Marlins Pitcher José Fernández is pleased to announce his 2015 Uncork for a Cause charity program kicking off August 23rd with a special event to raise awareness and funding for the Marlins Foundation & The ALS Association Florida Chapter.
Join José and his special guests from 7-9 p.m. for the exclusive gathering at Cibo Wine Bar, South Beach. The event will serve as the release party for José’s 2012 Sonoma Reserve Red Wine. Only two barrels of this Cabernet blend were bottled for José’s charity program.
Guests will enjoy an enticing culinary menu prepared by Cibo’s Executive Chef Massimo Giannattasio, wine and beer, plus an auction packed with Marlins gear, local and national sports items and wine lots from some of California’s elite producers.
Admission also includes a limited-edition bottle of José’s Sonoma Reserve Red wine, a $45 value. Exclusive VIP tickets are also available and include a pre-event cocktail reception with José and his special guests, plus a VIP gift bag.
The Marlins Foundation is committed to improving the lives of our youth through education, the arts, and baseball, with a focus on children with special needs. The funds raised by the Foundation provide unique experiences for kids in our schools, parks, and on the water. The Foundation community partnerships and outreach efforts demonstrate the Marlins’ leadership in Corporate Social Responsibility and civic engagement.
The ALS Association Florida Chapter offers care to ALS patients living in Florida and funds research to find the cause and cure for ALS. We are part of a nationwide network of local ALS Association chapters with the same vision – a world without ALS. Through care, advocacy, research, education and support, we work to empower those with ALS to live fuller lives. Every year, The ALS Association invests millions of dollars in research conducted by the best and brightest scientists in the world. As the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS, we give help and hope to those facing a devastating disease.
On behalf of José Fernández, the Miami Marlins and our charitable partners, thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you August 23rd.
