More than a dozen prominent local artists will display and sell their works Sunday, May 6, in Suisun Valley. The collaborative effort, hosted by the Ledgewood Creek Winery, will support Child Haven of Solano County.
Jane Johnson, Child Haven’s Executive Director said, “There is so much competition for funding today and the need continues to grow. We are struggling to help all of the abused and neglected children who need our services. We are hoping to raise at least $10,000 at this event, every little bit helps.”
Child Haven’s Art and Wine Event will feature 15 local artists who are donating 30% of the day’s proceeds to Child Haven. Artists include: Jewelry makers Laura Susskind, Linda Bodie, and Monica Majors; Photographers Bill Lake, Carol Marshall, and Susan Layman; Painters Donna Covey, Elizabeth Bravo, Lynne Wagner, Betty Jo March, and Joan Landis; Sculptor Elinor Herford; Ceramist Bill Bloom; and Artisan fashion accessory makers Marilyn Wilson (fabrics and scarves) and Ruth Corda (beaded purses).
While experiencing world class art, attendees will enjoy award winning Ledgewood Creek wine, exceptional food by Joan Cruise's "Flavors Catering” and delectable desserts by “Just Cakin’ it” of Vacaville.
“This is really a fantastic event. People who attend almost always come back. We have amazing gourmet food, award winning Ledgewood Creek wine and beautiful local art – it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon!” Johnson said.
