La Festa del Barolo is fast approaching. We have put together a set of tantalizing lots for our Charity Auction. Traditionally, La Festa del Barolo’s Charity Auction has supported children’s charities. We will do that again this year. These are some of the highlights.
To benefit The Zone and the Blau Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disease at Kravis Children’s Hospital in The Mount Sinai Hospital:
