EXCITING PRIZES FOR BIG MAY FUNDRAISER
From 5 to 7 p.m. before our May 4th concert with Holly Near and friends, you can enjoy fare from the El Coyote food truck and make a donation for a “mystery” bottle of wine. We’ll provide corkscrews and glasses at tables on the Berger patio.
Silent auction bidding will be open for vacation getaways to Kauai, Sea Ranch, Santa Cruz, a Zen retreat at Fort Bragg, and a cabin in the Sierra. Vie for the chance to play a round of golf at the Fountaingrove Club and other courses, or bid on dinner for two at Salt & Stone and similar restaurants, fine wines, wine tastings, and gift certificates at stores.
At intermission, the live auction features a one-week vacation with Olivia Cruises and Resorts at the brand-new, all-inclusive Cabo San Lucas Hard Rock Hotel, valued at $5,000. All proceeds from both auctions go to 10,000 Degrees, the nonprofit that helps kids from low-income homes become the first ones in their families to graduate from college. Due to their counseling and financial support, 80 percent of the students they (and we) support get a college degree.
Rainbow women: Please solicit donations from your favorite businesses, so we have more to auction off. Email Bobbie Blair at firstname.lastname@example.org for suggestions.
