COBB, Calif. – The beautiful pine grove at the Moore Family Winery will be the setting for a wine tasting to raise funds for the Children's Museum of Art and Science (CMAS) on Saturday, April 21 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Music will be provided by Saro and Reikor Deacon's group, “From the Heart.”

Delicious hors d'oeuvres will be created and served by the students of the Yuba College Culinary Arts Program.

A variety of prizes from generous community members and businesses will be part of a raffle.

The Moore Family Winery has also donated a “concert package” as the grand door prize.

Tickets are only $15. and are available at The Travel Center in Lakeport, Marie's Feed in Clearlake, and Mt. High Coffee in Hidden Valley and Cobb. You also can obtain tickets by calling 707-994-2878.

CMAS will use the proceeds from this event to support its annual art and science camp and its fledgling robotics program.

In the last five years over 600 fourth through sixth graders from throughout the county have participated in the science camps.

This year's camp will take place on Saturday, May 12, at the Ely Stage Stop and the Taylor Observatory.

The camp is a collaborative effort with the Lake County Office of Education, the Lake County Historical Society and the Redbud Audubon Society.

CMAS also partnered this year with the Konocti Unified School District to develop a pilot robotics program at Lower Lake Elementary, and purchased Lego robot kits and student laptops which are available for classes to use.
