Silent and Live Auctions
Over the years, we have auctioned off fine wines, exciting travel experiences, and exclusive dinners. One of a kind lots encompass all three. One of our best-selling lots was dinner with local wine legend, Sherwood Deutsch, which featured 1945 Chateau La Mission haut-Brion. Other notable lots have included a trip to France, a once-in-a-lifetime Kentucky Bourbon Trail experience, an Aston Martin St. Gallen Alpine R-Experience, and magnums and verticals of the highest-rated wines.
Support of the wine auction through a gift of wine or an experience will be recognized as a charitable gift to a not-for-profit (501c3). The University of Rochester issues a formal tax receipt for any gift that meets IRS guidelines for tax deductibility. Your tax receipt for any in-kind gifts will not display a dollar amount or value but only a description of the item(s) donated. It is the donor’s responsibility to substantiate the value of non-cash gifts to the IRS.
If you are interested in donating high-end wine or an experience like no other, please contact Caitlyn Conway firstname.lastname@example.org or (585) 275-3591.
