Calistoga, CA (PRWEB) August 02, 2016
Sharpsteen Museum's 28th Instant Wine Cellar fundraiser is quickly approaching. The always-popular wine cellar drawing and raffle baskets will be enhanced this year by a silent auction and a small live auction featuring a design-your-own Pebble Beach getaway and a progressive dinner prepared by local chefs and served in historic Calistoga residences, all within an easy walk.
This year's fundraiser runs from 4-7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27 at the Museum Plaza.
The Museum is taking pre-bids for both live auction items to accommodate those who cannot attend the event. Instructions are easy (see flyer insert). Simply go to http://sharspteenmuseum.org and use the Contact Page to send any bids. Be sure to include a telephone number for contact purposes.
The Pebble Beach Getaway is valued at $5,000 and can be used for lodging, restaurants, shops, spas as well as golf. (There are five courses at the resort.) The minimum bid to open is $3,500. When sending a pre-bid, be sure to note the minimum and maximum bid.
The Progressive Dinner is open for up to a group of eight people. Minimum bid is $800 ($100.00 x 8). Please advise minimum and maximum bid.
Pre-bids will be accepted up until 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 26. All bidders will be kept informed as to the status of their bid as bidding progresses.
On the day of the event, five Calistoga AVA wineries will be on hand to pour their finest selections, accompanied by delicious appetizers. Admission to the event is $20 per person, $5 for Sharpsteen members (be sure to renew a membership now if it hasn't been done already). All attendees must be 21 or older.
The Instant Wine Cellar is Sharpsteen Museum's only fundraiser this year. Any and all generosity is not only appreciated but very much needed. The Museum's staff thanks all members and museum-goers for the constant support of the Sharpsteen Museum.
Sharpsteen Museum also sends out a thank-you to the enthusiastic volunteers who have already come forward to help make the IWC a success. Help is still needed with raffle ticket advance sales; basket assembly; food preparation and event set-up and take-down. The Fundraiser is also in need of 10’ X 10’ canopies. If able help out in any capacity, please contact Chairs Pat and Dave Larsen at 707-341-3313 or dirofdev48(at)gmail.com.
