Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center Appoints Abbey Cameron as Marketing and Event Coordinator

Date: 09/07/11

Abbey Cameron was appointed by the Board of Directors to the newly established Marketing and Event Coordinator position. In this role, Ms. Cameron will apply her marketing and event planning expertise and education background to build visitorship, foster connections with the wine, agriculture and at-large communities and further the mission of the Clore Center.

Ms. Cameron recently relocated to the Tri-Cities from Washington, DC where she spent the last six years working for the National Association of Home Builders on membership marketing and event planning. A native of Connecticut and graduate of the University of Delaware with a background in family and community services, she brings a seasoned perspective to the new position. “I was immediately attracted to the Clore Center’s mission and am very excited to be working with the Board. The new Vineyard Pavilion and grounds are a lovely space for business and community events or personal celebrations such as weddings. Please come by for a visit and tour.” Contact or call 1.509.786.1000.

Named after the late Dr. Walter J. Clore, the Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center will be a centrally located, must-see learning center that promotes Washington State wine and food by actively engaging visitors to experience and realize the quality and diversity of Washington’s wine and food products.

The Clore Center site, located off I-82 at Exit 82 on 24 acres overlooking the Yakima River, the Horse Heaven Hills and Rattlesnake Mountain in Prosser, Washington, was chosen because of Prosser’s distinction as the home of the largest irrigated agricultural research center in the United States where Dr. Clore began his research in 1937 on small fruits and vegetables including grapes. Designed to complement its natural surroundings, the conceptual 15,000 square foot Clore Center building and grounds will offer several indoor and outdoor venues for conferences, meetings, business and social gatherings and events.

The Vineyard Pavilion, a satellite building to the future Clore Center, opened in May 2011. The 2,400 square foot building offers indoor and outdoor assembly areas, a catering kitchen, office space and rest rooms. The Legends of Washington Wine Gala and Prosser Wine and Food Fair will permanently host their annual events on the Clore Center site.
