MARGARET ACHESON STUART SOCIETY AUCTION BENEFITING THE ST. PETERSBURG ART MUSEUM

One of the highlights of the Tampa art scene, the second annual Margaret Acheson Stuart Society Auction raised nearly $190,000 for the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg. Carte Blanche was a patron, corporate sponsor, and attended the event, donating a Carte Blanche wine dinner as one auction item, in addition to a Legacy Wine Lot from Nick’s personal collection, raising $10,500 for the museum. Festivities began in the Marly Room and the museum’s lavish gardens, and then moved into the gorgeous glass conservatory for a seated dinner from Michael’s on East in Sarasota.  St. Pete native Fred Schrader and his wife, Carol, of Napa’s Schrader Cellars were in attendance, as auctioneer Ben Ferdinand rallied a crowd of national wine lovers.  Check it out.
