Wine Gala guests will be treated to a Late Night Cafe following dinner.

But that's not all...Chef Nikol's creations will dance alongside Jazz Saxophonist Patrick Lamb. With Grammy nominations and albums on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Charts, Patrick and his band have catapulted to National billboard status. Patrick was invited to perform at the White House during the holiday Congressional VIP Tours leading to a meeting with President Clinton. Patrick also demonstrates a deep sense of community awareness and civic responsibility, performing for numerous fundraisers. Patrick Lamb is proudly presented by Brightstar Entertainment.
