AUTOSOL is proud to announce it is the presenting sponsor of the 10th Annual Iron Sommelier, benefitting The Periwinkle Foundation on Nov. 9, 2017. The event will be held from 6-10 p.m. at The Houstonian Hotel, where some of the city’s most prestigious sommeliers will compete for the title of the Iron Sommelier. Guests taste, compare and pick their favorite wines and presentations from local sommeliers.
The event, slated to serve 600 attendees, will ultimately benefit the kids at Texas Children’s Hospital as they take on their battle with cancer and other life threatening challenges. Periwinkle programs serve more than 14,000 children, teens and families annually by providing multiple camps to offer a break from their hospital routine, as well as meeting other children in their same situation – and just to feel like a kid again.
“The Periwinkle Foundation has been a wonderful organization to sponsor year after year,” said Doug Osburn, president and CEO of AUTOSOL. “The staff’s dedication to help improve children’s lives is incredible and AUTOSOL is proud to help sustain the camps for children suffering from cancer.”
