Northwest Arkansas Wine Opener

If you live in NW Arkansas and you are wondering what to do tonight I have a suggestion for you! The Northwest Arkansas Wine Opener to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is being held this evening at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Bentonville. The event is business casual attire and begins with a VIP Reception at 6:00 pm and the Wine Opener begins at 7:00 pm. Participants can bid on auction items, sample wines and enjoy gourmet cuisine by Crabby's, Mimi's Cafe, Johnny Brusco's Pizza, Table Mesa, Basil's and Happas Hawaiian Grill.

This is a casual and fun evening where participants can Sip Fun Wines at various tasting stations presented by international and domestic wineries. The area's hottest chefs prepare their specialties so that guests can Savor Great Cuisine. Guests that purchase the VIP ticket will be treated to a special tasting of exclusive reserve wines and exquisite food pairings furnished by Ruth's Chris at the VIP Reception.

A Silent Auction is also held during the event. Volunteers gather donations from various businesses throughout the area. I became involved with the Wine Opener a few years ago. A friend of mine has an amazing daughter that is fighting CF. Mackenzie is an inspiration to everyone she meets! This year I have donated the Charlize Wood Necklace from my Stella & Dot business. I will also include the matching Charlize Teardrop Earrings for the winning bidder when they invite a few of their friends over for a private showing of the Stella & Dot collection.

So if you are out and about this evening and would like to contribute to a wonderful cause I hope you will consider stopping by The Wine Opener.
