About

pouring champagne into glass on tableThe exclusive Wine Auction supports the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers, known for its clinical care and revolutionary research. The first annual Toast to Your Health Wine Auction was held in 2001. Funds raised from the event benefit a different URMC department each year to ensure that a broad range of clinical care and research programs prosper from the philanthropic support along with increased community awareness. The elegant, fun-filled evening appeals to philanthropic donors and grateful patients as well as wine enthusiasts and adventure seekers by offering guests a unique dining experience and notable wines from around the world. The evening is comprised of a silent auction and an informative program which highlights the benefiting department, followed by an extraordinary live auction and a call to action.
