March of Dimes Wine Fest tonight

Tonight at Union Station is the 21st annual March of Dimes Wine Fest, a benefit for the foundation that works to help “give each baby a healthy start.”

This year’s benefit is bigger than ever, with more than 25 restaurants on hand including Cafe Provence, Capital Grille and Ingredient, and more than 100 varieties of wine from 11 distributors, as well as beer from St. Louis brewer Schlafly.

During the first part of the evening, a silent auction offers a chance to bid on 175 items, from jewelry to hotel stays to restaurant gift certificates. The event is 6-9 p.m. and tickets are $60 and can be purchased at the door beginning at 5 p.m.

The March of Dimes lists its grant recipients on its Web site, with Stowers Institute for Medical Research and Children’s Mercy Hospital at numbers one and two respectively.
