“Party at the Ranch,” a dinner Sunday at the Rominger family ranch north of Winters, features music and art as a fundraiser for the West Yolo Democratic Club. The event runs from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at 28681 County Road 29.
The Dick Livingston Jazz Duo — featuring Dick on keyboards and his son Rich on drums — will perform a variety of jazz tunes. While they bop to the beat, guests are invited to explore a silent art auction. No ordinary art auction, this one offers an array of art and artful artifacts. One surprise artifact, donated by Marion Hamilton of Winters, is a roll-top desk, solid oak, circa 1875-1900, with original finish and in perfect condition.
Add to that a “Chicken Art” sculpture by Donna Billick along with many paintings, framed photographs and services, this is a don’t-miss auction.
“Party at the Ranch” includes Mexican food catered by El Pueblo restaurant of Winters and wine from Rominger West Winery. Former Congressman Pete McCloskey will speak. He’ll be introduced by Rich Rominger, former deputy secretary of agriculture under President Clinton. Also, California Gov. Jerry Brown and his wife are expected to attend.
Tickets for “Party at the Ranch” are $25, which includes the party, dinner and one free drink. They are available at Steady Eddy’s Coffee House, 5 E. Main St. in Winters, or may be reserved by contacting Jean Crossley at [email protected]
