Vintage airplanes and a couple hundred people smitten by them converged in a vast and spotless hangar Friday evening for a gala that launched this weekend’s Wings Over Wine Country air show.

Cocktails and appetizers of wild salmon and bruschetta began this Mustang Round-Up, hosted by volunteers of the Pacific Coast Air Museum. The organization is celebrating its 25th year and attracting public interest in its quest to significantly upgrade its presence at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, where it occupies two simple buildings and keeps its historic aircraft on a dirt lot.

Friday’s fundraising party occupied the airport’s Vine Jet hangar. Through the social hour, guests enjoyed live music as they mingled, noshed and viewed the exhibited aircraft, auction items and a large-screen Powerpoint presentation on the history and ambitions of the Pacific Coast Air Museum.

As dinner wrapped up, the crowd turned its attention to a program that featured remarks by two local World War II combat veterans. There was an auction, then an appeal for donations to PCAM’s effort to construct a handsome structure ideal for air-and-space exhibits and events.

Following the dessert and thank-yous, everyone flew home. There was a major, two-day air show to prepare for.

‘BACK TO THE FUTURE’ BENEFIT http://www.celebratecommunity.org/community-stories/back-to-the-future-benefit/ http://www.celebratecommunity.org/community-stories/back-to-the-future-benefit/#comments Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:16:05 +0000 http://www.celebratecommunity.org/?p=1427 Brandon Cowen of Elsie Allen High School's Lobo Song choral group sings a solo during Chop's Teen Club's Back to the Future fundraising event, in Santa Rosa on Sept. 13, 2014.

It was as though Lena’s came back to life for one mirthful and inspiring evening.

Lena’s was the century-old Italian restaurant and special-occasion spot in downtown Santa Rosa that gave up the ghost in 1996. The Lena’s sign and the great wooden bar became elements of a new community jewel constructed there at Adams and Sixth streets — Chop’s Teen Club, a gift from the estate of Santa Rosa civic leader Charles “Chop” DeMeo.

Saturday night, the youth center’s main auditorium took on the look of a 1940s supper club for “Back to the Future … Come Back to Lena’s for the Future of our Teens.”

Guests of the benefit bash sipped donated wines and tasted appetizers prepared by the Chop’s Culinary Crew. The club’s Jam Band kept a lively beat as folks toured the spaces dedicated to technology, art, workforce readiness, culinary training, music and recording, and sports and fitness.

(See more photos)

At the bar that long graced Lena’s, bartenders on loan from the neighboring Stark’s Steakhouse — created within the historic walls of the beloved Michele’s restaurant — mixed classic cocktails.

Dinner in the retro-dressed gym was prepared by students in the culinary program at Maria Carrillo High, and diners were serenaded by Elsie Allen High choral students.

The evening concluded just as so many had at Lena’s, with post-dinner conviviality and dancing.

ART FOR LIFE http://www.celebratecommunity.org/community-stories/art-for-life/ http://www.celebratecommunity.org/community-stories/art-for-life/#comments Sun, 07 Sep 2014 18:24:35 +0000 http://www.celebratecommunity.org/?p=1424 Joan Moore, right, artist Koni Rae, Karen Greif and Nancy Klein look at a table of 1,180 stones that represent the number of lives lost to AIDS in Sonoma County since 1983, during Art for Life, an art auction benefiting Face to Face to help end HIV and AIDS in Sonoma County, at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts on Sept. 6, 2014.

So much art! And there was just enough time to examine it, swoon over it, connect with it, talk about it and bid for it at Art for Life, Saturday afternoon’s celebration of creative expression, food, wine and compassion at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts.

This was the 27th year of the lively art sale, a benefit for the Santa Rosa-based Face to Face and its mission to end AIDS/ HIV in Sonoma County. Art for Life is the major annual gala of an organization grateful to the enduring support of local artists, some of whom have contributed valuable pieces year after year.

Guests arrived at the Sebastopol center, the event’s new home, to find the great, central gallery quartered. On exhibit in each of the four sections was donated art from across the creative spectrum: paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, jewelry, glass, ceramics.

