Palm Beach Wine Auction celebrated its exceptional 11th year.
THE PARTY It was a sold-out evening worth toasting to as the Palm Beach Wine Auction welcomed its 11th year supporting children’s arts and education programs, held at Palm Beach’s leader in the arts, the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. THE GUESTS Wines, spirits and more than 230 of Palm Beach’s finest were piled into the gray-, magenta- and lavender-adorned Gimelstob Ballroom in the Cohen Pavilion for a five-course meal from The Breakers’ award-winning chef, Jeff Simms, plus, of course, a live auction. Each dish was complemented perfectly with vintages of the finest wines to enhance even the richest flavors. THE HIGHLIGHTS “For more than 25 years, the Kravis Center has ensured that children in our community are given the chance to grow their imaginations and expand the cultural connections in their lives through the performing arts,” Palm Beach Wine Auction chairman Ted Mandes said. “To date, the Kravis Center has welcomed more than 2.2 million schoolchildren served by 24 different arts education programs that take place at the center and throughout our local schools.”
