2009 Holiday Benefit Concert and Auction a Great Success

It was great! We had a full house, both bands were magnificent, the Cypress Grove cheeses and several local wines were sublime, and we even made a few bucks. A real success overall. Click this link and the following one to read our original postings for the event.

[here’s what we posted prior to the event]

During Siskiyou Land Conservancy’s Dec. 4 benefit concert with David Jacobs-Strain and Joanne Rand (see previous post), we will offer a small silent auction. Below are some of the items to choose from. As always, we greatly appreciate the donations, and we encourage you to shop with these merchants. 

In addition, we owe thanks to the following local businesses that have provided food and drink for the evening:

  • Wines: Cabot, Coates, Elk Prairie, Moonstone, Violet Green.
  • Six Rivers Brewery
  • Cypress Grove Chevre
  • North Coast Co-Op

Also, keep in mind that this concert is a double CD release celebration. We kept the cost of admission low as encouragement to buy the new CDs from David Jacobs-Strain and Joanne Rand.
