RIVERS – Water to Wine, the annual event to support Spokane River improvements for anglers, rafters, paddlers and other users is set for Friday from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Chateau River in the Flour Mill basement, 621 W. Mallon Ave.
The funds are used to establish access to the river, said co-host Sean Visintainer of Silver Bow Fly Shop.
Proceeds from the event this year, according to the Spokane River Forum, will be dedicated to building a boat slide access at Glover Field in Peaceful Valley for river access downstream of the falls and into the Spokane River Gorge.
A new access at Glover would tie in well with the recently revamped takeout downstream at the Treatment Plant, he said.
The fundraising event will include auction items such as a Winston fly rod, guided trips and more. Appetizers and drinks will be available as well as live music from the The Cronkites.
