Tickets and table sponsorships are now available for the Virginia Museum of Natural History's “Grapes & Grains” fundraising gala on Saturday, May 18 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., with event proceeds to benefit the VMNH Foundation Discovery Fund.  Donations to the Discovery Fund directly benefit important museum programs in research, education, and exhibits.

Albermarle Cider Works, Blue Ridge Beverage, Devault Family Vineyards, Hamlet Vineyards, Hickory Hill Winery, Stanburn Winery, LLC, Villa Appalaccia Winery, and Virginia Distillery Company are all set to participate in this year’s event.

“Grapes & Grains” will feature delicious food, along with samples of a variety of wines, specialty beers, and spirits to be presented by participating wineries, distilleries, and breweries from across the region.  The event will also feature a scotch tasting where visitors can sample various types of scotch while learning about the distillation process. Visitors will also have the opportunity to bid on many exciting silent auction items, from fun vacations to elegant home décor items.

Tickets to the event are $50 and can be purchased on the museum's online store, at the museum box office, or by calling 276-634-4162.  Would you like to support the museum but can’t attend?  Tickets can also be purchased as gifts!
