Wine can function as a social lubricant and conversation starter, especially if you seal off a cocktail party and slowly fill the room with it. Uncork a good time with this Groupon.
- $55 for admission for two to WineFest 2013 (up to a $110 value)
Hosted by The 500, Inc., the 11th annual WineFest will be held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, November 2 at Cavanaugh Flight Museum. Throughout the evening, vintners such as Ben E. Keith, Naked Grape, and Premier Wines of Plano pour complimentary samples of wine from Texas and abroad while attendees nibble on cuisine from local restaurants, including La Madeleine Country French Café and Blue Mesa Grill. Meanwhile, guests can peruse a silent auction and dance along with music. Proceeds from the event and the auction support the Dallas Cultural Arts to raise awareness of local arts organizations.
The 500, Inc.
The 500, Inc.'s name stems from its very first fundraising campaign in 1965. Setting out to raise $5,000 for the Dallas Civic Opera, founder Polly Lou Moore convinced 500 individuals to each donate $10. It took only three months to collect every dollar. Since then, The 500, Inc. has aided more than 40 of the area's visual-, theatrical-, and musical-arts organizations by raising more than $12 million in donations and countless hours of volunteer support—all helping to honor the legacy of those first 500 mustaches doodled over Alexander Hamilton’s portrait.
