Mark your calendars: The 31st Solano Wine & Food Jubilee returns to Harbison Event Center at the Nut Tree in Vacaville, at 6:30 p.m. on May 19, 2018. “We’re very excited that the Jubilee will again be held at the Nut Tree,” said Craig Bryan, Jubilee committee chair and NorthBay Healthcare Foundation board member. The Jubilee will offer ticketholders a “wine country casual” experience strolling about the Harbison Event Center grounds sampling some of the area’s best food and award-winning wines and beers while enjoying musical entertainment.
The popular Silent Auction returns as well, where ticketholders peruse and then bid on an array of items from exotic vacations to wine country experiences and sports memorabilia. When the tasting portion of the evening concludes at around 9 p.m., ticketholders move over to the Nut Tree Pavilion area to enjoy rides on the Nut Tree train and carousel and dancing to one of the area’s most popular bands, The Time Bandits.
Before dancers take the floor, the top prize in the Jubilee Raffle will be announced. The prize has been expanded to include five brand-new cars offered by Rami Yanni of the Wise Auto Group. The winner can choose between a 2018 Nissan Altima, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, Buick Verano or Mazda3 Hatchback, with a MSRP of $30,000. Cash prizes totaling $10,000 will be announced. Presenting Sponsors are Al and Patt Shaw, Lee and Valerie Freeman, Heidi Y. Campini, Dennis and Alex Landis, the Wise Auto Group, Western Health Advantage, DPR Construction and Paradise Valley Estates.
