Vintners Dinner & Auction

This evening will focus on highlighting the wines of Château Lafite Rothschild presented by Baron Eric de Rothschild. The dinner is followed by a live auction with exciting trips, wonderful dinners, and rate & highly sought-after wine as well as our much anticipated offering of grand format bottles signed by the winemakers.

At the conclusion of the auction, we will highlight our individual giving campaign, Stand Up for Your Heart, in celebration of the mission of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.
