Thank you to all who attended the 2024 Bacchanalia Gala Dinner + Auction, presented by National Bank Private Banking 1859.

It was indeed a spectacular evening of incredible wine, inventive food pairings, and unparalleled opportunities to enhance your wine cellar.

The evening kicked off with a prosecco reception at 6 p.m., and features nine additional outstanding wines paired with an exquisite five-course menu prepared by Executive Chef David Baarschers of the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. All of this is topped off with live music and dancing. And if that’s not enough, live and silent auctions throughout the evening feature extremely rare wines, epicurean getaways, Bard-related packages, and unique culinary experiences. A must for any serious wine collector!

Honorary Chair: Howard Soon, C.M.

Proceeds from the Bacchanalia Gala support Bard on the Beach.
