Manhattan Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
More than 1,800 people gathered at Manhattan Country Club for the 21st Annual Wine Auction that took place on Saturday, June 13, 2015. The event, which serves as the largest charity wine auction in Southern California, raised over $1 million for the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation.
The perennial summer event is much anticipated in the community, selling out each year. Manhattan Country Club has sponsored and supported the Manhattan Wine Auction since it began in 1995.
To set the scene for a spectacular gala, the Club converted tennis courts into a luminous outdoor dining room and dance floor with large-screen video coverage of the auction. Guests mingled, danced, and sampled fares from 40 local restaurants and 74 wineries, distilleries, and breweries. The highlight of the evening was the live auction, which featured collectible wines, exotic vacations, and one-of-a-kind sporting experiences.
