Fine Wines and Fabulous Finds Auction

Title

Our Mission

More than 125 guests attended Salem State University’s sixth Fine Wines and Fabulous Finds Auction on Saturday, September 10. The evening was filled with laughter and fun, featuring gourmet hors d’oeuvres, high-end wine and a wonderful community spirit. Thank you to our attendees for raising their paddles to generate nearly $90,000 for student scholarships!

The university would also like to express a special thank you to Richard L. Elia, PhD, professor of Victorian Literature and publisher and president of Quarterly Review of Wines, for his extraordinary support of the auction over the last six events. Richard gave birth to the auction and then brought our guests unique lots, priceless experiences and unforgettable evenings. His guidance and expertise have made each auction a remarkable success—thank you Richard!
