Our Second Annual A Rare Affair

September 22, 2023

The night will begin with a VIP Hour where Sponsors and VIP ticket holders will have the opportunity to experience a full hour of tastings and food in a less crowded environment, as well as speak directly with board members, partners, sponsors, and wineries. After the VIP Hour, all guests will be able to enjoy delicious food stations and hors d'oeuvres, an hour and a half of wine tastings, a full open bar with top-shelf cocktails. We have some exciting NEW winery additions this year straight from Napa Valley as well as the addition of rare tequilas! We also will have a silent auction to accompany the live auction and a live band!

We are working hard behind the scenes to make A Rare Affair bigger and better this year and we anticipate another sold out event! Thank you for helping us support families and children through their rare disease journey. We hope to see you on February 10!
