A bit more about this fabulous fête:
The Côtes du Coeur event series is a premiere fund-raising campaign hosted annually in Dallas to benefit the American Heart Association. Sponsored by the Dallas Division of the AHA, the event series leads up to an annual fine wine auction and celebrity chef dinner. During its 25 year history, this culminating black-tie gala event is the largest of its kind, making it the number-one fund-raising gala in the nation for the American Heart Association. Proceeds from Côtes du Coeur go directly to the AHA for cardiovascular research and heart health educational programs both locally and nationwide.

Côtes du Coeur hosts approximately 1,200 business and wine industry leaders, community philanthropists, wine collectors and physicians. Attendees experience multi-course fine dining designed to showcase specific wine varietals dish-by-dish. The quality of the food and wine is a key differentiator for Côtes du Coeur.
