Orders must be placed by Oct. 2 for SCNA’s fall fundraiser, the Porch Picnic event scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10, from 4 to 7 p.m.
The fundraiser is totally virtual except for the food, which comes delivered to your house along with other treats – an art project, links to special entertainment to accompany your picnic, plus a one-year membership to SCNA. All this for $150.
Participating restaurants include Taylor’s Kitchen, Revolution Cafe, Paragary’s, Urban Roots, Pangaea, Vallejo’s, Hop Gardens and Sampino’s.
Some restaurants offer meat and vegan or vegetarian options; the three-course menus include servings for two or four, depending on the restaurant.
Two local musical groups, The Cover Girls and The Undulations, will provide online entertainment.
Cara Gregor, an art instructor with Sierra 2’s Learnery, will give an art lesson with drawing materials included in your Porch Picnic bag.
Log on to Sierra2.org for detailed information and to purchase your Porch Picnic dinner. A few days before the event, participants will receive an email with the unique Zoom and YouTube links for the art project and music.
This year’s fall fundraiser is an attempt to offset revenue losses while the Sierra 2 Center is closed under COVID-19 restrictions. It’s SCNA’s way of bringing the neighborhood together while we continue to shelter in place.
