Uncork the Cure

by Lexi Mestas




Uncork The Cure is a wine tasting event with all proceeds benefitting STAAR Ovarian Cancer, the only U.S. charity exclusively funding research for Low Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer. 

The event is hosted by Lexi Mestas, a 28-year-old, who was diagnosed with the rare subtype in February 2021. Since her diagnosis, Lexi has worked diligently to raise funds for research as Low Grade Serous only receives 1% of all funding for Ovarian Cancer research. With an average prognosis of 10 years, your dollars will go to critical research in helping to give the gift of time to fighters like Lexi. 

Tickets Cost $75 for an all-inclusive wine tasting event with food and entertainment in the lovely Sophiella Gallery in Downtown Mobile. Any donations made below $75 will be considered donations without tickets. Any donations made for $75 and above will be considered ticketed. 

Your ticket includes:

Various wines to taste

Food - including charcuterie and desserts

1 ELM handmade, gold leafed champagne flute

1 takeaway gift

Please note: There are only 50 tickets available for attending this event.

Where: Sophiella Gallery, 111 Dauphin St. Mobile, Alabama

Lexi thanks you for making her life a cause you support.

STAAR exists to fund life-saving research for women with low-grade serous, a rare and severely underfunded ovarian cancer subtype.  Low-grade serous represents fewer than 8% of cases of ovarian cancer and disproportionately affects younger women.  Further, being a rare cancer means that private donations are critical to fund research.  More research means more time for adventures, more holidays, and more memory making!
