A Magical Weekend Dedicated to Finding Cures for Cancer
The 16th Annual V Wine Celebration will be August 7-10, 2014
Join us for the Celebration!
We are looking ahead and working hard to bring you our 16th Annual Wine Celebration in the beautiful Napa Valley. While we can’t give away all our secrets yet, we will mention that we are revamping our format for the auctions, bringing exciting new locations to our weekend (such as Silver Oak and Raymond) obtaining new entertainment and still keeping our guests’ favorites.
Our 15th Anniversary event in 2013 was hosted by Coach K and his wife Mickie. As Jimmy’s beloved competitor and friend, we can’t think of a better host for our event. We started on Thursday with exclusive Winery Dinners hosted by the proprietors at Vineyard 29, Ovid, Pride Mountain and Vineyard 7&8. Friday morning began in luxury with a Bentley Driving Experience through the Napa Valley. In the afternoon, guests participated in a wine exploration with a Riedel Wine Tasting and Miner Wines. Friday night we got the party started at our “All-Stars of Research” celebration featuring renowned restaurateurs, preeminent vintners and custom barrel auctions, followed by a high-energy performance by world-class band and concert act David Martin’s House Party.
On Saturday morning we featured the Cancer Research Symposium where the nation’s leading physicians and research scientists present the latest advances in cancer treatments. This is a packed audience, with people standing in the back and overflowing into the courtyard. Later, guests savored boutique and legendary wines with a fusion of edibles at the Innovators & Icons Marketplace at the Villagio Pool and Spa.
Saturday evening is the crown jewel of our weekend event. Transforming the gorgeous Nickel & Nickel Winery, we create a magical place where serious purposes are mixed with luxurious extravagance and warm camaraderie. Guests enjoyed a wine reception while perusing offerings in our Silent & Showcase auctions in the barrel Chai, followed by our lavish Gala Dinner prepared by the world-famous McCalls and a Porsche Car Raffle prior to our Live Auction. “Ohhs” and “Ahhs” abounded as one amazing auction lot after another kept bidders eagerly awaiting to see the exciting bidding. Our touching “Fund A Need” in 2013 was in honor of Robin Roberts MDS research and secondary cancers, and we’re proud to have raised over $1.2 million just for that single purpose. We celebrated raising an amazing $9.2 million at our event with a private performance by Oscar and Grammy winning rock singer and guitarist, Melissa Etheridge.
