BERENSON, Northeast Chambellan Provincial/Boston Bailli THE GOLDEN GOOSE has special meaning to the Boston Bailliage, whose aureate anatidae induction tradition has been treasured for decades. Not only did the custom continue at the chapter's holiday induction gala at Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar on December 10 but a new tradition was introduced: the David Berman Memorial Wine Auction. The late Vice Echanson extraordinaire David Berman was a Chaîne member for forty years; he will be greatly missed by fel- low confrères. At the reception, Bailli Provincial Honoraire John Vyhnanek offered a champagne-sabering demonstration. The auction wines were on display, and bidding was in full swing by the time the meal began. Executive Chef/Vice Consellier Culinaire Honoraire Daniel Bruce designed a wine-centric menu. His knowledge and passion for wine— he has hosted the Boston Wine Festival for nearly three decades—came through in the perfect balance between rare wines and delicious comes- tibles. Superb and sublime! After a frenzy of last-minute bidding, the auction winners were revealed. While some were foiled in their pursuit of the perfect bottle, the ultimate winner was the chapter's Rebecca Alssid Boston University Wine Education Scholarship Fund, with a donation of more than $3,000. Vive la Chaîne! G 36 :: C H A I N E U S . O R G :: 2 0 1 8 v 2 PHILANTHROPY
