California Wildfires Fundraiser @ Bradley Photographic Gallery
Dec 2 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

 

31 people (so far) have lost their lives in the California wild fires (29 attributed to the Camp Fire), and these fires stand to surpass the record for the deadliest fires on record in CA.

In an effort to raise money to help those affected by the fires (those that have lost homes, pets and loved ones), we will be hosting a fundraiser to support the American Red Cross Gold Country Region and the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region.

We will be taking Christmas or family photos at Bradley Photographic Gallery in Pacific Grove on December 2, 2018, from 10:00am to 3:00pm, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross to help those affected by fires. YOU get to decide how much to pay for your photos ($50 minimum donation suggested). In return, you will receive your photos emailed to you.

We will have LIVE music (Check out the amazing Razzvio!), yummy snacks/drinks, and you also get to peruse Jason Bradley’s incredible gallery while you are there.

It’s a WIN/WIN – you get Christmas/family photos and people that are suffering from the devastation of these fires get help! Please consider coming by on December 2nd!

Monterey Bay Tequila & Cuisine 2019 @ Monterey Conference Center
Oct 19 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

The MBTC is the premiere agave event on the West Coast! Nesteled on the beautiful Monterey peninsula of the Central Coast in California. This area features unmatched natural beauty and is an iconic setting for the MBTC. Monterey County is known as the “salad bowl of the world,” and we are so proud to partner with local renowned chefs to bring you scrumptious cuisine that pairs perfectly with Mexico’s emblematic spirits.

The MBTCs non-profit of choice is Rancho Cielo – the students of the drummond culinary academy will be with us in October and together we will raise funds for Rancho Cielo’s programs that provide options and opportunities to youth that have barriers to success that are not always of their own making. Rancho Cielo is a testament that this community cares about ALL of our youth.

So, be sure to join us for a first-class agave experience on Saturday, October 19, 2019. You’ll be glad you did!
