Our partners at The Friends of the Clarksburg Library (FOCL) are working hard behind the scenes getting ready for their Annual Wines of Clarksburg and Art Auction fundraiser on Sunday, September 17th. This will be the 33rd event to be held, with all proceeds benefiting our incredible Clarksburg Community Library (the only community-owned public library in California).
The library serves not only the Clarksburg community but also functions as the main library for Delta Elementary Charter School, Clarksburg Middle School, and Delta High School. The library hosts and supports community activities, including youth and adult classes, events, and many local non-profit organization meetings.
Wines of Clarksburg offers an elegant afternoon in the beautiful garden of Heringer Estates featuring gourmet food samplings (from our local Acoustic Events), wine tastings from our local wineries, live music from Midtown Jazz, gift basket auction, and a fine art auction featuring Sacramento and Delta artists. Past auctions have included the artwork of Gregory Kondos, Roger Berry, Eric Dahlin, Miles Hermann, Patris, and Bud Gordon.
