2015 Austin Opera Serenata Wine Dinner and Auction
The Austin Opera Serenata Wine Dinner and Auction, held on February 21 at Austin’s Four Seasons Hotel, was a fabulous event. The four course meal was enjoyable, the wine flowed generously, and there was song, dance and, most of all, auctions. The event is fundamentally a wine auction, but the steering committee did a fantastic job of creating a program filled with variety; live music and dancing were new treats. My kudos to all committee members as I know firsthand the amount of work and energy it takes to bring the event to fruition.
As an Austin Opera Guild member and supporter of Ausitn Opera, I was particularly pleased with the support of local businesses and sponsors, coupled with the strong participation and donation of items for both the silent and live auctions. It was a splendid event. Bravo! (Pics here)
Renowned artist, Graydon Parrish, coupled with the well-know Austin attorney, Becky Beaver, provided one of the many wondrous live auction items. (pictured below)
