Celebrate Life

Event to be held at Karmère Winery & Vineyards this Friday, September 17! 

The 22nd Annual Hospice of Amador & Calaveras “Celebrate Life” Art Auction is back, in person, at Karmère Winery & Vineyards — this coming Friday, September 17, 2021, and tickets are going fast! 

This year’s event promises every bit of the excitement that attendees have enjoyed for more than two decades: a live art auction conducted by auctioneer Frank Halvorson, live music by local favorite Manny Sosa, a raffle-style drawing for exciting prizes and experiences, and the ever-popular final event of the evening, “Last One Standing,” where attendees can stand up and donate any amount they choose! 

Community Relations Director Wendy Mathis said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be back in person. Last year’s virtual auction was fantastic, but there’s nothing like an evening under the stars at Karmère. We have some very special drawing prizes this year — more food experiences and an abundance of original works of art and handmade items by local artisans.” 

Among the all-star lineup of prizes are a 12-person, Food and Wine Immersion Experience with Rombauer Vineyards, Taste Restaurant and Wine Bar, Manny Sosa, hand-crafted furniture by local artisans, original works of art, adventures, and more! 

Tickets to this event are still available but selling out fast! To purchase, visit www.hospiceofamador.org or call 209-223-5500.
