“Uncorking Success” – 8th Annual Fall Wine Tasting

Nov 5, 2017 — 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Statistics show that teens experiencing homelessness are 87% more likely to stop going to school and four times more likely to dropout – a staggering fact. Youth On Their Own, a local nonprofit, is dedicated to changing those odds… and we’re inviting you to join us in supporting the high school graduation of Tucson’s homeless youth. Our Annual Fall Wine Tasting is celebrating its 8th year – and we know that with your support, it’s going to be the most successful year to date! This year’s festivities will take place from 11:00 AM to 2:00pm on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at the cozy and distinguished Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar.

This event will feature:

  • Live entertainment
  • Spirit of Success raffle, with a chance to win 20+ high-quality items
  • Silent auction with 10 one-of-a-kind prize packages
  • Decadent signature hors d’oeuvres from Fleming’s
  • Tastings with an extensive assortment of fine wines and champagnes
