Bravissimo is a word used when describing something or someone splendid or excellent. It is also a great word for the annual fundraiser for The Healdsburg School. Last year the event was presented at Dutcher Crossing Winery. Guests listened to live music, enjoyed wine & food, and bid on raffles and silent & live auctions
for a chance to cook with Chef Douglas Keane of Cyrus Restaurant, a week's stay at an Italian Villa, and more.
This year the festivities continue at Paradise Ridge Winery on Friday, April 16, 2010. Auction items include a 100 Bottle Instant Cellar, a Picnic for Eight at the Hog Island Oyster Company hosted by Chef/Restaurateur Ralph Tingle, a Blending Party for Ten at Artiste Winery and Tasting Studio, a week's stay in Hawaii, and many more fantastic items!
The evening would not be complete without delicious food and wine. A three-course meal prepared by Bruce Riezenmen, Owner and Executive Chef of Park Avenue Catering will be paired with local wines from wineries such as Murphy Goode Winery, Chateau Souverain, Robert Mondavi, Kendall Jackson Wine Estates, and De La Montanya Winery.
