Support the Arts, Dine in Style at Pavilion Partners’ Wine Dinner and Auction

By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS – The Pavilion Partners, the official volunteer organization of The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, will hold its 21st Annual Wine Dinner and Auction Sunday, March 22 at 5:00 p.m. on The Pavilion’s Main Stage. This exclusive dinner funds scholarships for local students pursuing the fine arts in higher education.

It will be an evening of fine wine, provided by Flora Springs Napa Valley Family Estate, delicious food, courtesy of Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, live entertainment, and good company. Table sponsorships are available as well as individually priced tickets.

This year’s event will honor John Komes, Founder, President, and Proprieter of Flora Springs Vineyards and Winery. As one of the biggest family owned grape growers in Napa Valley, Flora Springs has been an instrumental part of making the Wine Dinner the success that it has been for over 20 years.

In addition to fine food and wine, the evening will feature exciting raffle and auction items, an exclusive silent auction, complementary valet parking and a live performance from a current scholarship recipient. This year’s event chairs are Jacque Everson, Lisa Koetting, and Amy Odom.




The annual Wine Dinner continues a tradition of raising funds for scholarships awarded to local high school students planning to study in the arts in college. In 2019, 270 guests attended the dinner and raised approximately $250,000. Since its inception, Partners has awarded more than $1.3 million in fine arts scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded to students in the following categories: vocal music, instrumental music, theater arts, dance, visual arts, and computer graphic arts. The awards, based on talent and academic performance, are presented each spring. The remaining net proceeds from the event benefit The Pavilion’s educational outreach programs including Fine Arts Education Day, Musical Scores, and Children’s Festival.
