THE WINE AUCTION

I'm proud to be a supporter and patient speaker at The Wine Auction for 2017; now in its 28th year. Proceeds from The Wine Auction will help fund the Regions Hospital Orthopaedic Trauma Center.

Accidents and injuries happen all the time; often creating significant life-changes. As a Level I Trauma Center, Regions Hospital and their Orthopaedic Trauma team help restore function and quality of life; every day saving lives and limbs through dedicated and talented orthopaedic physicians.

The Wine Auction has raised more than $11M for Regions Hospital and HealthPartners programs that directly benefit the community. Last year alone, they raised over $1M for cancer research thanks to sponsors and donors like you.

Help us celebrate The Wine Auction's 27th year! Your proceeds will help expand research to investigate and share best practices in trauma, invest in and train the next generation of orthopaedic professionals, assist families as they navigate the difficult course of acute trauma and recovery, and spread the word of this amazing program. Gather your friends for a night of celebration, including unique entertainment, and exciting silent and live auctions, interactive games, gourmet food and hand-selected wine from around the world!

Why The B.R.O.A.D. Supports the Team

The Ortho Trauma Team at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN became true lifesavers for me in July 2013. While driving my motorcycle I was hit head-on by an automobile driver trying to pass a semi-truck. I was taken by air to Regions Hospital and immediately put under the care of Peter A. Cole, MD and their whole team of surgeons and specialists.

While the Orthopaedic Trauma Team currently has 8 surgeons; Dr. Cole is quite dear to my heart. After 4 days of surgeries, sedation, and stabilization; one of the first faces I saw was his, next to my son. Dr. Cole proceeded to explain my extensive orthopaedic trauma, particularly to my left leg. From the femur to the foot; it sounded to me like shattered glass.

Dr. Cole explained my options to me in a way that I could understand, particularly given the sedation and shock of what I was coming to realize had happened to me.

I'll tease you by saying, Dr. Cole, his team, and so many others are why The B.R.O.A.D. still rides today 😉

Help Me Help Those That Saved Me...

I was astounded to learn that Dr. Cole uses my orthopaedic trauma case in his teachings and lectures. My case certainly was one of great challenge and I am thankful that I landed in Dr. Cole's more than capable hands. But further to that, I am blessed that I landed in his heart. The Orthopaedic Trauma team, led by Dr. Cole is one that I will forever carry near to my heart.
