CVHC Taste of Clearwater

Taste of the Clearwater Committee members (L-R): Lenne Bonner, CEO, Ann Lima, Shawna Altmiller and Ashley Steinbruecker visited local wineries to invite them to be vendors at the upcoming event. Tickets are available on the St. Mary’s and Clearwater Valley Hospitals and Clinics Facebook page, at LCCU, and at P1FCU in Orofino for the beer and wine tasting event happening October 12, 2019 at the Big Eddy.

Clearwater Valley Hospital and Clinics Foundation invites you to enjoy a Taste of the Clearwater, a beer and wine tasting fundraising event from 3 – 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 at the Big Eddy event center. This event will feature a sampling of local wine, micro brews and food selections, entertainment by Shania Rales, favors for each guest, and a few other surprises!

“We will hold a silent auction as well as a small live auction,” explains Ashley Steinbruecker, Foundation Director.

“In an effort to encourage socializing and visiting with friends and fellow supporters of the hospital, and allowing guests to enjoy the entertainment, we will limit the live auction to 3-5 vacation packages and/or specialty donated items.”

“This will be an inside/outside event, so dress accordingly!” says Steinbruecker.

“Fire pits and propane heaters will be outside so that guests can enjoy the fall foliage and weather. We’d like to have some vendors set up inside and some outside, too.”

Your $40 ticket (if purchased before Oct. 7, it’s $45 after that date) will get you six “tastes” of beer or wine. You will have the option to purchase more tastes if you wish. Tickets are available at LCCU and P1FCU in Orofino, or can be purchased online through the event on our Facebook page, or by calling Ashley at 208-476-8033.

Proceeds from this event go towards programs, services and equipment for the hospital and clinics that may not otherwise be possible.

“We rely on our generous sponsors, ticket purchasers and auction item donators to make this event happen,” says Steinbruecker.

If you would like to be a sponsor or donate an item for the live or silent auction please contact Ashley Steinbruecker at or 208-476-8033.
