The JBF Gala Dinner and Auction is still several weeks away, but our silent auction is already up and rolling online. The packages are as exciting as ever, including a spot in an Italian-wine class at the Astor Center, a Daniel-Boulud restaurant hop, and a weekend in Sonoma Wine Country. Visit www.jbfauction.cmarket.com to learn more. We’re constantly adding new packages, so check back often! Bidding will remain open through November 8, with the silent auction taking place on November 10 at the magnificent Four Seasons Restaurant. As always, all proceeds will go toward supporting the James Beard Foundation.
