HeartGift Fine Wine and Luxe Living Dinner and Auction
For the 4th Annual Fine Wine and Luxe Living Dinner and Auction benefiting HeartGift Foundation, friends and fans gathered at the Driskill Hotel. Event Chairs Robyn and John Pesce with Meghan and Chris Slover were able to thoroughly fill the upstairs ballroom. The evening featured both a live and silent auction with over 50 live auction lots and more than 60 silent auction lots. Political commentator Harvey Kronberg mostly put politics aside to serve as auctioneer with admirable style. Proceeds from the evening will continue the Foundation’s mission of bringing children from around the world for life saving heart surgery.
