Uncorked is a popular event that attracts a vast array of leaders and influencers in the Baton Rouge community. For emerging young professionals and established business owners, Uncorked is a great opportunity to connect with other philanthropically-minded individuals who want to make our city a better place to live, work, and play."In addition to providing an outlet to host Forum 35's Uncorked, the USS KIDD Veterans Museum plays an integral role in exemplifying the Capital City's history," said Jacob Luneau, Co-Chair, Forum 35 Uncorked. "As leaders in the community who strive to better Baton Rouge, Forum 35 members also want to help preserve this history." Uncorked is a wine tasting competition. Participants are encouraged to form teams of up to 3 members and bring three of the same of their favorite bottle of the selected varietal - Pinot Noir for this event. Two bottles are opened for blind tasting and the third bottle is placed into the winner's pot. At the end of the night, the votes are tallied and the winning team with the favorite wine takes home the grand prize - typically 40-50 bottles of wine!
"By holding Forum 35's Uncorked event at the KIDD, we hope to give attendees a chance to immerse themselves in these historical roots while enjoying an evening of fundraising and wine tasting," said Blake Tolbird, Co-Chair, Forum 35 Uncorked.
