Toast to Your Health Wine Auction

Join us for the 2022 Toast to Your Health Wine Auction. This elegant and fun-filled evening will benefit the Wilmot Cancer Institute at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and features notable wines from around the world, gourmet cuisine, and an exhilarating live auction.


Out of an abundance of caution given the current COVID-19 situation, and care for the community and each other, this event will now be held in the fall of 2022. A new date, time, and location will be forthcoming.


Thank you for your flexibility and your continued support of the University of Rochester Medical Center and the Wilmot Cancer Institute.


University of Rochester Advancement is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable event experience for all guests. Please visit for the latest COVID-19 health and safety requirements.

Her life was upended when she was diagnosed with leukemia and had to undergo more than two years of treatment. “It’s because of the care I got from doctors and nurses at Wilmot: that’s why I’m here to tell my story,” says Emily. “Without cancer research, I wouldn’t be here today.”
