Wine & Brew Fest to Benefit Shingletown Med Center

Shingletown Medical Center will host the 6th Annual Harvest Wine & Brew Fest at the beautiful UpCountry Gardens in Shingletown on Saturday, August 27th, from 2 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. This fundraiser will help raise money for their 2011 Annual Fund Campaign.

Rick Sweringen, the hilarious Steve Martin impersonator, will be the announcer at the event, and live entertainment will be provided by singer, songwriter and guitarist Chris Lauer. In addition to the annual silent auction, George Ireton, a well-known local auctioneer, will conduct the always-exciting live auction.

Guests will have the opportunity to bid on items such as; a one day pass for a family of four for both Disneyland & Disney California Adventure Park, casino hotel certificates from Lake Tahoe, Reno and Las Vegas, as well as other fun destinations. There will also be art pieces, wine baskets, gift certificates and other fabulous items for your bidding pleasure.

The event will have a bountiful variety of fine wines from Silverado Vineyards, Alpen Cellars, Shasta Daisy, Indian Peak, Mt. Tehama, Cedar Crest, Lassen Peak, Ringtail and other fine vineyards, as well as a tasty variety of microbrews from Foothill Distributing.

To add to the excitement, there will be tasting booths from the following vendors; Bell Carter Olives, Shamrock Artisan Goat Cheese and special treats from ChocolatDuck. C&C Catering will be creating mouthwatering appetizers on the scrumptious bread supplied by From the Hearth Bakery, and Dill’s Deli will pull up the famous Dill’s Grill for smoked delectable BBQ treats.

Shingletown is a rural community and our nonprofit medical center treats many low-income and uninsured patients and families. With this year’s government cut-backs and the escalating cost of health care, Shingletown Medical Center needs the community’s support now more than ever.

Tickets are $20 for advance purchase or $25 at the event, and can be purchased by visiting or calling the Shingletown Medical Center @ (530) 474-3390.
