The Seventh Annual Wine & Dine in the D, an evening of gourmet food, fine wine, and jazz music, will take over the entire fourth floor of the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel on Thursday, October 12, 2017. The event benefits the myeloma community in Metro Detroit and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), which is committed to accelerating the development of treatments for multiple myeloma, an incurable blood cancer.
The evening begins at 5:30 with a one-hour roundtable discussion led by some of the most prominent medical experts in multiple myeloma from around the country, and is designed to educate and inform patients and caregivers about the many new treatment options available to patients today.
The “wining and dining” begins at 6:30 and includes specialties from some of Metro Detroit’s top restaurantsIn addition, guests will sample selections from top Michigan and California wineries as well as Michigan craft beer and libations. Famed Detroit jazz artists Ursula Walker and the Buddy Budson Quintet will provide the entertainment, while attendees enjoy the food, libations and a silent auction.
A Patron-only After-Glow Reception in the Founder’s Room caps off the evening with desserts and an exceptional assortment of aged, vintage Champagne. “These are ‘grower Champagnes,’ which means the family-owned producer grows the grapes and handcrafts a small production of estate-bottled, elegant wines,” stated Moss, adding that the After-Glow reception is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try some of these rare Champagnes. (Note: this may change. However, we always have some wonderful wines donated by some special friends.)
Tickets for Wine & Dine in the D are $175 each, or $275 for a Patron ticket, which allows the purchaser to attend the After-Glow Reception as well. Sponsorships are available and tickets are free for multiple myeloma patients.
