Taste of Plumas auction
Plumas Arts board members are busy collecting items for silent auctions at Taste of Plumas on April 13.
Staff and board members work to provide services and programs that add to Plumas County quality of life. Fundraising efforts have become even more significant with recent losses of county funding.
Staffers are inviting donations of items or creative services to auction. Good quality second-hand items or unique curiosities are welcome. House concerts, dinners, events tickets, a dessert a month, guided adventures, picnics and vacation rentals have all been well-received. New ideas are encouraged.
Plumas Arts will provide a receipt of donation for the estimated value of any item, which will document the tax-deductible donation.
Those interested in making a donation may respond to this email or call Cary at the office at 283-3402. Plumas Arts can arrange pickup of items if needed.
Plumas Arts is pleased to welcome back many favorites and add new businesses to the array of culinary offerings presented at this annual showcase. So far, the following establishments have committed to attend: Alley Cat Café, American Valley Baking, Bella Luna Catering, Carol’s Café & Catering, Courthouse Café, Drunk Brush Wine Bar, Evergreen Market, Greenhorn Guest Ranch, Grille at the Chalet View, Longboards Bar & Grill, The Knook, Moon’s Restaurant, Nakoma Golf Resort, Pangaea Café & Pub, Patti’s Thunder, Quincy Natural Foods, Southern Accent Catering, Sterling Sage and Young’s Market.
The lineup still has a few spaces left for restaurants who want to join in. Call Plumas Arts at 283-3402 for details.
Beer and wine tasting is included in the admission price. The Brewing Lair and Eureka Peak Brewery will provide locally brewed beer. Some of the wineries that will be represented are Geyser Peak, Atlas Peak, Wente, Rodney Strong, Robert Mondavi, Perry Creek, Hearst Ranch Winery, 14 Hands, O Wine Co., Sobon Winery and Cigar Zin.
General admission is $35 and includes one souvenir wine glass and the opportunity to enjoy samplings from 20-plus restaurants and culinary businesses. Plumas Arts members pay a discounted presale admission of $30.
Restaurants need advance notice to prepare for this event so advance sale ticket purchase is very important, according to Plumas Arts. To encourage this all ticket prices go up to $40 after April 5— if the event is not sold out by then. Tickets are available at the Plumas Arts gallery at 372 Main St. in Quincy.
