We are celebrating the 15th anniversary of Open That Bottle Night by highlighting hope, a rising theme at Bivona.

While guests will see changes to the event this year, the evening will continue in the tradition of Open That Bottle Night.

Over the last 14 years, this event has raised more than $3 million for Bivona Child Advocacy Center. Each person or couple is asked to bring a bottle of their favorite wine to share with their table at the event. The evening also includes a silent auction, wine tasting during the cocktail hour, dinner (when guests enjoy and share the wine they brought), and a live auction.
