2021 Event Dates

Sip & Support – A Live Virtual Experience to Support Polk State College Student Scholarships!

On October 8, 2021, you are invited to Gather your friends and family for a delightful evening at home featuring hand-selected wines, artisan food pairings, and an exclusive, LIVE virtual discussion with a world-renowned winemaker and an award-winning chef, all in support of Polk State College student scholarships.

Each Sip & Support ticket serves two participants and includes three demi bottles of hand-selected wines from the Napa Valley, paired with a custom charcuterie board filled with delicious artisanal fare. These items are to be enjoyed while participating in a live Zoom presentation with winemaker Jean Hoeflinger and Chef Bob Aungst. During the event, guests will be encouraged to interact with Jean and Chef Bob.

Also included in the experience is the opportunity to participate in a silent auction, which will open at 9:00 a.m. on October 6 and close at 9:00 p.m. on October 8.

Guests should be prepared to pick up their wine and charcuterie from the Polk State Winter Haven Campus on October 8 between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Special arrangements can be made for pick up if necessary.

Additional information including Zoom links and details for pick up will be provided upon purchase of tickets.
