Bellows International, West Indies Corporation and Prestige Wine Group are presenting the second annual “Wine to the Third Power” on Monday, Nov. 16, as a fundraising event for the Humane Society of St. Thomas. The celebration of fine wines will feature 45 wineries offering over 165 wines for unlimited tasting, an extravagant dinner buffet, a silent auction of “Wine, Dine and Shine” items, and a live auction of four exclusive visits to wineries.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the ballroom of Marriott’s Frenchmen’s Reef Beach Resort. Tickets are $100 each. An added feature will be the opportunity to purchase any of the wines at wholesale prices. Ten percent of the wine sales will be donated to the Humane Society along with all proceeds from the auctions and half of the ticket sales. Tickets for the event are available from Bellows International, the Humane society of St. Thomas, The St. Thomas-St. John Chamber of Commerce, How ‘Bout your Pet, Home Again and Society board members.
The silent auction will feature exclusive bottles and cases of wine, stemware from Riedel, gift certificates for fine dining on St. Thomas, and jewelry donated by the island’s superior shops. The live auction will offer exclusive tours and lodging at some of the world’s most exclusive wineries in the United States and South America.
“This gala of wines is a wonderful event, as anyone who attended last year will tell you, and will assist the Humane Society with the completion of its new Animal Care Campus and on-going operational expenses,” said Joe Aubain, president of the Humane Society Board of Directors.
