Mini Magnums Make a Difference


Under normal circumstances, this one-of-a-kind wine dinner is held at the St. Regis Houston with more than 200 guests attending. However, due to COVID-19, this year’s event will have a whole different feel! Even though we cannot all gather together this year due to social distancing guidelines, we still want to come together to help make a difference in our kids’ lives. This may be a Mini Magnums, but with your help, we can make a MAJOR impact on the lives of the children and families we serve.

Mini Magnums will be a hybrid event, giving our guests maximum flexibility according to their comfort levels. Table Sponsors can host their table in their homes and/or have their guests join together virtually via Zoom.  

  • Choose the date that works best for you and your guests. Available dates are 11/7 and 11/14. Spaces are limited to 5 events per night, so choose your date now!

  • Following a very brief introduction to Literacy Now, each Sponsor and their guests will go to a separate breakout room via Zoom.

  • To make this as easy as possible on our Sponsors, food, fine wines, and flowers* will be delivered to the host home, and food and wine will be delivered to their guests.  *See sponsor levels below for details.

  • The online auction will be open from 10/24/2020 through 11/15/2020 for you and your guests to bid.
