The Memphis Wine + Food Series Committee is a dedicated group of wine and food lovers who serve as ambassadors of the Brooks Museum by helping to plan and execute the museum's largest fundraising endeavor annually.

Meeting monthly between October and May, these individuals help the museum's staff to secure sponsorships, winemakers, chefs, coveted auction items and experiences and to attract a new and diverse audience to these always-fun and fabulous fundraising events: Brooks Uncorked, Grand Artisans' Dinner and the Grand Auction.

The funds raised through the series directly impact the world-class education programs that serve the Memphis community.
