Are you ready to get Wild for the Yuba? The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), the organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the Yuba River for the past 32 years, invites the community to get Wild for the Yuba at its annual auction and wine and beer tasting experience from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the historic North Star House.
The event features live music from Reno-based, seven piece horn driven soul-funk group, Mojo Green, who plays their own style of high energy dance music.
Wild for the Yuba is SYRCL’s biggest annual party for the river. As one of the area’s largest auctions there will be tempting items awaiting a bid! Items range from exotic vacations, local services, festival passes and more.
Sponsored by Rincon Del Rio with participating advertisers Sierra College and KVMR, the evening will also feature food from Smiley Guys Smoke House and Calla Lily Crepes. Attendees will get five beer or wine tastings per person from nine wineries and eight breweries all showcasing their finest libations. Desserts will be available as well.
“Wild for the Yuba is SYRCL’s way to kick-off the summer river season, and is a great way to support SYRCL’s work to protect and restore our watershed throughout the year,” said Executive Director Caleb Dardick. “We invite you all to join us as we celebrate our local treasure, the Yuba River, and contribute to the work SYRCL is doing to improve conditions on the Yuba through education, advocacy and restoration.”
Tickets are still available in advance at the SYRCL office, online at http://www.yubariver.org, or at the BriarPatch Co-Op. Tickets may also be purchased at the door on the night of the event. Advance purchase prices are $25 per person for SYRCL members and $30 for the general public. At-the-door pricing is $30 per person for SYRCL members and $35 for the general public.
