Each year, wine enthusiasts and collectors come together to raise glasses and funds for cutting edge Cancer and AIDS research at the World Tour of Wine.
Guests and celebrities enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime evening of rare tastings from some of the most exclusive private cellars in the country and a five-course gourmet meal while toasting the Foundation’s achievements in research.
Expected to attend this year are Honorees Doug Shafer and rockers Rush; actors Karen Pittman, Lena Hall, Montego Glover, Constantine Maroulis; Radio Personality Robin Quivers, Hall of Fame Baseball Player Eddie Murray, musician Brian Newman, President & Chief Operating Officer of RCA Records Tom Corson and more.
The World Tour of Wine is a unique tasting event, as each table has a “wine host” and features collections of wines from that host rather than the entire event tasting wines provided by a few select vineyards. The event will also feature a silent and live auction featuring all-inclusive trips to Napa Valley and rare experiences in music and sports entertainment.
The TJ Martell Foundation is the music industry’s largest foundation that funds innovative medical research focused on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS. The Foundation sources and supports early-stage research projects aimed at developing more effective clinical treatments for patients which otherwise might not be funded.
