Meet at the 24th Fundraiser Event
By Doc Lawrence
The High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction is the largest fundraising event for the High Museum of Art, the leading art museum in the southeastern United States. Netting over $1.7 million in 2015, with more to come this year, the Wine Auction is the top charity fundraising event in Atlanta, the tenth largest charity wine auction in the U.S., and the number one charity wine auction benefiting the arts. The Wine Auction has generated more than $23 million over the last 23 years.
Proceeds from the Auction are a vital part of the Museum’s exhibition and education plan, helping to make possible special exhibitions such as Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna’s Imperial Collections; Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion; and Seriously Silly! The Art & Whimsy of Mo Willems.
