The Auxiliary Board hosted its annual exclusive wine-tasting event, featuring a variety of premier wines, including Cape Classics, Cooper Hawk Winery, Pacific Highway Wines, Palm Bay International Wines, Rodinia Wines, Terlato Wines and Treasury Wine Estates. All attendees enjoyed a refined wine tasting of more than 20 wines paired with gourmet food while they perused the wonderful array of exciting silent-auction items.
