The chef of each restaurant then selects a specific wine that they believe matches the classic automobile or boat. Each chef then prepares a custom hors d’oeuvre that is paired with the wine to complete the epicurean experience for attendees to sample. The “Uncorked” event will also feature luxury items and experiences in the form of a live and silent auction. Auction Co-Chairs Patty Peeples Busmire and Karen Deguerin invite guests to bid on lavish packages including fine wines, spa getaways, hotel and resort stays, dinner certificates, autographed collectibles and much more. Proceeds from the event and both auctions benefit the Boys & Girls Harbor. This event is made possible with the support from sponsors City of Seabrook, Bay Area Regional Medical Center and MCM Worldwide. The Keels & Wheels 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 5-6, 2018 at Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas. 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 $1.7 million for its partnering charities.
