Frank Ski is notably known for being a radio host, restauranteur and a veteran of positive contributions to his community. For 8 years, Frank Ski has produced an extraordinary affair incorporating his love of wine and philanthropy, and this year is no different. Keeping with this legacy, Ski welcomes his 9th annual Celebrity Wine Tasting and Live Auction benefitting his Frank Ski Kids Foundation.
Hailed as one of the most anticipated annual events in Atlanta, Ski’s fundraiser has been known to bring out the best of charitable givers. Previous years’ attendees and familiar faces have included Mayor Kasim Reed, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Martin Luther King III to name a few. This year’s event will be hosted by a tag team of Hollywood elite. Actor Boris Kodjoe and his actress wife Nicole Ari Parker will co host with former Def Jam CEO Kevin Liles and wife Erika. The couples will share the honor of presenting Ski’s signature wine tasting and live auction. The wine tasting will feature rare and vintage varieties such as Silver Oak and Opus One. The live auction boasts premium items, with some auctioned pieces from the past being authentic sports memorabilia, a chestnut Arabian horse and an exclusive VIP wine tour and dinner in Napa Valley, CA. All proceeds from the auction and wine tasting go to further support the Frank Ski Kids Foundation.
The Frank Ski Celebrity Wine Tasting and Live Auction is not just the social charity event to see and be seen, but it also honors those who are dedicated to helping shape the next generation. The Frank Ski Kids Foundation is an opportunity to provide children with the necessary education and hands-on experiences vital to furthering their ambitions. The foundation is responsible for hosting Ski’s annual “Youth Bowl” football game and awarding scholarship money to university bound students. This years sponsors Carrabba’s Italian Grill, State Farm Insurance, Fisker Automotive, V-103 and Peachtree Communities not only understand, but share Frank’s compassion for uplifting our youth. It has been estimated that in the 8 years of the benefit, close to $1 million has been raised for the foundation.
