Wanderlust abounds, especially in the Chicagoland area after a long, gray winter. Rather than throwing a dart at a wall map, find your next once-in-a-lifetime travel experience in an unexpected place.
Just because “Wine Auction” is the name of the event, doesn’t mean wine is the only thing up for auction that evening. Lyric Opera Wine Auction 2018 offers truly unique travel experiences, including a trip to London featuring a private tour and luncheon at Sir James and Lady Dyson’s home, Dodington Park; a golf trip to Cabot Links on Mike Keiser’s private jet; a fly fishing trip in Argentina; a magnificent safari in Zambia with award-winning photographer Sue Flood; and a getaway for six to Bordeaux with private meals at Château Margaux, Château du Tertre, Château Haut-Bailly, Château d’Issan, and Château Palmer.
The auction, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary and orchestrated triennially by the Women’s Board, works to benefit Lyric’s commitment to offer a multifaceted program of education, community engagement, and artistic initiatives, along with unparalleled creative expression.
