East Bay Real Estate: 21st Annual Blackhawk Food, Wine & Film Festival!

For the past 21 years our Danville/Sycamore Rotary Club has presented the best party of the year in the East Bay – The Blackhawk Food, Wine & Film Festival.  Well over $500,000 have been raised and re-invested back into the needs of our communities over the past 21 years.  The event is May 5th starting at 5:30pm and the location is at the Blackhawk Auto Museum with the Livermore Valley Wine Growers wineries, ( Bodegas Aguirre Winery one of my favorites.),  and the world class restaurants of our Valley, with The Peasant & The Pear and Piatti’s as just two of the many restaurants you will love.  The wineries and restaurants will be your host before the big screen movie, Casablanca, is previewed.  There are also amazing auction items for the limited guest list of 600.  The event is always a sellout, so if you would like to make a tax deductible donation of $40 to the DSV Rotary Club Foundation a pass will be waiting for you at the door.  If for some reason you are not able to join us your tax deductible donation will be put to good use.  MAIL IT TODAY! Jim Walberg, 760 Camino Ramon, Suite 200,  Danville, CA  94526.  I hope to see you there!
