History of Wine and Dine
Select Brands was looking for a partner to host this event on the Northshore and when our previous Executive Director heard the news, she was all on board! Dwayne and Charlene Shockley have been awesome partners with the HFOS since before the first event. They also participate in the Crawfish Cook-Off; donating all of their proceeds of the day.
Each year, our event is held at Benedict's Plantation in November. Select Brands donates over 100 wines and spirits that are available to taste. 10 -12 local restaurants share their signature dishes for patrons to taste. A live and silent auction is a part of the event. A trip to wine country in California is typically included in the auction. Raffle tickets for 100 Bottles of wine are also another part of the event. Wines that are tasted that night may be ordered at the event through The Wine Market and Habanos. Tickets are available at at the Hospice House, and board member, and EventBrite.
Guest for the Wine and Dine come from all over the Gulf South to sample the wines and spirits at this event.
Tickets are $75 per person or $125 for two. Sponsorships are available. Please contact the office for more information.
