SMYRNA, GA (CBS46) -

Art and wine lovers are expected to pack Vinings Gallery Saturday evening for the fifth annual Paint the Town event, benefiting a children's charity.

The event promises to transform the gallery into a Napa Valley experience, including fine cuisine, carefully selected wines and renowned artwork, with proceeds benefiting Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Pure Imagination Charity.

"We are really fortunate that this year. "We are featuring two chefs from Napa Valley," said Layla Gunn, who founded Pure Imagination with her husband Mark. "We're bringing in four different wineries."

Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on auction items including limited-edition wine from featured winery owners and winemakers from several of Napa Valley's most coveted wineries.

"A lot of wine centric auction items, trips to Napa Valley, of course, Pebble Beach Food and Wine auction trip," said Gunn. "We've got an experience with the High Museum wine auction, so if you are a wine lover, this is the place you want to be this weekend."

Also available during the live auction, an original piece by featured artist Steve Quartly.

"Steven has recently created an incredible body of work on Napa Valley, so we thought that that would be a great fit," said Vinings Gallery owner Gary Handler.

In the past four years, the Paint the Town event has raised more than $400,000 to benefit children with catastrophic and life-threatening diseases.

The event will take place Saturday, Jan. 18, at 7 p.m. at Vinings Gallery, located at 4686 S. Atlanta Rd., Smyrna, GA, 30080.
