“An Autumn Nocturne” presented by the Music in the Mountains Alliance will offer guests a five-course gourmet dinner at the Sierra Starr Winery and Vineyards as part of a fundraiser for Music in the Mountains. Local chef Antonio Ayesteran has prepared a menu accompanied by delicious Sierra Starr wines and the music of Sols.
A live auction will culminate the evening, with items including triple-threat actor/singer/dancer Jed Dixon, who will donate an evening of entertainment at the location of the winner’s choice; brunch for eight in a private home; a bouquet-a-month from Foothill Flowers; a gourmet dinner for six donated by Antonio Ayesteran; a hand-crafted wooden bowl by local artist Bill Kinney; a week-long resort stay in Los Cabos and a private plane ride are among the remaining auction items that will go to the highest bidder. All proceeds from the auction benefit Music in the Mountains directly.
This benefit will be at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12, at the Sierra Starr Winery and Vineyard in Grass Valley. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased at the Music in the Mountains Box Office, 530 Searls Avenue in Nevada City, or by calling 530-265-6124.
