Foothill Conservancy Annual Dinner

The 2019 Foothill Conservancy Annual Dinner is set for Saturday, May 18 and this year will honor Conservancy director and community leader Susan Bragstad of Amador City. Bragstad is a founding member of the Conservancy and Kennedy Mine Foundation, the Mother Lode (formerly Amador) Land Trust, Farms of Amador and the Amador Farmers Markets.  After retiring from a successful architectural career in the bay area, she moved to Amador County in 1983 and quickly became engaged in the community.  She also founded the Amador Olive Oil company, Amador County’s first modern olive oil producer, which she continues to operate today.  Susan is the vice-mayor of Amador City and previously served four years as mayor. The dinner will begin at 4:00 p.m. at Karmère Vineyards & Winery in the Shenandoah Valley, and will feature delicious meat and vegetarian offerings from Taste Restaurant and Wine Bar, no-host Karmère wines, live music from Wicked Sisters, a fabulous raffle, and live and silent auctions.   Tickets are $65 and are available from the Conservancy office in Jackson or online at Brown Paper Tickets. For more information, contact Carolyn at 223-3508.
