About Wine & Dine in the D

Started in 2010, Wine & Dine in the D is a two-part evening that includes an educational panel discussion by prominent myeloma doctors, followed by a “Wine & Dine” gala, featuring delicious food and beverages from some of Detroit’s finest restaurants, a silent auction, live music and more. In 2019, with the support of our participating doctors and increased awareness of the event, approximately 400 patients, caregivers and key opinion leaders in the myeloma community attended Wine & Dine in the D.  In 2020 we were unable to host an in-person event but instead held a very successful virtual panel discussion that was attended by over 200 individuals.  We bring together specialists from around the country for the panel discussion and provide a platform for Metro Detroit patients to learn about groundbreaking new treatments and speak directly to these leading doctors.

Wine & Dine in the D 2021

This year we are moving back to an in-person format but will also include a virtual (and recorded) option for those who can’t attend the live evening.  To still provide our multiple myeloma discussion and time for socializing, dining, and fun, we are splitting the event in two!  All attendees must be fully COVID-19 vaccinated in order to attend.
