Join us for the first annual Wine, Shine & Dine event presented by Zoellner Arts Center's Friends Committee. Event chairs LuAnn Silberg and Kirk Kozero welcome you to the National Museum of Industrial History for an exciting evening of wine, beautiful jewelry by internationally renowned metalsmith Thomas Mann, caterer Karen Hunter's delicious food, and jazz music. This premier event was created for people passionate about supporting the arts. 

Arts education is at the core of Zoellner Art Center’s mission, rooted in the belief that the arts have the power to transform young minds and provide a needed outlet for self-expression and discovery. The center is committed to bringing that crucial outlet to children across the Lehigh Valley. More than 100 Lehigh Valley K-12 schools and groups have partnered with Zoellner Art Center for arts education, giving 80,000+ children access to music, dance, and theater. As public-school funding continues to shrink, the art center is filling the void to ensure the next generation experiences the benefits of arts education.

By attending Wine, Shine & Dine, you'll enjoy wine and food provided by Karen Hunter Catering, and have the chance to not only purchase one of a kind pieces of jewelry but to also meet their world famous creator, artist Thomas Mann.  In addition, a silent auction will provide the opportunity to bid on a variety of amazing items. A single admission is $100 or two for $175.  A portion of funds raised will directly benefit Zoellner Arts Center's presenting of education and community outreach programs.
