The "8th Annual Keels & Wheels Uncorked" will be held Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at The Mercedes-Benz of Greenway Plaza Dealership, 3900 Southwest Fwy, Houston, TX 77027
Guests are invited to attend alongside Master of Ceremonies Radio Host Sam Malone for an elegant evening of fine wines and exceptional food presented by some of Houston's top restaurants. On display at the event will be several classic automobiles, as well as a vintage wooden boat.
Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance Uncorked event serves as a fundraiser for Boys & Girls Harbor and a preview for the Keels & Wheels annual classic car and vintage wooden boat show, which takes place the weekend of May 6-7, 2017, at the Lakewood Yacht Club in beautiful Seabrook, Texas.
Participating restaurants are assigned a classic automobile or boat. The chef of each restaurant then selects a specific wine that they believe matches the classic automobile. The Chef then prepares a hors d'oeuvre that is paired with the wine to complete the epicurean experience for the attendees to sample and consume.
The "Uncorked" event will also feature luxury items and experiences in the form of a live and silent auction. Guests can bid on lavish packages including fine wines, spa getaways, hotel and resort stays, dinner certificates, autographed collectibles, Country Music Award tickets (previous years) and much more. Proceeds from both auctions benefit the Boys & Girls Harbor
This event is made possible with the support from our sponsors Lincoln Motor Company, City of Seabrook, and Bay Area Regional Medical Center.
The "Uncorked" event was established in 2009 as a means of raising awareness for Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance, which will take place this year on May 6-7, 2017. Keels & Wheels Uncorked takes place each March prior to the Spring showcase event, and has become one of the major sources of funding for Boys & Girls Harbor. To date, Keels & Wheels has assisted in raising more than $1.6 million for partnering charities.
