First Look for Charity Wine Sponsor Trinchero Offers Wine Tastings

Trinchero Family Estates, a family-owned and operated winery based in Napa Valley, partnered with Jewel Osco to offer wine tastings of selections that will be available at the Chicago Auto Show's black-tie charity gala, First Look for Charity. The tastings will take place tomorrow, Jan. 27 at 12 area Jewel locations from 2-5 p.m., and will feature California wines including Joel Gott Chardonnay, Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc and the new Menage a Trois Decadence Cabernet.

Jewel shoppers who attend the tastings will also have the chance to win two tickets to the Chicago Auto Show that will run from Feb. 10-19 at McCormick Place. 

First Look for Charity will take place 7-11 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 9 at McCormick Place. Now in its 27th year, the event has raised nearly $48 million for Chicago-area charities. Charity gala attendees will be treated to complimentary hors d'oeuvres; champagne, wine, beer and soft drinks; and special entertainment presented by the automakers in their displays.

Benefactors in attendance also have the chance to win a new 2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible or 2018 Expedition, both compliments of Ford and the Chicagoland and northwest Indiana Ford dealers.

"The Chicago Auto Show is uniformly regarded as one of the finest auto shows in the nation, but the charitable cause demonstrates that this auto show is about more than just vehicles and accessories," said John Hennessy, chairman of the 2018 show. "It's also about giving something back to the community."

The 18 organizations participating in this year's First Look for Charity predominantly are children-oriented. Some operate on a global level; others, locally. The charities use the proceeds they receive in their efforts in the Chicago area.
