Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our youth! With your help we raised a RECORD $2.3 MILLION DOLLARS for educational charities!

SAVE THE DATE for the 31st GRAND AUCTION WEEKEND – November 2-5, 2022.

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.

In addition to rare and highly collectible wines, guests can bid on special travel itineraries ranging from long weekends to exotic vacations, dining at many of the area’s best restaurants, luxury merchandise and unique lifestyle packages. The festivities take place on the grounds of Southside Marina overlooking Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach. We hope to see you there!
