The Instant Wine Cellar is the Sharpsteen Museum’s major fund-raiser. This year’s event features wine tasting hosted by Calistoga WineGrowers; delicious appetizers from Chef Rick Warkel and the Museum’s own hospitality volunteers; live and silent auctions; the always-popular baskets of merchandise, gift certificates and wine donated by local businesses and friends of the Museum; and culminates in the Grand Raffle Prize drawing, where each of two winners receives 5 mixed cases of premium wines from Napa Valley producers. Both event admission and Grand Raffle Prize tickets are for sale now at the Museum, or visit the Museum’s website at www.sharpsteenmuseum.org to download a ticket order form. Grand Raffle Prize tickets are $10 each, or 5 for $40. Need not be present at the August 24 event to win. Admission tickets for the August 24 event are $10 for Museum members and $25 for non-members or guests. Both admission and Grand Raffle tickets will be available at the door on August 24.
