Heart's Delight Wine Auction

I'm proud to be serving this year on the Auction Committee for the Heart's Delight Wine Tasting and Auction, and I want to introduce you to this amazing event and give you a chance to donate to a really worthwhile cause...

Over the past eight years, Heart's Delight has grown to become one of the nation’s premier food and wine events - it provides the ideal combination of great food and wine while raising the much-needed funding to support the mission of the American Heart Association. Since Heart’s Delight began in 1999, we have raised $6 million dollars for the fight against heart disease and stroke.

Planning for the 2008 event this May 8-10 in DC is under way, and I would like to invite you to join us by donating to the auction. With an auction goal of $500,000, we welcome donations of wine, gift certificates, dinners, etc… Donations can be sent to the American Heart Association, 4301 North Fairfax Drive, Suite 530, Arlington, VA 22203. To ensure listing in the auction program, donation forms must be turned in by March 5, 2008. For your convenience, donation forms are available online at
