Mystery Wine & Dine event to raise funds for local young people


The St. Augustine independent Restaurant Association’s (SAiRA) Mystery Wine & Dine event is an exclusive, intimate version of the former St. Augustine Food & Wine Festival. The Mystery Wine & Dine features the same popular flavors of locally owned restaurants while also continuing to support THE PLAYERS Championship Boys & Girls Club in St. Augustine.

The 2021 SAiRA’s Mystery Wine & Dine will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 21 at various participating St. Augustine restaurants.

THE PLAYERS Championship Boys & Girls Club, located at 555 W. King St., St. Augustine, serves more than 100 children and teens daily through after-school academic and enrichment programs.

“THE PLAYERS Championship Boys & Girls Club gives St. Augustine kids and teens the resources they need to create their own great futures,” said Paul Martinez, president and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida. “The club is a safe place where they can connect with caring mentors, receive daily homework help and tutoring, enjoy a hot meal and learn beyond the classroom.”

As traditional events adapted to last year’s changing social landscape, the St. Augustine Food & Wine Festival was transitioned into a more intimate dinner format known as SAiRA’s Mystery Wine & Dine, where small groups of friends enjoy a five-course tasting menu with wine pairings at one of seven participating SAiRA restaurants.

The “mystery” behind this event is that the dishes may vary slightly based on each restaurant’s specialties, making it a unique dining experience.

The event will also include an online silent auction with bidding open to non-attendees who register online as well as guests.

This event is made possible through the support of Diamond Sponsor Care Connect+ and Platinum Sponsor Wes and Mary Jane Beeson.

Funds raised through this event enable THE PLAYERS Championship to continue providing after-school programs in five core areas: leadership and service, education, the arts, health and wellness and sports and recreation.
