Wine Auction

Wine Auction 2021 has been postponed

Dear friends of Lyric,

Wine Auction has always relied on the philanthropic spirit of our friends in the hospitality, travel, and of course, wine industries, and in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize that these generous organizations and individuals may not be in a position to donate their products and services. This, coupled with an abundance of caution as we consider this massive undertaking, has led the Wine Auction Committee to postpone the May 8, 2021 event. We hope that this time for recovery will enable Wine Auction to return triumphantly, forging even deeper relationships with our partners and our audiences.

Thank you to all who committed their support to Wine Auction 2021—they are listed below, along with the supporters from our 2018 Wine Auction. We hope that you will keep them in mind as you consider purchases of wine or gift cards in the coming months. We look forward to sharing more information with you as planning continues, and we hope you will join us as we look to the exciting future of Wine Auction and Lyric Opera of Chicago.
