gala!

What hasn't changed in these 15 years, though, is the impact of this event for our students. From $30,000 raised at the first event to $126,000 at last year's event, SipSwirl&Savor has always been about supporting CCS students. 

Something Special for our 15th Anniversary

To honor this legacy of fabulous food and wine, incredible auction items, and inspiring student stories, this year we have created SipSwirl&Savor: A Commemorative Cookbook. Find recipes from across our event's history, like Butter Poached Shrimp Etouffee or Fresh Fruit Tart with Grand Marnier Pastry Cream. It will also include photos of past events, a “Where Are They Now” of some of our graduates, and more.

On April 20th, we're opening pre-orders for our cookbook! Reserve your copy for $50, or check out any of our Cookbook Packages below.
