Sensational culinary fundraiser at Ironwood Country Club

Desert Cancer Foundation’s Corks & Cuisine, A Gift of Life Reimagined, will be held at the prestigious Ironwood Country Club on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 6 to 10 p.m. As a signature event, Corks & Cuisine hopes to raise $100,000 to help pay $1 million in cancer care for local residents that need financial assistance. Every dollar raised translates into over $10 in cancer-related services.

Taking place under the stars with dramatic natural surroundings, guests will enjoy unrivaled pairings of food, wine and craft cocktails, with live entertainment by The Chase Huna Band. Cocktail and whiskey tastings have been added to the lineup this year along with wineries from the Napa Valley, including prominent vintners such as Trinitas and Grgich Hills. Ironwood Country Club’s Executive Chef Mark Sickenberger will once again present an amazing spread of exquisite culinary creations with unique food-stations surrounding the event.

Incredible silent and live auction items have been expanded this year to include not just a variety of outstanding wines, but also culinary, dining, travel and golf experiences.  Highlights of the auction include a unique Airstream Napa Valley travel package, an exciting VIP Ski Trip to British Columbia, golf at the most sought after private clubs and more. El Paseo Jewelers, the official jewelry sponsor of Desert Cancer Foundation, has also donated three luxurious pieces of hand-designed jewelry that will be included in the live auction and a special opportunity drawing.

The event is generously sponsored by The Tweten Foundation, Desert Regional Comprehensive Cancer Center, The Auen Foundation, Desert Orthopedic Center, El Paseo Jewelers, Desert Oasis Healthcare, D & R Insurance Consultants, Inc., Eisenhower Medical Center Lucy Curci Cancer Center, and others.
