Thank you to the over 100 supporters of SARSAS (Save Auburn Ravine Salmon and Steelhead Inc.) who came out for a SARSAS benefit wine tasting. We were able to raise $1000.00 to help achieve our goal of returning Salmon and Steelhead to the entire reach of the Auburn Ravine. You can find out more about SARSAS at www.sarsas.org Thank you also to Linda Lareau, owner of Courthouse Coffee in Auburn for hosting this wine tasting, to Redwood Creek winery for donating 2 cases of wine and a BBQ for our raffle, to Nelva Richardson of www.paintingwithwine.com for donating two beautiful prints of Salmon which she painted using the Redwood Creek wine, and thank you to musicians Murray Donaldson, Rick Tolle and Ms. M. Fred Knox for their wonderful songs and tunes that put everyone in a festive mood. Thanks also to all the SARSAS volunteers who made the event possible. Our next wine tasting is April 17 at Courthouse Coffee again, 1425 Lincoln Way in Auburn from 6-8 pm. Gary and Barbara Mandolfo of Meadow Vista will provide their wine, musician Stephen Holland will provide entertainment and our raffle prizes include a wonderful metal sculpture of salmon donated by Dan of www.wizardsofmetal.com in Old Town Auburn. Print and electronic media outlets all help us get the word out about our project and about our fundraising events. SARSAS thanks them for helping. Together we can achieve the worthy goal of establishing strong salmon and steelhead runs in Auburn Ravine. Scott Johnson Auburn
