Opera Theatre of Saint Louis hosted the 2009 Wine & Beer Tasting presenting the area’s bright young professionals with exquisite wines, the latest brews, a spattering of scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, and an enticing silent auction.

Attendees sipped fine wines from St. Louis area hotspots including Big Sky Café, Niche Restaurant, Robust Wine Bar/Shoppe, and more. The Saint Louis Originals presented hors d’oeuvres from Bryan Young Catering Plus, Companion Bake Shops, Eleven Eleven Mississippi, LoRusso’s Cucina, Serendipity Homemade Ice Cream, SqWires & Soda Fountain Square, and Vin de Set.

The event was co-chaired by Dee and David Stokes and Lisa and Kevin Whitehead. All proceeds will benefit the professional development programs for young artists at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.

The event was graciously supported by lead sponsor Morgan Stanley and additional sponsors Grey Eagle Distributors and Anheuser-Busch InBev, First Bank, Repco Graphics, Inc., Sansone Group, and TOKY Branding + Design.
