Art Auction benefits college students

The El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce Education Council will host the annual Wine Tasting/Art Auction at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 4, at David Girard Vineyard.

Ten Thomas Kinkade framed prints, along with artwork from other area artists, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Many artists who have participated in the past will be participating again. There will be door prizes donated by local businesses and individuals.

This is a great opportunity to not only raise money for the Al Aguiar Memorial Scholarship to support the continuing education of El Dorado County residents, but the Wine Tasting/Art Auction also gives excellent exposure to local El Dorado County artists.

The proceeds will be used for the Al Aguiar Memorial Scholarship and the Folsom Lake College, El Dorado Center Scholarships.

The Al Aguiar Memorial Scholarship enables employers in El Dorado County to assist their employees to increase their education and knowledge by allowing the employee to be trained while working, thus benefiting the employer as well.

The Folsom Lake College, El Dorado Center Scholarships are for re-entry students and first-time students.

Tickets for this event are $10 and available at the following sponsoring locations: El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce, El Dorado County Office of Education, Folsom Lake College-El Dorado Center, Shingle Springs-Cameron Park Chamber of Commerce, David Girard Vineyards, Brandman University, and El Dorado Arts Council.

You may call the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce at (530) 621-5885 or the El Dorado County Office of Education at (530) 295-2337 for more information on the Al Aguiar Memorial Scholarship or the Wine Tasting/Art Auction.
