Enjoy fine wines and hip cuisine at the May 26th Abilities Wine Tasting

Enjoy premium wines and spirits, gourmet cuisine from acclaimed chefs, fabulous auction items, free valet parking, and a museum tour at Tampa Bay's preeminent wine and food showcase, the Abilities Wine Tasting presented by Raymond James. The event's proceeds benefit returning disabled veterans served at the Bay Pines and James Haley VA Hospitals.

Purchase Grand Tasting and VIP Officer's Club tickets online at www.abilitiesfoundation.com.

After six years under a tent, three in an airplane hangar, and 13 at Tropicana Field, Florida's longest-running and most prosperous one-night tasting will be held at the Armed Forces History Museum (AFHM) Saturday, May 26th.

The shift in venue from Tropicana Field to the AFHM and date change to Memorial Day weekend provides a great opportunity to accentuate our fundraising mission to serve injured veterans.

The Museum offers a centrally located 50,000 sq. ft. facility with a phenomenal look at our military from WWI through today.

This event has received awards for 'Best Fundraiser for Charity' and 'Best Wine Event' from Creative Loafing, Weekly Planet, and Tampa Bay Magazine, and was named a top-five finalist for three consecutive years in the coveted WEDU Be More Awards 'Best Event of the Year.'

Enjoy wines, spirits, and craft beers from Casa Vinicola Zonin, Global, Premier, Southern, Republic National, Johnson Brothers, Stacole, Pic Pac, and Fine Wine & Spirits Warehouse. Taste signature dishes from Salt Rock Grill, Parkshore Grill, Island Way Grill, O'Bistro, 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House, Flamestone Grill, Red Mesa, Madfish Grill, Melting Pot, Cabot Creamery, Barry's Gourmet Brownies, Casey's Cookies, and Columbia at the Pier.
