HeartBright Annual Soiree and Wine Auction 2020 - A Celebration!

For the last seventeen wonderful years, HeartBright's Soiree & Wine Auction has annually raised 85% of our operating budget through the generosity of our patrons, sponsors, wine donors, and Bonterra Restaurant. Please join us November 7th in celebration of the clinical care and hope that your support has provided our patients every day over the last 11 months.

We are transitioning to a live-streaming event for 2020 so that we can still "come together" to raise needed funding for our 2021 programs. The entertaining and interactive pre-show starts at 6:30 pm Saturday November 7th, followed by Tom Blocker and Chris Little hosting the paddle raise and live wine auction featuring many coveted, hard to find wines! Enjoy a Soiree celebration at home for two or host a Watch Party and invite your "Champagne Bubble" of friends and family. Online bidding begins 8am Wednesday, November 4th for silent auction items and 8am Saturday the 7th for live auction items.

Tickets are $300 per couple and include "Soiree in a Box" to bring the experience home to our local and out of town guests. This box includes your live-streaming event link, event program, patron gift, a bottle of fine Cabernet, along with your choice of a $100 gift certificate to Bonterra or dinner for two from Bonterra (for Charlotte Area guests only) and can be picked up at no extra charge or delivered for a $30 fee. Local guests can also reserve cheese and charcuterie for their Watch Party.

We look forward to having you join us!
