Since 1999, Heart’s Delight has raised nearly $20 million for the American Heart Association’s vital efforts to end heart disease and stroke. And this weekend you have the opportunity to add to that total while enjoying world-class food and drink.

The 2018 Heart’s Delight grand tasting and auction are from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday at The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C. It will feature a robust silent auction reception with chef stations and wine, beer and cocktail stations; as well as a live auction led by Sotheby’s wine auctioneer Jamie Ritchie. Notable auction lots include culinary experiences featuring premier chefs, exciting trips, and wine packages.

The event will include more than two dozen wines from top producers in the Bordeaux region and the U.S.  Among the participating celebrated chefs from across the country will be many local faces including Amy Brandwein of Centrolina, Kwame Onwuachi of Kith & Kin, and Javier Cuesta of Taberna del Alabardero.

Tickets to the 2018 Heart’s Delight grand tasting and auction are $250 and available for purchase online.
