Here's a wonderful way to help out Team Joseph on May 9th:

The Detroit Wine Organization and Team Joseph present “In Vino Speranza,” a charity wine tasting event on Friday, May 9 from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at Lingenfelter Car Collection in Brighton, Mich. Featuring more than 150 unique cars, it is one of the largest private car collections in the nation.

Proceeds from the event benefit Team Joseph, a 501©3 non-profit organization whose mission is to fund cutting edge research to find a treatment or cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello has been an advocate for Team Joseph since meeting Joseph Penrod in 2011. Given the Tigers game schedule, Porcello is not able to participate in this year’s event. However, he is excited to have the support of many Tigers Wives who plan to attend. “Team Joseph has been inspiring to the entire Detroit Tigers family,” said Erica Scherzer, wife of Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer. “Rick Porcello’s generosity and dedication has motivated us all to join the team and the fight against Duchenne.”

The wine tasting event will showcase more than 70 wines from around the world, Michigan craft beers, spirits and strolling dinner, from such restaurants as Andiamo, Uptown Grille and Rojo Mexican Bistro. Guests may also participate in a silent auction, Barrel of Cheer raffle and more.

Tickets are $85 per person and can be purchased at or 248.504.1962.
