A Luxurious Evening Of Wine And Design: GM And Cadillac Sponsor 31st Annual Detroit International Wine Auction To Benefit CCS

"We are deeply grateful for the long-standing support of General Motors and Cadillac for the auction. Their generosity, along with that of so many other donors, helps us to increase the numbers of students who can experience the world-class creative education that CCS offers," says College for Creative Studies President Richard L. Rogers. "We are especially excited to hold the event this year at the home of creativity for GM, the GM Design Center, because it resonates so well with CCS's mission and will provide an unforgettable evening for our guests."

The Detroit International Wine Auction includes three levels of participation:
  • The Vintner's Private Reception for benefactor-level sponsors and ticket holders is 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the exclusive Cadillac Design Studio. It features the best wine, hors d'oeuvres and auction items, and the opportunity for guests to hear Louzada describe his favorite wines in a more intimate setting. The Vintner's Private Reception is sponsored by Strategic Staffing Solutions.
  • The Silent Auction Reception, open to all ticket holders, is 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Design Center's second-floor gallery.
  • The Gala Dinner and Auction, featuring wines, exclusive dinners, travel packages and original works of art, is 8 to 10:30 p.m. in the Design Dome. The Grand Lot is a four-day epicurean trip to Spain exploring Madrid and the Toro region, including a limited-edition vertical (2007, 2008, 2009) of Numanthia 5-liter bottles. The five-course dinner is served with wines hand-selected by Louzada.

An afterglow party follows dinner, and is sponsored by the Metro Detroit Cadillac Dealers.
