Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our youth!

The Grand Auction is the largest and most successful wine auction in Virginia and we are looking forward to another amazing event this year. Grand Auction activities begin at noon with the preview reception featuring gourmet cuisine prepared by eight of the region’s top chefs complemented by exquisite champagnes and wines.
