Broward County Charity & Causes Tasting Event

9th Annual American Fine Wine Competition Gala

9th Annual AFWC Charity Wine GalaFriday, April 8, 6:30pm-10:30pm – Hyatt Pier 66, 2301 SE 17th St, Fort Lauderdale

AFWC Charity Wine Gala dinner, a spectacular annual black tie-optional event, is one of the most looked forward to in South Florida. The Sparkling Reception features sparkling wines from the competition, an amazing array of hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction where all wines from the competition, signed by the winemakers, are available for the biding. Dozens of Winemakers participate in the Tasting Room walk where they pour their finest wines for guests just prior to dinner. The magnificent wine-inspired dinner highlights all of the awarded wineries (more than 700), poured table-side by our Wine Angels, most of whom are students of FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality. Six winemakers are awarded “Best of the Year” during a lovely ceremony and live music by the tribute band, Breeze, brings the party into the wee hours. Individual tickets are $300.
