The University of Minnesota women’s basketball staff held a wine tasting event Monday night in TCF Bank Stadium’s President’s Suite. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward the Golden Gophers’ foreign tour of Italy in summer of 2018.
The event started with a social hour featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres. Throughout the evening, team supporters had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items including signed basketballs and a Gopher football Row the Boat package. Wine tasting and a live auction, for experiences including a road trip and an insider game day, followed.
The Gophers plan to travel to Italy next August for basketball and priceless cultural experiences. Cities on the itinerary include Florence, Venice and Rome.
