A Little About Us

The High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction is the largest fundraising event for the High Museum of Art, the leading art museum in the southeastern United States. Grossing more than $3 million in 2018, the Wine Auction is the top charity fundraising event in Atlanta, the eleventh largest charity wine auction in the U.S., and the number one charity wine auction benefiting the arts. The Wine Auction has generated more than $31 million over the last 25 years!

Proceeds from the Auction are a vital part of the Museum’s exhibition and education plan, helping to make possible special exhibitions such as Winnie-The-Pooh: Exploring a Classic; Outliers and American Vanguard Art; and the highly anticipated Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors coming this fall.

Sandra Baldwin

Sandra and her husband Dan have been avid supporters of the High Museum of Art and the Wine Auction since they moved to Atlanta from New York. When they aren’t spending time with their two grown children and two precious grandchildren, the Baldwins enjoy traveling the world and collecting fine art and wine. Supporting the High is a natural fit for Sandra. She has been very involved in the Atlanta non-profit community, chairing many fundraisers and sitting on several boards, including the Atlanta Ballet, JDRF, Meals on Wheels Atlanta, New Leash On Life and more. Sandra looks forward to celebrating the very best of wine, art and food at the 2018 High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction in March.

Beth Park

Beth and her husband David have been active participants in the High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction since moving to Atlanta in 2006, with the Wine Auction being their favorite event to attend each year. Native Canadians with a busy family of three teenagers, the Parks love to travel with family and friends to discover new and exciting places. They love to not only drink wine, but enjoy visiting food and wine destinations and experiencing all the world has to offer. In addition to Beth’s love for the arts, she is very active supporting important Atlanta institutions for health and education, such as Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Girl Talk, Skyland Trail and UNICEF.
