GALA OPENING RECEPTION
Friday, June 24, 5 pm – 7 pm
The gala opening reception will be held at a French inspired home overlooking the ocean in Little River. The home is situated spectacularly on the edge of a cliff at the base of an old quarry. The formal French garden sits in ordered juxtaposition to the soaring quarry walls. With a nod to the French influence of the venue we will be serving hors d'oeuvres and a selection of Anderson Valley sparkling wines.
