Celtic music, readings and appetizers will be featured at the second annual Artists and Authors Garden Party benefit Sunday in Grass Valley for the Senior Citizens Foundation of Western Nevada County.

Doc Dachtler, Larry IIg and Donna Hanelin will read from their works. Kindred Spirit, Lisa Stine, Maggie McKaig and Shawn Haussler will play Celtic and original music. John Deaderick will emcee. All have donated their time.

Kirby’s Creekside, New Moon Cafe, Maria’s, Paulette’s Country Kitchen, Hans’ Pastry Shoppe and PJ’s of Nevada County will donate appetizers and desserts. Foothill Flowers will provide decorations.

Area artists will display their works at a silent auction.

Proceeds benefit four programs under the Senior Citizens Foundation: the Lutz Center-Adult Day Services, High Noon Senior Nutrition (Meals on Wheels), Grass Valley Senior Center and North Gold Senior Mountaineers in North San Juan.

“We raised $5,000 last year and hope to double it at this year’s garden party,” said Bette Worth, executive director of the Senior Citizens Foundation

Admission is $25 for the noon benefit and includes appetizers, desserts and wine-tasting in the garden of a Grass Valley home. Tickets must be purchased by 4 p.m. Friday.

Call the Senior Center at 273-4961 or the Lutz Center at 273-6581 for more information or tickets, which are also at Kathy’s Hallmark and The Book Seller.
