A fundraiser aimed at increasing awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder among military veterans is scheduled for tonight at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 4th Ave. N.
The event, which runs from 6:30-10:30 p.m., includes tastings from local wineries and breweries, food, a silent auction and live entertainment. Emcee will be Ron Clyborne of the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce board, himself a Vietnam veteran.
