Gourmet & Grapes
14th Annual Gourmet & Grapes
While we weren’t were able to get together to sip, dine, and celebrate in 2021, we are happy to announce the return of Gourmet & Grapes in February 2022!
Join us for an exquisite, four-day weekend at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort celebrating the 14th Annual Gourmet & Grapes, February 3 – 6, 2022. Gourmet & Grapes is the only fundraiser in the Lowcountry that brings together award-winning chefs and winemakers from around the world to raise money for cancer research. The money raised will support life-saving cancer research and patient programs at Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina.
During the weekend you’ll experience an event highlighting BBQ and bourbon, an Exclusive Black Tie Private Dinner, a Biking & Bubbles event followed by a Caviar & Champagne Brunch, the Wine Odyssey Gala featuring a Silent and Live Auction with renowned chefs preparing specialty favorites, vintner wine parings, and so much more!
Since its inception in 2009, Gourmet & Grapes has now raised more than $4.87 million for cancer research programs at Hollings Cancer Center. With stagnant federal funding, this contribution has proved invaluable in the cancer research conducted in South Carolina.
An Epicurean Delight
Gourmet & Grapes is an unparalleled event that couples local and regional culinary talent with award-winning wineries. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness that will support cancer research and patient programs at the Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina.
