Mendocino Wine Raffle

Our theme this year is "Gotcha Covered". We're raising money to re-roof the Mae Lauer display house and the propagation house. We have a very generous anonymous donor who will be matching our ticket sales up to $10,000! Tickets will go on sale starting in early May and continuing until October 2nd when we'll have the  drawing for the winners at our monthly FOG meeting. All the wine for this event is donated by our many award-winning Mendocino County Wineries. Cheers to them and MANY thanks!

Friends of the Gardens provides a delicious breakfast for all the artists and volunteers.  Homemade breakfast casseroles, muffins, etc are delivered to the Farmhouse the morning of the event and taken to the Event Lawn where this long-standing treat for artists and volunteers is eagerly awaited.
