Moonlight Magic and Rat Pack raise money for Penn Valley Community Foundation

Are you ready for a little moonlight magic?

On Friday evening, Sept. 10, Pilot Peak Winery will be the site for a memorable event benefiting the Penn Valley Community Foundation and the future Penn Valley Community Center.

This is the first major fundraising effort to expose the community to plans for a 10,000 to 12,000 square foot community center on close to five acres in “downtown” Penn Valley – across from the Penn Valley Fire Station on Spenceville Road. To raise awareness about this venture, they are planning a truly fabulous evening that you won’t want to miss.

The Penn Valley Community Foundation was formed about ten years ago for the sole purpose of building a community center.

Currently, there is no indoor venue large enough to hold community events for an area with over 12,000 residents.

The first phase of mitigation, permitting and entitlements (federal, state, and county requirements), tearing down old, existing buildings and clearing the lot is complete. It is now time to get the greater community involved and to start fundraising.

For only $40 per person (must be over 21 years of age, ID required), the evening features a lavish Italian dinner catered by At Your Service.

There will be a silent and live auction including week-long vacation packages, a golf vacation in Mendocino, tickets to Disneyland and an after dinner show and dancing.

If you close your eyes, you will think that Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack are crooning the night away as you are entertained by the ever popular Dean-o-Holics, winners of the National Rising Star Award for best Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin tribute band.

Complete the evening with great wine and Sangria (no-host bar), a Tuscany-style ambiance and moonlight.

Seats are limited so purchase tickets. This will be a truly memorable evening of fun, food, and entertainment.
