Tickets available for 2nd annual Mayors' Winemaker Dinner in Atascadero

Tickets are being sold for the second annual Mayors’ Winemaker Dinner in Atascadero on June 22. Proceeds will go toward completing a new performance venue at Atascadero Lake.

The dinner, sponsored by Atascadero Kiwanis Club and the City of Atascadero, will begin at 5 p.m. at the Pavilion on the Lake, with dinner at 6:30 p.m. The annual Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival will be held the next day from 4 to 8 p.m.

The lakeside park has featured a bandstand since 1915. The Atascadero Kiwanis Club has remodeled the bandstand several times. It hopes to tear down the existing one in the fall, then finish building the new one in time for the 2013 concert season. The tentative cost of the new bandstand is $80,000.

For winemaker dinner tickets, which cost $75, call Cathy Van Orman at 464-0632 or visit the club’s website at www.atascadero  .

For more information about the bandstand project, call Orman, or call Lon Allan at 466-8529, or go to the club’s website.
