7th Annual Autumn Auction

The Hebron K-6 Education Foundation requests the pleasure of your company at its 7th Annual Autumn Auction fundraising event to benefit the children of Hebron Public Schools. The event will be hosted on Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:00 p.m. at the Blackledge Country Club.
Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in an array of delicious hors d’oeuvres, decadent desserts and lovely wines as they peruse the arrangement of silent and live auction items on display. The Foundation is fortunate to have the wine expertise of Richard Veilleux to take each guest on an adventure through wine regions located in places such as Oregon, France, Italy, Spain and Argentina. Rich’s experience in the beverage industry has stemmed over twenty years and he is currently working with a wholesale business called Opici Wine Group. Opici Wine Group was established with one simple goal: to help adventurous wine drinkers fall in love with exciting, high-quality wines. During this evening guests will encounter wines grown by small family owned vineyards from around the world. Varieties on sample vary from Pinot Blancs and Chardonnays to Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots. Although Rich is thrilled about all the wine varieties that his company represents he has currently become enchanted with a Argentinian Malbec called Mythic Block. It has a “tell-tale inky Malbec hue with a nose of freshly picked violets and ripe berries seamlessly integrated with spicy chocolate notes. Intense and full-bodied wine with notable structure yielding gentle tannins.” Ask Rich for a sample taste. Who knows? You just might want more!
The Hebron K-6 Education Foundation would like to thank our sponsors for the silent and live auction items that are being made available to you. Please support these businesses who have generously donated to us by frequenting them.
