The Mielke and van Löben Sels families strongly believe in giving back to the community of which Arbor Crest Wine Cellars is a part. We provide annual assistance to a variety of charitable events by supporting local causes as a venue host, and through our donations and participation in fundraising events. Attendees always enjoy the fabulous setting and wonderful wines, along with the opportunity for exceptional event activities (like the "Wine Bottle Ring Toss" pictured above).

The Pour

A spectacular evening of gourmet food, outstanding auction packages and the finest vintages, held annually on the grounds of Arbor Crest. Proceeds benefit the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and the B.E.S.T. child psychiatry program at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. Last year, thanks to generous supporters, The Pour raised more than $100,000 (after expenses) to ensure quality health care in our community!
