Ted Lindsay Foundation Celebrity Wine Pour

This year’s Ted Lindsay Foundation Celebrity Wine Pour paid special tribute to its founder, Ted Lindsay, who passed away March 4, 2019. Many Red Wing alumni came out to support the event, which was held at the San Marino Club in Troy. Over 230 attending guests enjoyed wines from Casa Dumetz, a strolling dinner and auction. The Celebrity Wine Pourers featured Paul W. Smith and Frank Beckmann from WJR, Deena Centofanti and Jay Towers from Fox 2, as well as former Red Wing John Ogrodnick and his wife BettyAnne. The silent/live auctions raised $16,000, with all proceeds benefiting Autism research and educational programs.
