Hall's Wine & Spirits Spring 2023 Auction Catalogue

Fine Wine & Spirits

Tuesday, June 6th @ 7 p.m. MT

This online auction features fine vintage wines & collectible spirits, including old & rare vintages from the cellar of Osteria De Medici that are being sold to benefit The Brenda Strafford Foundation.

Since opening in 1989, Dr. Barrie Strafford was a frequent and loyal customer of Osteria De Medici.  Over the years, this relationship grew into a deep respect and mutual admiration.  Until his passing in 2016, Osteria was Dr. Strafford's favourite luncheon spot.  And now, a selection of bottles included in this Wine Auction will honour Dr. Strafford's memory & legacy.  A portion of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to The Brenda Stafford Foundation (BSF).

The Foundation was established in 1975 by Dr. Strafford in memory of his late wife, Brenda. Since then, it has grown to operate and support many local and international programs and services including a focus on research and innovation to support the populations they serve.

Locally in Alberta, BSF owns and operates five continuing care communities for seniors in Calgary and Okotoks.  The foundation also provides local community programs including BSF's 'Heart Home Network' - a second stage shelter providing a safe environment and services for women and children who are fleeing domestic violence.

Internationally, BSF owns a variety of medical clinics and provides various healthcare services in Haiti, Jamaica, and Dominica to enhance the health, wellness, and quality of life of underserved regions in the Caribbean.

All BSF's diverse activities are guided by a common philosophy: The preservation of dignity and the pursuit of happiness.

You can support BSF by donating directly through the donation link below.
