Raise your glass and support Brenner Children’s Hospital by attending the ninth annual Cheers! A toast to children’s health to be held on Friday, April 12, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Old Salem Visitor Center. And just so you’ll know, THIS EVENT IS ALWAYS A SELLOUT, so order your tickets now!

Cheers! is one of Winston-Salem’s favorite spring traditions. You’ll enjoy more than 150 wines from around the world (don’t taste them ALL!), a fun sampling of North Carolina brews, and creative cuisine from some of our best local restaurants and caterers, AND you’ll also benefit Brenner Children’s Hospital. Having fun for a great cause!

Whether you’re a foodie, a wine aficionado or a microbrew fan, you’re sure to find some new favorite tastes and flavors at Cheers! The event is a perennial favorite with guests of all ages…over 21, that is! In addition to taking home a fabulous bottle of wine, you’ll want to check out the great silent auction items (including artwork by Ellen Christian and a wine tasting from Vin 205, for example) that will give you a reason to keep celebrating after the event is over.

Of course, there will be non-alcoholic beverages available, and we thank our attendees for enjoying the evening responsibly.

Thirsty yet? Don’t miss this opportunity to indulge your palate while supporting a great cause. Buy tickets now at Reservations are available only in advance, and this event sells out every year. For more information, call the Brenner Development Office at (336) 716-7985.

And remember, it’s all for the kids!
