Our great clients and friends at Cho Wines, Lois and Dave Cho, are launching an epic food and wine fest in May to promote Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) wineries and restaurants here in Oregon.
“Thank you so much for your support. So very grateful for your team in many ways.” Lois Cho, Chief Executive Officer/Founder, Cho Wines
In 2023, Cho Wines Owners Dave and Lois Cho founded Oregon Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Food + Wine, a nonprofit created with the mission to celebrate the diverse wine and culinary scenes that make Oregon so unique. The goal is to uplift Asian American Pacific Islander food and wine businesses, promote diversity, and educate the public regarding non-traditional food and wine pairings.
This inaugural event will be an epic two-day food and wine festival on May 20 and 21 from 11am to 5pm at the Stoller Family Estate Experience Center in Dayton.
As proud sponsors, we are helping to celebrate and elevate the increasing diversity of Oregon’s AAPI food and wine entrepreneurs. In addition to the standard benefits of our Gold Level Sponsorship, our own Stephanie Phillips negotiated even more visibility by asking Lois Cho what else we could provide that would help kick off this inaugural festival. Stephanie explains how this smart question took our company visibility up another notch, “We get to provide pens for the AAPI festival and that is exciting. Even though it is small, it gets our name out there even more and of course, you can never have too many pens.”
