Participants bought silent auction In addition to tasting wine and bourbon, participants bought silent auction items including this commissioned painting of the orphanage by artist Joan Wilhoit (right). The orphanage dormitory was destroyed by the quake, but the girls, ages 3 to 17, escaped unharmed.
