The Auxiliary Board hosted its annual exclusive wine-tasting event, featuring a variety of premier wines, including Terlato Wines, Deutsch Family Wines, Island Club Brands, Wines of Brasil, and Cooper Hawk Winery. 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.
