Our 2nd Cabernet with Battier event was held on Saturday, January 29th at Byblos Miami, and it was certainly a night we won’t soon forget! It was a thrill to be together with so many incredible people who share our mission to send more deserving young students to college.

The night kicked off with wine tastings from 5 outstanding Napa Valley wineries: Lyrix, Purlieu, CAMi, Rapport and Sidelight. Our guests then joined us in the gorgeous Byblos dining room for a delicious, multi-course Mediterranean meal, paired expertly with vintages from our Napa partners. The crowd was incredibly generous during our live auction, and showed huge love to the true stars of the evening - the five Battier Scholars who joined us for the night. Seeing our supporters both new and old, connecting with Maurice, Jewly, Julio, Elijah and Raqqya was the best possible reminder of why we do what we do.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a Battier event without some Karaoke. The Byblos lounge provided the perfect atmosphere for some late-night entertainment, where our guest dazzled with a wide range of songs – everything from Adele to Queen, Bon Jovi to Journey. Shane even busted out a few tunes himself – a Lou Rawls tribute, Oasis… there was something for everyone!

A huge THANK YOU to all who attended, as well as those who partnered with us to make the night a huge success, including Alchemy Agency and our generous Vineyard partners. Together, we raised over $220,000, every dollar of which will directly fund college scholarships for some incredible young scholars. It was an honor for the Battier Take Charge Foundation team to be the company of so many truly good people – those who have supported from the beginning, several who have pitched in as mentors, and many who are new to the Take Charge Family. The energy and love that were present inspired us to make 2022 one of our best years yet.

Our next Cabernet with Battier will be held on February 4, 2023, and we hope many of you will consider joining us. Tickets are officially sold out.
