Join Us at the 14th Annual Fine Wine Auction

 

The Canadian Opera Company's 14th Annual Fine Wine Auction is tomorrow, and whether you're a wine aficionado or just interested in a wine-filled party, you should definitely raise a glass and join us. Whet your appetite with some delicious hors d'oeuvres, enjoy a selection of wines by Trius, and get your paddles ready for our auction lots! (To see what the Fine Wine Auction looked like last year, revisit event write-ups by Fabulously Average and Baby & Life.)

Thinking of attending but need some convincing? You can also look forward to:

- Performances by Ensemble Studio sopranos Mireille Asselin, our Adele in Die Fledermaus, and Sasha Djihanian, our Alisa in Lucia di Lammermoor

- An array of cheeses courtesy of Scheffler's Deli and Cheese

- Chocolate by Rhéo Thompson Candies

- Hors d'oeuvres served by 10tation

- A well-stocked silent auction

- Raffle for a night out in a private box at a Toronto Raptors game valued at $5,000

 

To purchase tickets and to preview some of the wines available for auction, visit our Fine Wine Auction page. The wine auction will take place this Thursday, April 18 at The Design Exchange, starting at 6 p.m. Bring your taste buds and be ready to bid!
