Santa Fe Wine Classic
October 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm$150
Restaurant chefs will also craft specialty dishes to tempt the attendees’ taste palates. Restaurants include Santa Fe Steakhouse, Republic of the Rio Grande, The Spanish Room, Kumori Sushi & Teppanyaki, Mori Steakhouse, and Bodega Tavern & Kitchen.
Music is by Grupo Aché. The evening also features a cigar bar, silent auction, and a champagne, mimosa and dessert lounge. The event benefits the McAllen Chamber of Commerce Education Initiatives.
“With the help of the Wine Classic, over a million dollars have been donated to the Chamber’s initiatives,” said Gerry Garcia, McAllen Chamber of Commerce vice-president of Special Projects & Government Affairs. “This has become a prominent event for McAllen. Every year we sell out since we only have 350 tickets to offer. Anyone wishing to attend must get their tickets as soon as possible.”
“I think this is a prime example of one of the most important works a Chamber can do in a community – team up with a business and give back to the community,” said Albert Rego. “The whole event is about philanthropy and giving back to students who might not have enough to make it at college without this help or who just deserve this recognition of their hard work.”
A silent auction features an array of one-of-a-kind items to the highest bidders.
