Canadian-born comedian and actor Dan Aykroyd is to host the inaugural Niagara Wine Auction and Gala later this month. The former Blues Brother, an accomplished winemaker, plans to turn his epicurian passion to a good cause by involving himself in the event.

The Auction and Gala takes place in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, on June 22-24. The event plans to raise funds for the SickKids Foundation, although it will also support the local St Catharine’s General Hospital Pediatric Division.

The event includes a Winemaker’s Dinner, a garden party, and a main Gala Dinner, complemented by local award-winning and celebrity chefs. The venues are spread around some of the most beautiful vineyards in Ontario, and guests will have the opportunity to mingle with Aykroyd, as well as taste a variety of wines, and bid on special local wine packages.

Up for auction is an evening with Dan Aykroyd at his homestead in Kingston, Ontario. This includes a meal created and cooked by his personal chef, and featuring wines chosen by Aykroyd himself. Other items for sale include getaway weekends to several well-known vineyards in the area, golf tours, concert tickets, home theatre equipment, guitars, and more.
