The Lake County Land Trust once again enjoyed a successful fundraising dinner at the Saw Shop Gallery Bistro in Kelseyville, thanks to owner, Marie Beery, and her wonderful staff. E
Eighty people enjoyed the delicious dinner on May 14, with proceeds going to help us operate our Rodman Preserve, continue working on our Big Valley Wetlands Project, and to further our other efforts in preserving the landscapes of beautiful Lake County.
The event raised almost $5,000 for the Land Trust.
The Lake County Land Trust is a charitable nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to preserving Lake County’s natural resources through education, partnerships, and land conservation. The trust owns and operates the Rodman Preserve near Upper Lake, owns the Rabbit Hill Park in Middletown and is currently working on several land conservation projects in Lake County.
The annual spring dinner at the Saw Shop in Kelseyville is one of two major fundraising events for the Land Trust.
Marie Beery, owner of the Saw Shop Gallery Bistro has been presenting this dinner for the Land Trust for many years and her generosity and hard work on this event are greatly appreciated.
Also very much appreciated are: the staff at the Saw Shop, this year’s sponsor, Dennis Darling of Foods Etc. of Clearlake; wine donors: Sol Rouge, Six Sigma, Mt. Konocti Growers, Moore Family Winery, Steele Wines, Ceago, Shed Horn, Langtry Estates and Vigilance; and musician David Neft who donated his excellent piano playing during the event’s social hour.
Thanks also to local media including Lake County News for publicizing our event.
Also, thank you to everyone who attended – your support is very important to us!
