An Affair with Flair: A Fine Wine Auction

Red Cross disaster response and preparedness

As the American Red Cross of Western Carolinas works to meet the needs of thousands of community residents each year, we have come to rely on the phenomenal fundraising results of An Affair with Flair: A Fine Wine Auction. Since its inception over 20 years ago, this highly anticipated event has raised well over $2.3 million to support the programs and services of the American Red Cross. From the relief items provided to disaster victims, to the emergency lifesaving First Aid and CPR training provided to local community residents, the American Red Cross provides life-changing services in our community and depends on the generosity of this event’s sponsors, patrons and donors to keep these vital programs available.

This Red Cross signature fundraising event is attended by the affluent and influential of Greenville, S.C. and beyond. In addition to sponsor dinners and wine tasting events throughout the weekend, Saturday evening’s black tie Gala is one of Greenville’s hottest tickets. Vintners and proprietors from wine estates fly into Greenville. The wine celebrities donate their time pouring a selection of their personal wines during the fine wine tasting and silent auction. The tasting and silent auction is followed by a seated dinner and live auction featuring exceptional wines, unique food experiences and one-of-a-kind travel opportunities. The night concludes with a live band and dancing. It is the perfect opportunity to relax with old friends and enjoy making new acquaintances.

Your donation is tax deductible, and will help the Red Cross fulfill its mission of providing relief to victims of disaster and helping people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.

Thank you to our presenting sponsors, Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and FLUOR.
