Taste for Teller

What is the Taste for Teller?

A wine tasting and silent auction that brings the Teller community and the Congress Park neighborhood together. Participants must be 21+ years of age. The wine tasting is sponsored by Marczyk’s Fine Wines, and items for the silent auction are donated by parents. In past years, auction items have included tickets to sporting events, certificates to local restaurants, spa packages, weekend getaways, and the students’ favorite – sleepovers at Teller chaperoned by teachers and office staff. Wines are also available for order from Marczyk’s that night and a portion of the proceeds are donated back to Teller.
