On April 7, sisters Lorie and Barbara Dilley hosted a vendor fair called Sweets and Wine to raise funds for the Sandy Area Chamber of Chamber. Even with the intensely rainy weather, several people came out to taste wines from local wineries, eat lunch and peruse art and other products sold by local residents.
The Chamber is a nonprofit that is dedicated to providing a sustainable business community that fosters growth and positive change. The event was held in the tasting room and winery with 20+ vendors. Vendors included local wineries from Oregon, bakeries, confectioners, chocolatiers, artisans, and craftsmen.
“We like to get some of the local vendors to show their craft and arts and try to build that community,” Lorie noted.
