Hey ladies,

Make your first night of summer one to remember by participating in the 6th Annual San Diego Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate festival for the Women's Museum of California. Tickets go on sale May 1st - previous years always sold out!

We WMC women are very excited as the festival is going to be bigger and better than ever. We are producing it on the beautiful grassy lawn and promenade of our new location at NTC Liberty station (yeah, next to Stone Brewery ;)). More vendors - more goodies - more tastings - and no worries: Sue Palmer will be performing live and there will still be room for dancing :)

The popular festival is the museum's one big annual fundraiser: supporting us will allow us to continue our mission to serve local San Diego communities and all monies made are directly allocated towards cultural and educational programming. In addition, funds help us host many women owned, run/and women focused organizations at a deeply discounted rate year round and promote contemporary art and underserved communities (we had a portrait in our juried art show of Innocente, the girl who's becoming a bit famous since the documentary about her life won an oscar last month). We're doing our best to help closing the gender gap by exhibiting local female artists in our gallery.

There will be delish CA wines and lots of cheese and chocolate creations. We will even feature private chefs who are going to ensure that you'll have a grand time! In addition, we have many great silent auction items to bid on: from balloon rides and round of golf or spa-packages to make-over photo shoots to all-in Paper Source card making classes for six people and in-home personal chef dinners...

In a few days you can buy tickets online: Individuals are $35; groups 10 and over are 25 dollars a pop. VIP with seating with tables are $50 a person - which will also buy you additional wine and other perks.

Just wanted to give you heads up - whether you've been a museum or event guest in the past or it's going to be your first time: it would be just splendid if you and your loved-ones (and friends) would be able to join us on our NTC Liberty Station Festival lawn! Previous years always sold out and tickets will go on sale Wednesday MAY 1 at midnight - page link will become available on the Web site evening of April 30th.
