In 2010, The Stranger combined forces with Shunpike, providing The Genius Awards with a non-profit umbrella for individual and corporate donations. This Genius Foundation is accepting donations for all five Genius Awards. Every donation, large or small, will keep funding alive for these outstanding artists who challenge their mediums and raise the bar for their peers by rewarding them for their excellence and creative innovation.
Do you like wine? Of course you do. How about genius-level artists, right here in Seattle? YES. In the time-honored tradition of two great tastes that go great together, The Stranger proudly presents Genius Juice—a way for you to support our best local artists by drinking some of our best local wine.
Blended by the marvelous Chris Sparkman of award-winning Sparkman Cellars in Woodinville, Genius Juice is produced in a limited quantity to support the Genius Awards. Only 50 precious cases exist of our 2013 blend, featuring 50 percent shiraz and 50 percent malbec grapes from gorgeous Red Mountain, Washington.
Genius Juice is only available for purchase in association with Night of a Bunch of Geniuses—our Genius Foundation fundraiser on June 6 at Pike and Summit. Buy it by the case or by the glass: Sparkman Cellars' wine is certified excellent by Wine & Spirits, Wine Spectator, and Wine Enthusiast, and by drinking it in support of the Genius Awards, you will be certified excellent, too.