(See more photos)

There were about 175 pieces in all. And a bit more than three hours to peruse and choose among them. Each artwork came with the option to buy it outright, for 150 percent of the value established by the contributing artist.

Guests placed and checked on bids while socializing and savoring a rich, colorful palette of local wines and foods.

Santa Rosa’s appealing and pizza-aromatic Rosso Rosticceria & Eventi became something more Thursday.

For just that evening, the restaurant doubled as a pop-up art gallery, a momentary venue for the multimedia creations of artists who study and work at Becoming Independent.

The Santa Rosa-based agency, which helps people with disabilities to earn income and live as fully and independently as possible, hosted the “Eat for Art” show at the airy Dutton Avenue pizza cafe.

Several of the professional artists in the Becoming Independent program spoke with guests and answered questions about their paintings and drawings, jewelry, ceramics, cards, T-shirt art and other works.

All were for sale, with the artists and Becoming Independent sharing the proceeds.

(See more photos)

Guests perused the art, then lingered to enjoy a slice of Rosso pizza or two, and perhaps a salad and glass of wine.

People served by Becoming Independent must apply to the art program, which explores an individual’s creative drive and determination to do the work demanded of a professional artist. For inspiration and instruction, the artists visit galleries, among them the De Young in San Francisco.

A garden party, quite naturally, kicked off the Aug. 16 Harvest of the Heart gala for the Ceres Project, which allows young people to grow and prepare nurturing food for people being treated for serious medical conditions.

At the gardens behind O’Reilly Media in Sebastopol, supporters of Ceres strolled among the fall vegetables and sipped champagne or local wine or Ceres Smoothies, tasted the plentiful appetizers and perused the temptations of the silent auction.

From the garden it was a short walk to the O’Reilly lawn and the inviting dining area encircled by a wall of standing, wooden pallets.

The family-style meal was a healthful, colorful feast orchestrated by celebrated chefs John Ash and Barbara Hom and prepared by Ceres teens.

A program reminded the diners that the Ceres Project has provided nearly 300,000 meals to patients.

The food is intended to be so nutritious that it boosts the healing process by fortifying clients’ immune systems. The record $176,000 raised at the outdoor gala helps assure that Ceres will grow and cook for even more people at a time in their lives when they’re especially in need of wholesome, healing, comforting nutrition.

It felt, quite appropriately, like a celebration within an enormous wine barrel.

Santa Rosa’s historic DeTurk Round Barn served as an ideal venue for the 25th anniversary gala of the Sonoma County Wine Library.

As guests arrived the afternoon of Aug. 10, they were offered a glass of Korbel champagne and invited to stroll around both floors of the splendidly repurposed circular barn.

A summer breeze ventilated the landmark and helped also to circulate lively tunes of Heard These Cats, a versatile jazz band. Servers with Park Avenue Catering made certain there was no shortage of hearty, pleasing appetizers.

Plentiful also were silent auction temptations, local wines and opportunities for patrons and winemakers to speak at length.

(See more photos)

During a brief program, guests learned of the history and resources of the Sonoma County Wine Library from “Wine Guy” Tom Simoneau, current wine librarian Jon Haupt and Bo Simmons, the previous wine librarian and current manager of the Healdsburg Regional Library.

The Wine Library, created largely through the vision and effort of late wine writer and community activist Millie Howie, is located within the Healdsburg library.

One day, Afghan artisans sharing their works with the world may well recount that an event essential to their success was the dinner, auction and compelling program that happened Aug. 2 at the Stubbs Vineyard winery and home west of Petaluma.

Percy Stubbs, a Sonoma Academy graduate, student of Columbia University and son of winery owners Tom and Mary Stubbs, hosted the event with Savannah Turley. While at Sonoma Academy, they helped raise more than $120,000 for the Turquoise Mountain Foundation, an international effort that is revitalizing the Old City of Kabul’s historic arts and cultural center.

The project at Sonoma Academy helped to make possible the construction of a school and an arts institute in that section of Kabul, for years rendered a virtual wasteland by war and intimidation from the Taliban.

