The Battle of the Pinots committee is a group of Pinot Noir-loving people, all of whom have been either supporters of our wine region, or even craft makers of their own brands. We also are strong supporters of youth education in the performing arts, which is why we are excited to throw this event AND support a great cause!

More about the beneficiary of the event:  The Oregon Crusaders’ mission is to provide education through performance to youth in the areas of musical and visual ensemble artistry. Through the group’s achievement of artistic and performance excellence, Oregon Crusaders provides the educational, cultural, interpersonal, physical and emotional growth necessary for young people to persevere and excel in life.

OC employs some the most talented design and instructional professionals in the country, who design programs that over 250 talented performers convey through a powerful, athletic and artistic performance. Oregon Crusaders produce three ensembles, including the Oregon Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps, OC Indoor winter percussion ensemble, and OC Independent winter colorguard.

Oregon Crusaders is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, EIN 93-1285710
