THE AUCTION

Guests will enjoy spirited bidding and celebration throughout the live auction. Extraordinary lots, from exclusive Napa experiences and collectible wines, to exotic vacations and once in a lifetime adventures will be auctioned off to fund Duchenne research.

THE CAUSE

CureDuchenne is a nonprofit dedicated to saving the lives of children and young adults affected by a debilitating and fatal childhood disease called Duchenne muscular dystrophy. In September 2016, the FDA approved the first ever treatment for children with Duchenne. This treatment, a CureDuchenne funded project, called EXONDYS 51, is amenable to 13% of children with Duchenne. We are thankful and hopeful, but as our name states, we must remain focused until we find a lifesaving CURE for everyone affected by Duchenne.

Napa in Newport exists to better and save the lives of all 300,000 patients living with Duchenne worldwide. The 3rd Annual Napa in Newport Wine Auction is dedicated to building hope for the 87% of patients with Duchenne who are awaiting treatment.
