Bid at the live and silent auctions. Support ESF and your favorite local businesses while bringing home something special.

We also feature a wine wall at our event. When you play the wine wall, you win every time! The wine wall comprises donated bottles, valued at $35 or more. Have bottles in your cellar that you’d like to donate? Bring them to Capitol Cellars and Marcus Graziano will store and deliver them to us. Or, swing by Capitol Cellars and purchase wine, which Marcus will store and deliver to us the day of the auction.

Thank you in advance to our kind donors.

Instead of spending money at the no-host bar, for a $75 donation to ESF, you will get to taste many rare and amazing wines, provided by Capitol Cellars.
