|2021 marks both the 40th anniversary of the Sun Valley Wine Auction and the 50th anniversary of Sun Valley Museum of Art. This July, you are invited to join us for a memorable ruby anniversary weekend as we bring vintners and oenophiles together to raise vital funds for arts education and celebrate 50 golden years of Sun Valley Museum of Art.|
Join Sun Valley Museum of Art as we bring vintners, wine lovers and supporters of the arts together to raise vital funds for arts education. As our most critical fundraiser of the year, the Wine Auction funds SVMoA’s robust K-12 arts education programs and accounts for approximately 40% of SVMoA’s operating budget.
This year, we celebrate the Chappellet family and our hosts, Blakesley and Cyril Chappellet, for their steadfast support of the Sun Valley Wine Auction and for their unwavering commitment to SVMoA over the years. Continuing the tradition established by Molly Chappellet, who played a key role in organizing the inaugural Sun Valley Auction in 1981 with Glenn Janss, Cyril and Blakesley are proud to bring their passion for the finest in food and wine as the chairs for this year’s 40th anniversary auction. We are humbled by their support of SVMoA, both for the work we have done in the course of 50 years, and for all that lies ahead.
