WineFest No. 17--A Toast to Children's Health

An event to benefit children’s health research, education, and care at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital

*Café at Night* by Jimmy Reagan

Friday and Saturday, May 11 and 12 at The Depot, Minneapolis

Families are at the heart of WineFest No. 17, the Midwest’s most anticipated food and wine charity event. The two-day affair will celebrate the way families and the beautifully designed space at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital help kids heal faster.

Acclaimed honorary winemasters from preeminent family-owned and -operated wineries will make the event memorable, as will the gourmet fare, distinctive wine tastings, enticing auction lots, and lively entertainment.

This year’s WineFest featured art is Café at Night by Jimmy Reagan, an 18-year old Mendota Heights resident who has autism. Influenced by Vincent van Gogh, Jimmy is at work daily, rendering riveting images in bold, complementary hues. Read more about Jimmy Reagan’s work.
