Raising glasses for a good cause

Wine and music flowed freely at the Bootstraps Western Winefest on Saturday afternoon.

Attendees at the fifth annual event at the Evergreen rodeo grounds sampled a variety of Colorado wines and listened to the bright sounds of BooDaddy.

Along with music from the band, the delicious aroma of food floated through the summer air as chefs prepared treats for festival-goers.

In the demonstration tent, Michael Coughlin, proprietor of 240 Union restaurant in Lakewood, was grilling shrimp and scallops as his audience watched and tasted samples.
