Cabernet With Battier Returns to Benefit the Battier Take Charge Foundation

After a brief hiatus due to COVID-19, Cabernet with Battier will return to Byblos Miami on Saturday, Jan. 29. Heidi and Shane Battier established the event to benefit The Battier Take Charge Foundation, a nonprofit organization created by the Battier family to provide college scholarships and educational opportunities for underprivileged youth.

The inaugural event was held in January 2020 and raised over $170,000 for the foundation. It begins with a full wine tasting from eight highly acclaimed Napa Valley vineyards: Lyrix, Garguilo, Rapport, Sidelight, Purlieu, Le Pich and Covert. Additionally, Benchmark Wines will also showcase some rare wines and champagne throughout the evening. The wine tasting will be followed by a decadent dinner for 100, featuring popular eats from Byblos Miami paired with wine selections. Following dinner, guests will join the Battiers in Byblos’ private event suite for a karaoke-themed after-party. 

“We couldn’t be more thrilled than to be bringing back Cabernet with Battier this year, to marry great people, great food and unbelievable wine all for this important cause,” says Shane Battier, a former NBA and Miami Heat player. “Through the Take Charge Foundation, Heidi and I have committed to continue providing resources for the development and education of underserved youth right here in our own backyard–affording them tools to build the lives they dream of.”

Past attendees of The Battier Take Charge Foundation’s events have included Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Pat Riley, James Jones, Jimmy Buffet, Norris Cole, Udonis Haslem, Jon Secada, Pierre Garcon, Larry Johnson, Gabrielle Union, Jay Williams, Micky Arison and Ken Jeong. 

Tickets are available in many tiers, beginning with limited single-person tickets, available at $1,000. Tables are available, ranging in price from $10,000 to $20,000. Attendees must be 21 or older.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
