September 3, 2011 - The Wine and Cheese Place - St. Louis, MO
Matt & Leslee Holliday teamed up with the team to Uncork for a Cause for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The evening featured the release of Matt Holliday’s very own 2007 Napa Valley red wine, Holliday, a premium cabernet blend cellared and bottled by Hill Family Estate; Napa, California. This was a fantastic wine, not just something to display on your mantle.
The evening included a sampling of many wines provided by The Wine & Cheese Place, a fantastic selection of cheeses from around the world, finger foods, and a silent auction with autographed baseballs, bats, jerseys, photos and more from your favorite athletes. Matt Holliday's wine was available for sale with personalized autographs from the All-Star slugger, with proceeds from the evening benefiting the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. From their humble beginnings with one boy’s wish to be a police officer, they’ve evolved into an organization that grants a child’s wish every 40 minutes. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is the largest wish granting organization in the world! Thanks to all of those who came out in support for this incredible cause.
