MARTIN COUNTY -- Helping People Succeed's annual Taste of Success International Wine Tasting will take on a new look this year, thanks to Renato's Italian Ristorante and Ian's Tropical Grill.

The fundraising event will be from 6 to 9 p.m. on April 13 at Harbour Bay Plaza in Sewall's Point. Admission is $60 per person in advance and $75 at the door. VIP tickets will be $125 in advance and $150 at the door.

Wine Lovers are $500 per person, and includes an invitation to a wine dinner to be held in advance on April 5 at Renato's Italian Ristorante. Wine Lovers will also receive special recognition and reserved seating in the VIP Lounge.

The evening will include live entertainment, a silent auction, an Art for Autism exhibit and sale. Guests will also have an opportunity to win an exquisite piece of jewelry donated by Jewelry Design Studio.

With the retirement of long-time Harbour Bay Gourmet wine coordinator Jeff Schagrin, the VIP Lounge will move to Renato's Italian Ristorante at the west end of the Plaza. Renato Maira, owner and chef at Renato's Italian Ristorante and Eric Grutka, owner and chef of Ian's Tropical Grill, will provide culinary delicacies in the VIP Lounge. Mr. Grutka is also coordinating the wine distributors for the Taste of Success, now in its 27th year.

Committee co-chairs for the Taste of Success are Dr. Kim Dettori and Lynn Graff Smith. Other committee members include Melissa Desposito, Pat Long, Lynn Austin, Donna Robles, Brandon Woodward, Dave Basom, Paul Cazzola, Shawna Gallagher Vega and Amy Pearlstine-McNally. The Art for Autism exhibit is chaired by Ginny Jones and Palmer Holliday, who work with the after-school autism programs throughout the year.

Tickets will be available online. For more information, call (772) 320-0781 or email jahern@hpsfl.org.
