Calabash - A Celebration of Gourds, Art and the Garden
Sunday, October 5, 2014
Food For Thought, in collaboration with the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, present the 14th annual Calabash - Sonoma County’s most colorful and inspiring harvest event. Calabash, named Best Fundraiser by readers of the North Bay Bohemian in 2013 and 2014, features a silent auction of fine gourd art, along with tours of Food For Thought’s beautiful organic gardens, which will be at their peak.
Guests at Calabash enjoy a sumptuous array of fine food and wine from Sonoma County’s bountiful harvest, and live music played on hand-made gourd instruments. The event will also feature a sale of select garden art and an exclusive selection from Food For Thought Antiques.
Tickets are $45 before the event or $50 day-of-event. Please call (707) 887-1647 for tickets or click here to purchase tickets online (make sure to put “Calabash tickets” in the comment field).
Monies raised at Calabash will benefit Food For Thought – Sonoma County AIDS Food Bank, which provides comprehensive nutrition and other services – free of charge – to 700 men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS in Sonoma County.
