AmadorArts: Support the Postponed Winefest - Online Auction Nov 7-28

In case you missed it, AmadorArts, due to COVID-19 issues, announced recently that it was postponing the annual Winefest until next year.  Instead, to replace and raise the much needed funds, they are launching a series of fun, virtual events including performances, culinary arts, online auctions, and more.

The Amador County Arts Council, a vital nonprofit for 38 years, is asking the community for help to make the online auction for three weeks in November one to remember. Businesses, wineries, artists, individuals, are encouraged to Donate an AUCTION ITEM today to help keep the Arts Central to Amador County Life! Whether it’s a Certificate, Wine, an Event or a Staycation for someone to enjoy, artwork, lessons, your support keeps The Arts FREE and VISIBLE throughout the schools and community.

Your “donation” will be photographed and properly acknowledged and your URL, if available, will be visible on the Online Auction platform. AmadorArts wants this to be win-win for everyone. Getting the word out about the Auction throughout the state will be a major priority.

Contact Carol Brown at to donate and/or ask questions. The online auction will be November 7-28, 2020. Be advised that delivery of auction items must be by October 8.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED : AmadorArts has lots of programs to serve the community, even during the pandemic and even during Shelter in Place. Volunteers make the council’s programs and services a success.

To keep the arts central to Amador, there are opportunities for community service in social media, web development, database, events, exhibits, fundraising, and lifelong arts learning—including visual, theatre, dance, music, and media arts ed for all ages. And, as the Online Auction replacing Winefest ramps up, many will be needed for a variety of tasks.
