Foothill Conservancy: Meet, Greet, Eat, and honor Katherine and Pete! Sat May 19

It’s time for the Foothill Conservancy’s annual fundraising dinner. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 19 at 4:00 p.m. at the Karmère Vineyards & Winery, 11970 Shenandoah Road, in Plymouth. 
The event will feature delicious meat and vegetarian offerings from Taste Restaurant and Wine Bar, no-host craft beer and fine Karmère wines, live music from Amador’s own Wicked Sisters band, and a fabulous raffle, live and silent auctions with special prizes including mountain resort and cabin lodging, meals, wine, and more. Tickets are $65.
This year’s dinner will honor long-time Foothill Conservancy President Katherine Evatt and Vice-President Pete Bell for their contributions to local and regional conservation. The Volcano-area residents are among the Conservancy’s founding members. Evatt is the past president of the Sierra Nevada Alliance and the 2015 recipient of Friends of the River’s Capitol River Award. Bell serves as a director of the Pacific Watershed and Forest Land Stewardship Council and is a past recipient of Friends of the River’s Peter H. Behr Award.
 “This should be a wonderful event,” said Foothill Conservancy Executive Director, Amanda Nelson. “We have really great items in the raffle and silent and live auctions, and honoring Katherine and Pete makes it all the more special.”
Tickets to the event are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets.
