St.Vincent’s Meals on Wheels Charity Benefit to celebrate the birthday of Sister Alice Marie Quinn – took place at Vibana 210 S Main Street, Los Angeles.
What was the purpose of the event? To raise money for Meals on Wheels and to celebrate the contributions and birthday of Sister Alice Marie Quinn.
What were the highlights of the event? Awesome Silent auction which included Riedel in almost every wine auction lot.
How were the attendees’ reactions to Riedel (initial impressions, quotes etc.)? The raffle ticket box for a chance to win a bounty of Riedel was fuller than any of the other raffle boxes.
The original clear, lyre-shaped Amadeo decanter ($395) was introduced in 2006 to commemorate Riedel’s 250th anniversary, the name a nod to fellow Austrian, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose 250th birthday was also celebrated that year. This hand blown, lead crystal decanter is shaped like a lyre and pours like a dream. Wine is simply decanted into the vessel’s wider opening and poured into the glass through its slender mouth. Effortless and pleasurable to use, the Amadeo decanter is a reminder that functional objects can be works of art.Read More
