Sacramento residents and friends will not want to miss out on the 27th Annual Curtis Park Wine Tasting, Silent Auction & Beer Garden event Saturday, Oct. 14 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Sierra 2 Center.
This event offers a wide variety of “enjoyables” with something for everyone. It starts with the wine from wineries such as Matchbook, Michael David, Seka Hills, Alexander Valley and Curtis Park locals Larry and Dale Roddenborn with their Tryphon varietals. In addition to the wines, McDonald Plumbing HVAC Beer Garden returns with numerous choices from local craft breweries and Belgian influences, organized by Rob Archie of Pangaea Bier Cafe.
Then there’s the food, food, food. Sierra 2 Center tenant caterers Jeff and Leo from La Famiglia will offer a number of their customer favorites. Tower Café, Masullo’s, Freeport Bakery, Gunther’s Ice Cream, Dad’s Kitchen, Brasserie Capitale, Sugar Plum Vegan Bakery and many others will be on hand with delicious bites of all kinds. American River College Culinary Academy students will provide cooking demonstrations.
The Silent Auction portion of the event generates additional support for SCNA projects such as the 24th Street Theatre upgrade, treatment of the elm trees in Curtis Park, and funding for arts education programs for Bret Harte and McClatchy student clubs. This year guests can bid on such items as a website design by Heather Hogan, a refurbished antique trunk, the Create Your Own Flavor of the Month at Gunther’s Ice Cream, wine, certificates to your favorite restaurants, pet supplies, unique art, to name a few. All of this could not be possible without the generous support from top sponsors Cook Realty, McDonald Plumbing HVAC, Steffan Brown, Towerpoint Financial and Grateful Dog Daycare.
