When you’ve got silent and live auctions that include rare and in-demand vinos, and a trip to the wine country aboard a private jet, you can expect to end the night with a sizeable sum. Throw in generous pours and gourmet nibbles (the bacon-wrapped dates were a crowd fave), and you’ve got Share Our Wine Foundation’s wildly popular Auction Orange County. In the eight years since its launch, the auction has raised close to $1 million for charities like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, Orangewood Children’s Foundation and Festival of Children—and drawn power players like Sandy Segerstrom Daniels; Wahoo’s Wing Lam and his wife, Kelly; and South Coast Plaza’s Debra Gunn Downing. And that’s something we can all raise a glass to! Photos by Reza Allah-Bakhshi
