Platinum Sponsor

Skagit Crest Vineyard & Winery is a small family owned venture located in Sedro Woolley, Washington overlooking the beautiful Skagit Valley. Estate grown grapes from our three-acre vineyard produce most of our fine wines. Great wine begins in the vineyard. Our vines bathe in sunshine over seventeen hours a day during the growing season and our southwestern slope makes an ideal site for growing quality grapes. We think local wines from our local vines are an excellent complement to Pacific Northwest cuisine.


We believe wine is about Time, Place, & Circumstance. ‘Time’ is carefully tending the vines, harvesting perfect grapes, crafting the finest wine, and time savoring the wine. ‘Place’ is about growing local unique grapes, making wine within feet of its vines, and enjoying wine in your favorite setting. ‘Circumstance’ is soil and climate growing perfect grapes, making wine to bring out its best qualities, and last, enjoying it with the best of foods and friends. Wine embodies Time, Place, & Circumstance.

La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib House was established in 1986 by Jim and Mary Lou Caudill in a historic building with a thrilling past of smuggling, gambling, and the crazy hippy days of the 60’s & 70’s. In 1996 Kari VandenBosch joined the team and worked her way up to general manager. In 2002 La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib House was sold, and Kari left to manage Flounder Bay Cafe which she then purchased in 2004 with her husband Jason VandenBosch. In January 2008 Kari & Jason purchased La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib House, at which point they decided to focus solely on La Conner Seafood and Prime Rib. We are a family run company with a commitment to our local vendors and our community.

Dr. Brandon Atkinson

Dr. Brandon Atkinson grew up in rural Pennsylvania wrestling, playing football, and helping his dad in his diesel shop and his mom manage his siblings while together they all ran a landscaping business. His determination to be a dentist developed in his early teenage years.  His desire is to be a force for good in the community. When Dr. Atkinson isn’t with patients, he spends the majority of his time with one or several of his six children watching round after round of golf or sitting on the bleachers watching soccer, basketball or tennis. As several of his children are adults now, they enjoy remodeling and real estate together and best of all, grandchildren. He thoroughly enjoys spending time with his wife who is often remodeling or building their latest project, and looking at real estate especially when traveling, while trying to fit in a little tennis if there is any time left over.
