Hola Amigos de Papilio!

Like Papilio, our fourth annual Taste of Freedom event has been forced to adapt to the changing circumstances and our all-volunteer leadership team is following the lead of Antonio and Maria as we seek to find creative means to meet needs by raising support and spreading awareness to fight sex trafficking.  As previous participants and friends of Papilio, you are receiving this early invitation to our 2020 Taste of Freedom V.I.P. event…Virtual or In Person!

Four ways to support Papilio:

  • Participate in one of our COVID-compliant Taste of Freedom 2020 live events, In Person, on Nov. 14th or 15th at Northwest Cellars **spaces are limited, reserve your seat before they sell out!**
  • Plan a personal Taste of Freedom in the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule, Virtually
  • Purchase custom labeled wine bottles, for yourself and as holiday gifts
  • Promote the Partner with Papilio social media blitz Nov. 16th – 22nd to encourage others to give

While the needs have changed over the months, so has the response of Papilio as they continue to work on the frontlines, even as the risks to their own well-being have increased.  Yet even during these times new doors of opportunity have been opened and more women and children have been rescued over the last six months than any previous half year since their formal work began in 2017.  And just as the needs on the streets and in the brothels continue, so does the work of Papilio. To keep this important work of justice possible, Papilio needs ongoing financial support to continue their work of relief, rescue, and restoration – one life at a time.

**No Risk 2020 Guarantee** –
if you register for the In Person event but circumstances change and you are unable to attend, your registration automatically converts to the Virtual experience and the NWC tasting kit comes to you!

Virtual – Taste of Freedom:

Our Papilio volunteers will deliver a tasting kit from Northwest Cellars featuring: Relief, Rescue, Restoration, and Relationship and a delicious bistro box from Urban Whey.  As a V.I.P. ticket purchaser you get discounted pricing to order custom labeled bottles, also available for delivery or pick-up. We’ll send you a link to our Partner with Papilio video and information on how you can support their ongoing work.

Your V.I.P. ticket purchase includes an in person reservation to one of our four wine tasting sessions at Northwest Cellars (Nov. 14th & 15th, 1:00 or 2:30 p.m,)  and a delicious personal bistro box from Urban Whey. As a V.I.P. supporter you get discounted pricing to order custom labeled bottles and premier screening of our Partner with Papilio video with the opportunity to consider supporting their ongoing work.

their front-line work against sex-trafficking.
