Mountain Area Preservation Foundation

to celebrate the 3rd Annual Sierra Forage Dinner

Tickets are on sale now for the Mountain Area Preservation Foundation’s (MAPF) annual fundraiser, the Sierra Forage Dinner Friday, Aug. 19, 5 p.m., Stella Restaurant in the Cedar House Sport Hotel, Truckee. The Sierra Forage Dinner highlights seasonal and regional cuisine, features local musical talent and provides a perfect way to bring longtime supporters and new friends together in an intimate, local setting.

The purpose of this once a year, elegant affair is to celebrate the many accomplishments of MAPF and raise money to sustain the organization’s efforts to protect open space and preserve the mountain character of the region. For example, MAPF and their partners have helped to protect Waddle Ranch, Negro Canyon, and most recently another 122 acres in the Martis Valley.

Highlights of this year’s Sierra Forage Dinner include wine pairings with a regional and seasonal menu created by Chef Jacob Burton and live music by Truckee favorites Dave Fenimore and Michael Hogan. There will also be silent and live auctions.

Tickets are $100 per person. Space is limited, sign up early at http://www.mapf.org or call 530-582-6751.
