Ensuring an affordable path to higher education is no small task! We are lucky to have the support of so many people, businesses and organizations who generously gave to our auction, pledged donations for scholarships, showed up with samples of wines, beers, and spirits to share with 400+ guests, and made it possible for us to create one very fun evening that helps make educational dreams possible.

Thank you!
