Carlos Peña Wine Release to Benefit Families of Fallen Tampa Police Officers
September 26, 2010Updated at March 06, 2011 12:56
Carlos & Pamela Peña have joined the team to Uncork for a Cause with the release of a very limited production of Carlos Peña red wine from Napa Valley, California. Net proceeds from the sale of this wine will benefit the families of fallen Tampa officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab through the Curtis-Kocab Memorial Fund.
On June 29, 2010, Officer David Curtis pulled over a vehicle for a seemingly routine traffic stop; Officer Jeffrey Kocab arrived shortly after as backup. The next communication was a 911 call reporting two officers shot. Paramedics rushed both officers to Tampa General Hospital where they passed away later that morning. Officer Curtis is survived by his wife Kelly and four sons; Officer Kocab is survived by his wife Sara.
Carlos Peña’s wine will be released during a public event hosted by Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, the exclusive Tampa location for this wine, on Sunday September 26, 2010 at 6:00 PM. Please join the Peña’s and their special guests for an evening complete with the first uncorking of Carlos’ wine, hors d’Oeuvres from Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, wine tasting, silent auction items, a few surprise guests, and an opportunity to say thank you to those who put their lives in danger every day: members of the Tampa Police Department.
Limited to only 150 guests, the $50 admission includes a fantastic menu featuring Tenderloin Crostini’s, Chilled Jumbo Shrimp, Selection of Artisanal Cheese, Beef Satay and Mini Crab Cakes, a selection of fine wines and beverages. Carlos Peña wine will be offered for sale and the price includes a personalized autograph.
If you are unable to attend, proceeds from online orders of Carlos’ wine will also benefit the foundation. Online orders will be autographed by Carlos and shipped after the event.
