Lights, Camera, Auction coming up

Enjoy an evening of food, wine and fun – all to benefit Kenwood Elementary School – on Saturday, May 18 from 5 to 10 p.m. at Ledson Winery and Vineyards, 7335 Sonoma Hwy. in Kenwood.

Every year the Kenwood Education Foundation, in support of Kenwood School, holds this community-building event to raise funds for crucial enrichment programs such as art, music, Spanish and technology.

This year, physical education, health and wellness has been designated for the live auction’s raise-your-paddle Fund-a-Need in recognition of the ongoing importance of regular physical activity during the school day, an elemental ingredient in the students’ overall ability to learn.

Among other biddable items are a one-week’s stay at Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club, a birthday party at the Kenwood Fire Station, a weekend package to the Ritz-Carlton at Half Moon Bay, a dinner in the caves at Kunde Family Estate, private tastings and tours at many wineries, certificates for restaurant meals and much, much more.

Peruse the auction catalog, purchase a $95 per person ticket or corral your friends and put together a table for 10 for $1,000, two bottles of wine and private bar service included. Tickets and information can be found at
