Save the Date for Wine Auction

Saturday, May 8, 2021

Since its inception in 1988, Wine Auction has raised over $11 million in support of Lyric Opera of Chicago. Held every three years by the Women’s Board, Wine Auction 2018 netted a record-breaking $2.2 million and was named a “Top Charity Wine Auction” by Wine Spectator.

Under the leadership of the Women’s Board, Wine Auction 2021 will make a profound impact on Lyric’s ability to present grand opera of the highest quality to audiences in Chicago and beyond. This formal affair draws 400 guests from around the country and features a reception, elegant dinner, and live auction. A dazzling array of curated wines, unique dining experiences, and exquisite travel packages will be available for bidding.
