Annual Wine Gala & Auction

The annual Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction is the premier wine event in the Philadelphia region, and it is PAFA's largest fundraiser, bringing in over $500,000 annually. Since its inception, Bacchanal has raised over $9 million to support student scholarships and education programs.

The black-tie evening includes a champagne reception, specialty wine tastings, multi-course dinner, live music and dancing, and two fantastic auctions—one silent and one live presented by Sotheby's.
