Raise your glass! Guests at the May 28 civic banquet toasted Ted Baseler, president and CEO of Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, as the 2015 Seattle-King County First Citizen.

We salute him as a visionary leader, a generous volunteer and a compassionate citizen. His benevolence benefits the state’s economy, his alma mater (Washington State University), Seattle Children’s Hospital, and low-income college students.
