It was a great event — watch for it next year!
Kick up your heels Saturday, Sept. 17 at the ArtsHarvest dinner dance party at the historic, newly-redone Avery Hotel, with the band Mumbo Gumbo! Gourmet lasagne, side veggies and salad, bread, dessert, no-host libations such as a signature harvest drink, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages, such as sponsor Coops Coffee products, will be served. There will be a silent auction of art, local services and gift certificates, an Oars rafting package, Tahoe getaway cabin vacation stay, specialty items, and many more items. Manzanita Writers Press staff are offering as one of the prizes an all-expense-paid specialty gourmet dining experience for four, with writers and editors as your host.
Tickets for ArtHarvest: $45 per person. Go to Manzanita Writers Press website to get your tickets. We expect a sell-out crowd, so reserve early. Manzanita Writers Press will be celebrating our new non-profit status. Proceeds will benefit planned events for the community, provide funding to run the gallery and facility of Manzanita Arts Emporium, and provide assistance toward the publication project such as our Butte Fire inspired anthology series and blog, Out of the Fire, a healing project collecting stories, poetry, photography and art celebrating the beauty of our region, with a section on stories based on the Butte Fire disaster.
Sponsors: Avery Hotel, Coops Coffee, Calaveras Chronicle, Manzanita Writers Press, Manzanita Arts Emporium artists, and more.
