What does it cost to attend the virtual event?
You may attend the virtual Chocolate & Champagne Gala and browse auction items for free! You’ll just need to register.

We’re thrilled to offer Gala guests two unique experiences this year. Gather with us in-person at the beautiful Barrister Winery or experience the fun and elegance of the Chocolate & Champagne Gala from home with a Gala-To-Go Party Kit. Please visit our registration page for ticket, package, and upgrade prices.

Do I need to register? How?
Yes! Though this is a free event, all guests must register in order to watch the live stream or participate in the auction.

Registration is a two step process:
1. Visit the Event tab to register for the event. All guests (attending virtually or live will need to register)
2. The week of the event, we’ll send you a link to create an account with ILF Auctions (if you don’t already have one). Their LiveMeld program is an exciting and interactive new event platform that will greatly improve your guest experience, allowing you to stream the event and participate in the auction. Don’t worry, it’s very easy to use and doesn’t require you to download anything. We’ll be sure to send you a reminder.

Do I need to provide proof of COVID vaccination?

UPDATED 4/1/22: In-person attendees will no longer need to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test within 72 hours.

What should I wear?

The Chocolate & Champagne Gala is a black tie optional event. Guests are asked to wear a tuxedo, suit and tie, floor-length gown, knee-length cocktail dress, a pantsuit, or dressy separates appropriate for the formal occasion. Flooring at the winery may be uneven in places so we encourage a stable shoe appropriate for the occasion.
