Saturday, June 13
Join us for our FREE virtual food and wine event featuring our winery and restaurant partners, celebrity and hospital experiences, and surprise interviews.
We're beginning the virtual festivities on Wednesday, June 10, when the online silent auction opens and runs through the event on Saturday evening. Bid early and bid often on the great packages including select wines from our winery partners! Proceeds will be used to support our patients, their families, and our brilliant physician-researchers.
Every year, WineFest and the Children's Health Discovery Fund play a critical role in pediatric research at the University of Minnesota – allowing us to jumpstart the careers of promising junior scholars and providing seed funding to help researchers develop the preliminary data necessary to secure NIH and other national grants. We are truly grateful for your incredible generosity over the last 24 years in galvanizing the community and raising more than $18 million in support of this lifesaving work.Joseph P. Neglia, M.D., M.P.H.
WineFest's role in this process may be even greater this year. Due to COVID-19, the U of M is now operating our laboratories at a much-reduced capacity with likely several months of lost work and resources. Your commitment is the first key to restoring our research efforts and changing outcomes for children everywhere.
