The KCWWL Summer Networking Event is Back!

This year, KCWWL is heading back to Elsom Cellars, a women-owned winery. Last year's event was a huge success, and we hope you join us again.

Come join us on Thursday, August 22nd, 2019, for Happy Hour from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Elsom's beautiful tasting room, located at 2960 4th Ave S (Suite 114), in Seattle’s Industrial District – just one bus away from downtown Seattle. Onsite parking is also available. This is a great opportunity to connect with fellow KCWWL members and women attorneys.  

In addition to two complimentary glasses of Elsom’s exquisite wines, enjoy a fabulous cheese spread with bread and gluten free crackers, along with veggies and nuts.  Come enjoy the summer, the wine, the music, and make new friends!
