Save The Date

Dear Friend of Nevada City Rotary:

We are hard at work on the second edition of our Adventures & Wine Auction. Please save the date for Friday, April 27th. The Vintner's Dinner is at the Nevada City Winery from 5 to 6:30 and the auction is at The Miner's Foundry from 6 to 9. This is the Club's major fundraiser that funds all our scholarships and other programs for area young people.

The auction will be even better than last year's, with dozens of new, interesting lots. The highlight will be the live auction of packages, which will include lodging, good food, and great wine. Especially energetic bidding is expected for these much-desired lots: a home stay outside Barcelona, Spain; a jeep adventure to a rustic retreat in Old Cabo; a stay at an Arizona Rancho; a condo on Kauai; a vacation stay in Jackson Hole, WY with a range-front view of the Grand Tetons; two Girls' Night Out packages and the Root Beer Package - a party for your kids or grandkids. The $25 ticket price includes hors d'oeuvres, wine to taste from 10 or more Nevada County's best wineries, a no-host bar, three fun raffles (tickets at $1) and the live and silent auctions. It will be the best party of the year!

New this year is a fabulous, upscale, and delightful Vintner's Dinner featuring a four-course meal prepared by one of Nevada County's premiere chefs to accompany wines poured by Nevada County's best winemakers. Each of five tables will be hosted by a winemaker who will pour his or her own wines. You will be among just 8 people dining with a host winemaker enjoying the fruit of the labor and wonderful food. The $75 ticket price includes not just the dinner, but also early-bird parking for the Auction and free entry to the Auction. This is limited to just 40 diners and will sell out. Make your reservation now at mcolantuono@hotmail.com.

See you on April 27th. Save the date!
