Going Once, Going Twice, SOLD!

Going Once, Going Twice, SOLD!

With champagne flowing and lively bidding, the 27th Annual Rare & Fine Wine Auction was certainly a night to remember!  Guests arrived dressed to the nines and began the champagne toasts while perusing the live and silent auction items.  Wines of rare offerings, large formats, and coveted vintages were on display and wine trips and multi-course dinners were sold throughout the night.  A great time was had by all before the special night came to a close.  Drum roll, please…

And we are proud to announce that the foundation raised $260,000 to be used for our good works including culinary scholarships, educational grants, and a gift to The Texas Hunger Initiative and No Kid Hungry to help end childhood hunger in Texas.

We are extremely grateful to our Champagne Reception sponsors H-E-B and Moet Hennessy as well as those who supplied the wines for dinner: Cape Classics, Hahn Family Wines, Moet Hennessy, and Retour Wines.  Many thanks are also in order for The Four Seasons, TexSom sommeliers, our volunteers, auctioneers and spotters, and our Auction Committee, all without whom this night would not be possible!

And of course, thanks to you all for joining us for such a wonderful evening full of friends, fun, and plenty of wine!
