The 2019 Foothill Conservancy Annual Dinner on Saturday, May 18, will honor Conservancy director and community leader Susan Bragstad. The event will begin at 4:00 p.m. at Karmère Vineyards & Winery, 11970 Shenandoah Road, in the Shenandoah Valley east of Plymouth.
“We’re excited to be able to honor Susan Bragstad at our annual dinner,” said Foothill Conservancy President Katherine Evatt. “It’s time to recognize her for her many contributions to our community.”
Susan Bragstad is a founding member and director of the Conservancy and Kennedy Mine Foundation, the Mother Lode (formerly Amador) Land Trust, Farms of Amador and the Amador Farmers Markets. She earned an art degree from Trinity University and a bachelor of architecture degree from U.C. Berkeley. In the course of her architecture career, she helped design Ghirardelli Square, saved many historic Victorian homes in San Francisco, and won four Sunset Western Home Awards. After retiring from architecture, Susan founded Amador Olive Oil, Amador County’s first modern olive oil producer, which she continues to operate today.
Susan moved to Amador County in 1983 and quickly became engaged in our community. She is the vice-mayor of Amador City and previously served four years as mayor.
The dinner will feature delicious meat and vegetarian offerings from Taste Restaurant and Wine Bar, no-host craft beer and fine Karmère wines, live music from Amador’s own Wicked Sisters Band, a fabulous raffle, and live and silent auctions with special prizes including mountain resort and cabin lodging, rafting trips, meals, wine, and more.
Tickets are $65. They are available from the Conservancy office in Jackson (please call first) or online at Brown Paper Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.
