The second annual Washington Wine Weekend Festival to benefit Camp Korey is taking place the weekend of July 10 through July 12 at Carnation Farm.

Camp Korey is a medically supervised camp staffed with physicians and nurses and trained camp counselors for children suffering from serious and life-threatening illnesses. The camp, founded by Tim Rose in honor of his son Korey Rose, provides a week-long experience of camp programs and activities for children ages 7 to 16 at no cost to them.

This year's Wine Weekend will feature more than 50 local wineries and chefs creating winemaker dinners, outdoor camp activities, a live auction, and a feature performance by legendary American singer and songwriter, Carole King. King has been a long-time friend of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, and a supporter of his Hole in the Wall Camps, of which Camp Korey is a member.

King is set to perform Saturday evening, July 11.

The 2009 Wine Weekend honorees are Eric Dunham and the Dunham Family of Dunham Cellars, one of more than 50 wineries participating in the weekend-long event.

Seattle restaurateurs Tom Douglas of Tom Douglas Restaurants and Jason Wilson of Crush will return as featured chefs along with restaurants including the Waterfront Seafood Grill, Union, Poppy, 08, Brix 25, Pearl, Salish Lodge, WSU, Capital Grille, Sahalee Country Club and Wolfgang Puck.

Featured sponsors of this year’s event again include Newman’s Own and Continental Mills, makers of Krusteaz, who will be providing the gourmet breakfast on Saturday morning.
