“A Night for the Nutcracker” gala fundraiser is happening on Oct. 27, to raise money for the North County Dance and Performing Arts Center. It will take place at the beautiful Le Vigne Winery at 6 p.m.

Enjoy a festive night in the Le Vigne Winery barrel room located in beautiful Paso Robles wine country. The gala will feature a champagne welcome reception including a variety of passed hors-d’oeuvres and gourmet cheese stations, a silent auction with exciting offerings such as a trip to Tuscany and one-of-a-kind themed baskets, music by DJ Sparrow, dinner presented by Paso Catering Company and a Land of Sweets live dessert auction.

Your hosts for the evening will be the talented and charming Nutcracker dancers. Take a photo by the Stahlbaum Christmas Tree with Clara & Fritz and be enchanted as the Sugar Plum Fairy performs a selection of her world-famous variation. Other memorable and entertaining characters will make appearances for photo opportunities and vignette performances throughout the night.

Premium themed VIP tables of eight, as well as general seating, are available. Proceeds benefit the North County Dance and Performing Foundation (NCDPAF) and their production of The Nutcracker Ballet, a holiday tradition in our community for over 20 years.
