Copperopolis Town Square to Host Inaugural ‘Taste of the Holidays' Celebration
Wine, Holiday Extravaganza to Benefit Copperopolis Food Pantry
(COPPEROPOLIS, Calif.) - Copperopolis Town Square - located at the gateway to Calaveras County on Highway 4 - will host the inaugural "Taste of the Holidays" celebration Saturday, November 10 from 1 - 4 p.m.
Providing a jump-start to the holiday season, the extravaganza will include live music by Leroy and Jana, a secret auction and door prizes. Fourteen local vineyards will be on-site to pair wines with special fare including festive dishes and desserts. In addition, participating stores will display decorations and gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season.
Tickets for adults are $15 (advance) and $20 (at the door) benefitting the Copperopolis Parks and Recreation, who will donate proceeds to the local Food Pantry to assist with holiday dinners. Contributions will also support the "community garden," a Parks and Rec project providing fresh produce to underprivileged families.
"During this special time of year, we invite our community to help those in need by attending our newest event while sampling the region's finest wines and cuisine," says Linda Stefanick, Vice President and Event Director for Castle & Cooke Calaveras, Inc. "We want to thank all those who are contributing to this special event and ask for you to patronize them during your holiday visit."
Also, two local artists, Selma Sattin and Pat Hopper, will host a "Grandmother's Room" during the event for children to make ornaments for a youth holiday tree in the Town Square.
Copperopolis Town Square is situated in the rolling foothills of the Central Sierra in Calaveras County, two hours from San Francisco and 1.5 hours from Sacramento. The area offers visitors a variety of amenities and activities. Lodging is available at the highly acclaimed Saddle Creek Resort, located four miles from the Town Square.
Calaveras and nearby Tuolumne counties are rich with wineries and home to some of the best Petit Syrah in the country. Visitors are quickly discovering the Town Square as the perfect stop when traveling through this unsung wine region.
