Tickets for Manhattan Beach's biggest social event of the year are about to go on sale - and if you wait too long, you might miss out, because Manhattan Wine Auction tickets sell out quickly. 

This year's event takes place on Saturday, June 8 and tickets go on sale at 6:00 a.m. on May 1. (Click here for tickets and more information.)

The Manhattan Wine Auction, now in its 30th year, raises funds for the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation and its Endowment Fund. Over time, it has become one of the most prestigious fundraising events in Southern California - and the hottest ticket in town.

”The Wine Auction is 30 years strong - but it never gets stale," MBEF Executive Director Hilary Mahan told MB News. "Every year guests discover a new favorite wine, new taste to savor, a new experience to bid on, or even a new friend...This year will be no different - everyone wants to take part.”

Individual tickets start at $350 per person, and $550 per person for "Reserve Room" tickets. Tables for the Center Court (full dinner experience) begin at $8,500 and go up to $26,000.

The event brings together more than 2,000 residents from the South Bay and beyond. Featured offerings include tastings from 75 distinguished wineries, distilleries and breweries; and samplings from more than 45 local restaurants and specialty food purveyors.

Other attractions include the exclusive Reserve Room, featuring cult and rare wines from Napa Valley and beyond; and the silent and live auctions, including fine and collectible wines and
spirits, luxury trips, one-of-a-kind dinners and experiences, jewelry, art, and sports memorabilia. Following the live auction, the event concludes with dancing under the stars to live music.

Last year's event raised $1.3 million for Manhattan Beach public schools. Over its 41-year history, MBEF has donated more than $100 million to the Manhattan Beach Unified School District.
