Wine and Art Fundraiser Benefiting Ukraine
April 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We Invite You To Attend This Special Event!
Join us for an intimate evening of warm hospitality, Ukrainian music, vital conversation, and a Ukrainian art exhibit at the 7th & Union Building at Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC), 402 S. 54th Place in Phoenix, AZ, aimed at supporting Ukrainian strength and resilience while being inspired by the country’s wine and art. This fabulous fundraiser will be held at 5 p.m. on April 1, 2023.
What Will You Experience?
Enjoy delicious foods paired with Ukrainian sparkling wines and experience the compelling photography from Ukraine during the first year of the war. Cocktail attire. The ticket price of $110 includes wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres. Free parking and a cash bar will be available.
The wine tasting will focus on Artwinery, a Bakhmut winery with a centuries-long history and tradition of cultivation and production. The region is currently embroiled in brutal trench warfare while the winery’s millions of bottles of sparkling wine age deep underground in 60 acres of gypsum caves.
A great artist from Ukraine, Mila Strugatsky, will share her story of how the war in Ukraine impacted her art. We will have a chance to see beautiful pieces of her art created before and after February 24, 2022.
Start the evening by tasting hors d’oeuvres paired with the last bottles of Artwinery’s fine sparkling wines available in the U.S. The special guest of the event – Gayle Corrigan, President at Saperavi USA, a Ukrainian and Georgian wine importer – will tell us more about the special wine from Bakhmut.
The evening ends with a Ukrainian dessert, Ukrainian cheesecake and Napoleon cake, and a taste of rare Ukrainian dessert wine from Crimea.
A silent auction, including wines that are the last of their kind in the world, will raise money for an important initiative: rebuilding cellars to support the Ukrainian Wine Making Reconstruction Fund and Artwinery workers as they gather in a secret location to hand-package evacuated wines from Bakhmut to export to the U.S. There will also be a 50/50 drawing.
