Thank you for attending and supporting the 37th Annual Epicurean Delight, benefiting Vitalant (formerly Inland Northwest Blood Center). The event, held on November 9th, 2018 at the Spokane Convention Center, featured 30 restaurants and 30 libations, showcasing some of the most amazing food and libations our region has to offer.

We would like to thank all of our amazing partners, guests, participants and volunteers who helped make Spokane’s largest cocktail party and the most fun black-tie/formal gala in the Northwest possible!


Your simple, lifesaving action today has the remarkable power to transform lives for many tomorrows. We are grateful you are in our community and we are inspired by your decision to help others through donating blood at Vitalant. We are so grateful to our donors and strive to ensure the blood donation experience is pleasant and comfortable. Therefore this year, all proceeds raised from Epicurean Delight 2018 will be going towards enhancing the blood donor experience at all of our local Vitalant – Washington and Idaho locations.
