The Wine Auction


We have a Wine Auction raffle winner!

The winning ticket number for the $20,000 cash raffle was 757. The winner was announced at the 26th Annual Wine Auction on September 19, 2015. The winner was not at the event but was called that evening by our emcee, Cathy Wurzer. Thanks to everyone that bought a ticket and supported The Wine Auction!

Join us for the 26th Annual Wine Auction

One thousand community members will fill the St. Paul RiverCentre for an evening filled with fine wine and food, music from local artists and silent and live auction. The 2014 Wine Auction raised more than $1 million and we look forward to another successful event in 2015. We hope you can join us.

This year's Wine Auction will include whisky from Queen Elizabeth II!

Her Majesty generously donated two bottles of 1980 Bowmore Single Malt Whisky from her private cellar to Regions Hospital Foundation. Only three are given away every year, and these are the first two that have ever been donated to a U.S. charity. The bottles will be auctioned off as part of The 2015 Wine Auction.

Proceeds will strengthen the programs of our Burn Center

The Twin Cities can take pride in the Burn Center at Regions Hospital. Started in 1963 as one of the first burn centers in the country, it has become the most complete and extensive facility of its kind in the Upper Midwest, providing state-of-the-art care for all types of burns and wounds. The Burn Center provides the finest care to patients and their families from the time of injury through rehabilitation, all in one location. Many of its staff members are national leaders in burn treatment, research and rehabilitation.

Now, with proceeds from The 2015 Wine Auction, the Burn Center will bolster the emotional care it offers to its patients, who suffer rates of post-traumatic stress equal to that of our military forces. The center is a leader in the research of new treatments and technologies, and event proceeds will allow it to hire a research fellow to keep this program going strong. Finally, contributions will allow the Burn Center to provide follow-up care to patients in locations across the five-state area, making our specialized care more convenient and affordable to those who live far away.
