Foothills Celebration a great success

Thank you to the participants of the Foothills Celebration who enjoyed the mild weather and the hospitality of Grass Valley merchants on March 1. The seventh annual Celebration, presented by Music in the Mountains, the Grass Valley Downtown Association, and the Northern Sierra Wine County Association, provided the opportunity for locals and guests to visit downtown shops, taste our Sierra Foothills wines and sample food from Nevada County restaurants.

Nearly a hundred Allegro Alliance volunteers coordinated the event and assisted our guests. More than a dozen folks will also enjoy raffle prizes donated by the Gold Miners’ Holiday Inn Express, the New Moon and South Pine Cafés, the Stonehouse and India Oven Restaurants, Dedrick’s Cheese and Tess’s Kitchen Stores, Music in the Mountains, Nor-Cal Beverage, Wanda Mertens of Farmers Insurance Services plus the Renaissance and Nevada City wineries. The winner of the grand prize was Mardane Wyze of North San Juan.

A special “thank you” to the many volunteers who made Saturday’s event a great success.

Al Schafer, Raffle Coordinator
