About The Event

JOIN US for the WBA Foundation's 21st Annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction on Thursday, October 26, 2023, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  Thrilled to be back IN PERSON this year, our theme is “Revelry Until the Reveal - A Night of Mystery Wines” in which attendees will get to revel in sampling multiple mystery wines, culminating in a reveal led by  Alison Marriott, Owner & Founder, Bon Vivant DC.  Alison is certified through the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (Level II, with distinction) and a Dame Chevalier in the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne.

Simultaneously, you will have a chance to bid online for dozens of unique and unbeatable auction items, some of which will be on display at the event.  All of this will take place LIVE in the companionship of friends and acquaintances gathered in fellowship and in support of the WBAF.  Don’t miss it!

Proceeds from the event benefit the WBAF Founders Fellowship and our Community Grant programs. Over the years, the WBAF has awarded almost $1 million to support the legal and related needs of many women and girls in DC. Help us award more grants in 2024; join us as an auction donor, sponsor, or registrant.

Silent Auction

Silent auction items include sports tickets, vacation stays, tickets to local theaters, unique experiences, jewelry and handcrafts, and several gift baskets. Access to the auction is both online and in-person.
