Halfway to Winefest Art Brunch at Haven


We invite you to join us for brunch this fall at Haven for our Halfway to Winefest #25 celebration to benefit the Laxer Family Foundation. We have partnered with local art gallery CASS, Contemporary to commission a beautiful new piece of artwork curated by Joram Roukes to be unveiled during our family-style brunch. Roukes has participated in over fifty exhibits and select projects since 2006, and will attend the unveiling virtually to talk about this new piece. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to sip Taittinger Champagne from our sponsors at Republic National Distributing Company and Kobrand. Executive Chef Chad Johnson and Chef de Cuisine Martin DeJesus from Haven will collaborate on a menu that will nod to the historical mark of this special moment.


Tickets can be purchased in groups of 2 and will be seated at a family table.
