On December 13, 2009, celebrities, dignitaries, sports figures, and Atlanta's elite attended the Frank Ski Kids Foundation's Celebrity Wine Tasting and Live Auction at a private residence in Atlanta. Frank Ski, host of V103, the #1 urban radio show in Atlanta, gathered his friends for his foundation's signature fundraiser for wine connoisseurs and novices alike, to experience exotic and international wines such as Opus One, Silver Oak, Caymus Special Select, Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne and Frank Ski's international wines from Australia and South Africa, all for a great cause.
The website states that the foundation exposes youth to their future through science, technology, athletics and the arts. This past summer, the foundation's International Art Excursion hosted youth to an eight-day excursion to Florence, Italy. One student, who traveled with the foundation to the Galapagos Islands, was accepted to the prestigious Phillips Academy Andover, a co-educational boarding high school in Massachusetts on a full scholarship. She wrote a thank you letter to Mr. Ski and shared, "It still amazes me how these trips reinforce what I learn in school. They make me appreciate what I am studying and give me hope that one day in the future I can travel to those places and elicit the change that we really need in this world."
