Ever been to a Cognac auction in Cognac?


Twenty-four decanters and exceptional blends, offered by Cognac houses, and an art piece, were sold under the supervision of Laurie Matheson, Luc Dabadie and Marie Calzada – wine experts at Artcurial –, and the gavel of Artcurial’s auctioneer Maître Hervé Poulain, in presence of 700 French and international guests, to raise money for the Fondation Apprentis d’Auteuil, an organization which has benefited underprivileged youth and the most vulnerable families for 150 years.

On October 2nd, we will be supporting friend-of-the-Truffle, Amy Cohen Epstein (John Thomas Dye ’88, Brentwood ’94), at KICKIN’ CANCER 5K Walk/Run on San Vicente in Brentwood. Celebrating 15 years of this magnificent event, the walk/run serves as the Lynne Cohen Foundation’s signature and largest fundraising event. Kickin’ Cancer brings together a huge community of women, men and children to support the women in their lives. It is a non-competitive event (no timing) and super fun for the whole family; the older kids love to run/walk the 5K, while there is an adorable Kiddie 1K for the little ones.
