Celebrate public television and local programming in Rhode Island with a night of food, wine, fundraising, and fun! The festive spring event features wine tastings of fine domestic and international vintages selected for this event from the cellars of local purveyors and private donors. Savory small bites are prepared by chefs from more than a dozen of the best restaurants, caterers and confectioners in Rhode Island and southeastern New England.
The centerpiece of the event is our public television celebrity guest, Lidia Bastianich, who meets and greets attendees during the Champagne VIP reception from 6:15 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The guest of honor then mingles with guests and partakes in the wine and food displays. Time will also be allocated for a book signing. Lidia’s books include her new memoir My American Dream: A Life of Love, Family, and Food and Lidia’s Celebrate Like an Italian.
Throughout the evening, guests may also participate in an instant-win wine grab and browse the silent and live auctions offering boutique wines, unique gift packages, and faraway getaways. Entertainment is provided by local musicians. There is also complimentary valet parking.
All proceeds benefit Rhode Island PBS. This support allows Rhode Island PBS to continue delivering local programming and series that educate, inform, enrich, inspire and entertain viewers of all age. It’s a festive night of food, fun, and friends.