(See more photos)

Two special guests of the event at Stubbs Vineyard spoke of the rebirth of the arts district in the ancient city: Shoshana Stewart, who directs the Turquoise Mountain Foundation and works to develop international markets and museum exhibits for the woodworkers, jewelers, ceramists, painters, calligraphers and artisans it serves, and former Army lieutenant general and then ambassador to Afghanistan Karl Eikenberry, now at Stanford.

Percy Stubbs told guests their contributions will do something exciting in Kabul: Provide startup funds for art-institute graduates now ready to go into production.

A glass of chilled champagne. A sampling of gourmet finger foods.

A stroll, accompanied by live music, through the verdant grounds of a historic Sonoma Valley estate. A heartfelt expression of gratitude from a woman helped to right and shelter her life.

All were elements of An Afternoon Affair, a garden party at a dream house that will help Sonoma County women working toward the dream of getting their children and themselves into a home.

The July 27 benefit for The Living Room, the comprehensive day services program for homeless and at-risk women and children located at Santa Rosa’s Church of the Incarnation, took place on the wooded lawn of the Pythian House.

Built near what is now Oakmont in 1889 as a lodge of the fraternal Knights of Pythias, the home now is owned by Laura and John Benward, who greeted the guests and welcomed questions about the historic property.

(See more photos from the event)

The leisurely mingling and tasting paused for a program featuring remarks on the essential work of The Living Room by Rep. Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena, Sonoma County Supervisor Shirlee Zane and a woman who introduced herself as Penny and offered thanks for the assistance that recently helped her to get into a safe and secure home.

Sensible shoes and traditional, luncheon- with-the-ladies demeanor were about as rare as plaid flamingos Saturday at the party at Chalk Hill winery that freed about 400 women to kick up their heels while contributing richly to a healthier community.

This was Wine, Women & Shoes, a sassy and splashy and playful midday frolic that helps to sustain Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County. Specifically, the dollars raised will benefit the Healdsburg District Hospital, community health and dental clinics, school health programs and a healthful lecture series. Many women arrived in their most bodacious shoes. To start things off, they perused an alluring marketplace.

(See more photos)

They mingled and tasted wines donated by 16 wineries and complemented by gourmet bites by culinary masters from Catelli’s, Mateo’s Cocina Latina, Dry Creek Kitchen, Agave, Spinster Sisters and Bellwether Farms.

And there was shopping at the marketplace’s accessories shops, and posing in the photo booth.

Everyone moved to the tables arranged near a stage for the luncheon, prepared by Catelli’s and young people receiving training in WOW, the Worth Our Weight culinary apprentice program.

The north county region’s versatile advocate on the Board of Supervisors, Mike McGuire, took the stage as auctioneer/ comic. He supercharged the bidding by noting that Pete and Terri Kight of Quivira Vineyards would match every dollar bid, up to $100,000.

(Alvin Jornada / For The Press Democrat)

It’s not good to see firefighters toil in proximity to high heat. Unless they’re cooking!

Such was the case Saturday evening at Alexander Valley’s Clos du Bois Winery, scene of a special, collaborative benefit dinner-dance called Wine Country to the Rescue.

The hardy, caring souls who operate the Geyserville, Cloverdale and Healdsburg fire companies hosted the gathering to raise money to purchase an essential piece of equipment that the three departments will share. It’s a $75,000 air compressor rig for refilling firefighters’ air packs at the scene of a blaze.

(See more photos)

As guests arrived at Clos du Bois on Saturday afternoon, they drank in the enchanting view, chose among the myriad silentauction treasures on display in a tent and pondered which of about 50 premium local wines they’d like in their glass.

The partnering firefighters prepared and served dinner out in the open air. Then the guests of Wine Country to the Rescue welcomed onto the stage county Supervisor Mike McGuire, who displayed his considerable talents as an auctioneer.

With the bidding finished and the dishes cleared, the half-California, half-Tennessee band Whiskey Dawn struck the first chords of music that drew folks to the dance floor like north county firefighters to a menacing flame.
