As the Founding Sponsor of the Swirl Series, I have been privileged to represent Southern Glazer’s and participate in this event, which pairs an appreciation of fine wines with a commitment to supporting LRF.

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) – the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and serving the lymphoma community through a comprehensive series of education programs, outreach initiatives and patient services – will host the seventh annual Swirl: A Wine Tasting Event at La Gorce Country Club in Miami Beach on March 18.

National Swirl Series Sponsors AbbVie will join Founding Sponsor Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits to present attendees with a diverse selection of world class wines. Attendees can also expect delicious hors d’oeuvres to complement the tasting, as well as an exciting silent auction. The tasting theme this year is Iberian Peninsula, featuring wine trends from Spain and Portugal.

“As the Founding Sponsor of the Swirl Series, I have been privileged to represent Southern Glazer’s and participate in this event, which pairs an appreciation of fine wines with a commitment to supporting LRF,” said Eric Hemer, Senior VP and Director of Wine Education at Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, Master Sommelier, Master of Wine and Certified Wine Educator. “I have also greatly enjoyed witnessing the shared efforts of the Miami Beach community to support the LRF in their mission to fund the research that will one day cure lymphoma, as well as serve and educate all those impacted by lymphoma.”

This year’s Swirl Host Committee members are Nina and Walter Andrews, Debbie and Kevin Fennessey, Barbara and Jerry Freundlich, Midge and Mark Halpern, Sam Halpern, Leigh and Cory Olson, Simone and Zach Stein, and Florence and Bob Werner.

“Each year I’m honored to return to Miami Beach as part of the Swirl series, as it’s a crucial part of our efforts to raise funds to further research and advocacy for the lymphoma community,” said Meghan Gutierrez, LRF Chief Executive Officer. “It’s incredible to join the Miami Beach community for this event to witness firsthand the dedication the community has to LRF’s mission.
