Last Saturday, 330 individuals joined us at the Westin Edina Galleria to enjoy wines from around the world and help make a difference in the lives of our hungry neighbors at Vintner Ball!

For the second year, we worked closely with our Presenting Sponsor, Kowalski’s Markets to partner with wine distributors, connoisseurs and local businesses to curate more than 100 wines from the best regions in the world for guests to enjoy.

The event also included wine seminars hosted by industry experts to compliment the tastings. Beyond the wine, guests enjoyed unique food tastes from local restaurants, artisan cheeses and sumptuous desserts from Kowalski’s Markets, a silent auction, and live music from Wayne Anthony Jazz Ensemble featuring Adi Yeshaya on Piano.

Thanks to the guests and our generous sponsors, the 12th annual Vintner Ball raised more than $142,000 – enough to help us distribute nearly 430,000 meals!

There’s so much that contributes to the success of any event and we would like to specially thank our sponsors, Presenting Sponsor - Kowalski’s Markets, Donation Match Sponsor – Delta Air Lines, Marketing Sponsors  - MoCo, Dolan Printing and Edina Magazine.
