6 P.M. at the Fleet Science Center, Balboa Park


The Fleet Science Center invites you to participate in our third annual wine dinner fundraiser The Magic of Wine, a spectacular evening featuring an auction of fine wines, experience packages and a gourmet wine paired dinner.

The evening begins with an elegant reception and silent auction, offering more than 50 lots of unique wines as well as special experience packages with a variety of gift certificates and select items.

Then guests will be treated to a multi-course wine-paired dinner curated by Gary Parker, owner of the WineSellar & Brasserie, and renowned chef Andrew Spurgin. Gary and Andrew are back by popular demand for the third year running and will once again create a magical and memorable dinner experience.

Before the final dessert course is served, guests can support the Fleet Science Center by bidding on five live auction items—private dinners, travel packages and other exclusives—or by raising their paddle to make a donation that will support the Fleet’s education programs.

All proceeds from this event will directly support the Fleet Science Center’s education programs, exhibits and ongoing initiatives. The Fleet is passionate about our mission to realize a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science.
