Carla Markell is the former First Lady of Delaware. She continues to devote her time to several charitable efforts, including at-risk children and encouraging volunteerism in the First State. She also enjoys supporting the visual and performing arts and makes it a point to attend every show, if possible, at the Delaware Theatre Company.

Last year the DTC held it’s Wine Feast & Auction at the Delaware Art Museum. This year it moves to its new location at the Chase Center. Joe del Tufo Photography.

In 2016, I was asked to join a small group of community and arts enthusiasts to rekindle the Wine Feast & Auction benefitting the Delaware Theatre Company.

I gladly joined this group for two reasons: First, I adore Bud Martin and the Delaware Theatre Company and all the great work they do to bring fantastic art to our community. I have seen them transform lives through theater and playwriting every place from the Ferris School to nursing homes, to summer youth programs and, of course, to main stage productions.

 

Secondly, I am enthusiastic about supporting and encouraging the vitality of our city and our state. The Wine Feast & Auction is an opportunity to bring some of our best local restaurants and wine and craft beer purveyors together to showcase the fantastic foodie scene here in Wilmington. It’s a great value per ticket and a nice way to entertain business clients and friends from in or out of town.

This year the Wine Feast takes its next big step as it moves its celebration to the Chase Center on the Riverfront.  This will create more space for guests to move around, provide easier parking and better facilities from which vendors can set-up and serve. Please join us on Friday, Nov 2nd.

Food and beverage stations will be located throughout the event space, and guests can taste any number of wines and craft beer throughout the evening.

Tickets to the Wine Feast are available by calling the Theatre Company box office at 302-594-1100. I hope you’ll be able to come help support Delaware’s only fully-professional, year-round theatre. As they say in the theatre world, “Life is a Cabernet!”
