Helen and Cap Thomson of Davis have been named honorary chairmen of the 10th annual Blues Harvest, to benefit the Yolo Adult Day Health Center. The event will run from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, at the Heidrick Ag History Center, 1962 Hays Lane in Woodland.

Helen Thomson’s 36-year political career encompassed the Davis Board of Education, five terms on the Yolo County Board of Supervisors, and six years as a Democratic assemblywoman representing California’s 8th Assembly District. Many of bills she authored focused on mental health and health care.

After a psychiatric residency in Boston and a year teaching in Scotland, Cap Thomson moved to Davis with Helen in 1965 to help start the Yolo County community mental health program.  Retiring after 27 years, Cap has continued to delight locals with his banjo as part of the Putah Creek Crawdads, with whom he has played folk, Americana, gospel and bluegrass for more than 40 years.

Blues Harvest features local wines and appetizers, a silent auction and music by the Kyle Rowland Band with special guest Aron King. Guests can bid on a vacation in Kauai, Hawaii; an opportunity to meet television talk show host Jay Leno; original works of art; and unusual gifts.

Tickets are $45, available at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in Davis, and at the door. For more information, call (530) 666-8828 or visit FriendsofAdultDayHealth.org.
