Sipping with Seton Celebrates Fifth Year

Seton Medical Center Foundation – now in its 100th year of service – is pleased to announce the fifth annual Sipping with Seton event, to be held on Wednesday, October 3 from 6pm to 9pm at the beautiful Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City, host of the recently concluded 2012 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship.

This year, in addition to the usual offerings of rare wine varietals, tastings will include an artfully curated selection of artisan beers, spirits and inventive non-alcoholic beverages. Select vintages from Simoncini, Schweiger, Cline Cellars, Domenico, Highway 12, Volante, Corte Riva, and Castello di Amorosa will be offered, along with hand-crafted concoctions from Half Moon Bay Brewing Company and 21st Amendment Brewery.

The event will also feature select hors d’oeuvres specially created by Lake Merced’s Executive Chef, a silent auction and raffle, with prizes like a Champagne Brunch and Cruise for Two and a complete Golf Experience Package for Four valued at over $2,000.

Sommeliers from Wine Events Connection will be on hand to guide guests through the tastings, while Jason Elkin, host of the new television show “Uncorked,” will be filming a segment during the event as well as leveraging the latest in wine tech – including a 3D wine tasting demo. ABC7 Morning News Meteorologist Mike Nicco will once again preside as the Master of Ceremonies.

Now in its fifth year, Sipping with Seton has raised over $100,000 to support much needed programs, services and charity care under the auspices of Seton Medical Center. Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the purchase of a new ultrasound machine for Seton’s Labor and Delivery department.

Patron sponsorships are available from $250 and include 2 VIP tickets, access to the Private Tasting Room at the event, and 2 Comp Tastings at selected wineries at a later date.
