Pharmacy Homecoming Social Hour

October 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for a Zoom social hour to meet Mark Leid, the new dean of the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. As the Crimson Gala and annual tailgate have been postponed to 2021, we will instead celebrate Mark’s homecoming! Many of you may know that Mark graduated from the WSU College of Pharmacy in 1983. After an illustrious career which brought him to France and Oregon, we will be celebrating his return to the Cougar family. Join us for a live auction of Mark’s homemade red wine, created with a selection of grapes from Yakima Valley, aged in French oak barrels, and crafted with precision by Mark and fellow engineering friends to ensure optimal flavor. Participants will also have a chance to win some Cougar Crest wine, and other fun games to catch up with the CougaRx Nation. We hope to see you there!

Wines for Auction:

  • 2016 Sangiovese: This Sangiovese is from the Brunello clone of the Sangiovese grape grown around the town of Montalcini in Tuscany. This 2016 vintage grown on Lonesome Spring Ranch Vineyard in the Yakima Valley benefits from a warm growing year and exhibits jammy berry flavors, supple tannins and is an easy pairing with any meat. ABV 13.6%
  • 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot/Malbec: A Lonesome Spring Ranch Vineyard field blend of these traditional Bordeaux varietals in 30/10/40/20 proportions. Fermented together, this blend was 100% classic Bordeaux style from the start. The fruit is dark, think black currant and dark plum, firm tannins that open quickly, and a complexity on the palate owing to the cab and malbec contributions. ABV 13.8%
  • 2017 Petit Sirah: This inky dark wine often appears blended in Zinfandel in California wines, often adding a characteristic pepper/spiciness. On its own, the wine exhibits big red fruit flavors and a hint of spice. ABV 13.8%


SHOW YOUR COUGAR SPIRIT! This is a casual affair so wear your crimson and grey or bring any Cougar swag to show your pride.
