The Auxiliary Board hosted its annual exclusive wine-tasting event, featuring a variety of premier wines, including Brassfield Estate Winery, Clif Family Winery, Cooper Hawk Winery, Foley Family Wines, Rodinia Wines, Trefethen Family Vineyards, and exclusive wines provided by Plum Market. All attendees enjoyed a refined wine tasting of more than 20 wines paired with gourmet food while they perused an array of exciting silent-auction items. After the wine tasting and hors d'oeuvres, there was a seated dinner featuring the wines of Buehlers Vineyard as well as a live auction. The evening was supplemented with a complimentary Speakeasy Vodka Lounge provided by Double Cross Vodka and ended with more beverages, dessert, and dancing.
