Raise a glass to raise up DC girls and women in need during the first of its kind evening for the WBA Foundation, which has transformed its popular annual wine tasting and silent auction fundraiser into a virtual event for 2020. The event typically draws an average of 150 attendees, and we expect the same turnout—or more—in this new format. The exciting sparkling wines plus pairings will be delivered to attendees’ doorsteps* for an enjoyable evening of expert-guided tastings, accompanied by an online auction with diverse items in every price range, including pandemic-appropriate and post-pandemic items for fun and entertainment!
Event participants will have a Wine Tasting Kit delivered to their door (DC Metro area only). Each kit includes four sparkling wines (Brut, 375ml; Cava, 750ml; Prosecco, 375ml; and Rose Ragale, 375ml) and sweet and savory pairings, customized to complement each wine selection. They will also have access to the virtual Wine Tasting event on October 29, including a tasting class by Alison Marriott, Owner & Founder, Bon Vivant DC; Alison is certified through the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (Level II, with distinction) and a Dame Chevalier in the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne. The evening will wrap up with a post-event networking session: sip and chat with WBA Foundation Board members and other supporters.
Registration also includes a door prize ticket and access to the silent auction, open from October 22 through October 29. Items include sports tickets, vacation stays, tickets to local theaters, unique experiences, and several gift baskets.
