TASTE OF THE VINE

august 15, 2020 | $150

enjoy a premium bottle of wine with every ticket purchase!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person Taste of the Vine event has been changed to an [UN]Event! Stay home, do what you want, and wear what you want! We just ask that you think about how your contribution will support the work of SDRI.

Save the expense of your evening’s outfit, babysitter and Uber, and join SDRI for the best [UN]Event of the season. Please use all those savings and more to sponsor or purchase tickets to our [UN]Event!

Your support will help SDRI in our mission of impacting people with diabetes through research, education, and care. SDRI has been on the cutting edge of diabetes research, education, and care since our founding in 1944 by Dr. William Sansum, the first US physician to manufacture and administer insulin in the treatment of diabetes.

Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS

What is an [UN] Event?
Taste of the Vine [UN]Event is a fundraiser without having to leave the comfort of your own home. It is a NON-Event, event! COVID-19 forced us to rethink our traditional in-person event, and we will have our [UN]Event in its place.

Stay home, do what you want, and wear what you want! We just ask that you think about how your contribution will support the work of SDRI.

Do I go anywhere on August 15, 2020?
No! That’s the wonderful part of our Taste of the Vine [UN]Event. You get to stay home, do what you want, and wear what you want! We just ask that you think about how your contribution will support the work of SDRI.
What does my ticket include?
Every ticket purchased will include a premium bottle of wine. Please be sure to include your address when purchasing your tickets.

The deadline for purchasing tickets to include your bottle of wine will be August 10, 2020.
