Mark your calendar for Sunday, April 28, 2019, when the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature will hold its fabulous Annual Spring Barbecue, sponsored by Judy and Jack Stapelmann, at a delightful venue. Every year our barbecue gives you the opportunity to spend an afternoon at a beautiful outdoor location somewhere in Santa Barbara County while supporting the Wildling at its most important fundraiser of the year.
We are delighted to announce that the 16th annual barbecue will be held at Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos from 3 PM to 6PM. With a storied past in wine history, one that helped to establish Santa Barbara County as a significant wine growing region, we are honored to be at the now Foley-owned property, in the middle of rolling hills, mature vineyards, and distant mountains.
This year we honor Jean Schuyler with the Wilderness Spirit Award. Jean has spent a lifetime supporting nonprofits throughout Santa Barbara County and has been a very generous supporter of the Wildling and other environmental organizations. She truly has a heart that embraces wilderness preservation and education and has made a real difference in our community!
I invite you to be a sponsor of this great event. For our primary fundraiser of the year, your sponsorship will help to ensure the Wildling’s continued ability to provide a variety of quality exhibits and programs for our community. Your name will be linked with an event with exposure to thousands through our various promotional opportunities. Sponsors and their guests will be invited to an exclusive VIP reception at 2 PM before the start of the event to meet our honoree and learn more about our venue.
We hope you will agree that becoming a partner in this, our primary fundraiser is a wonderful way for you to help the Wildling to continue to offer the quality exhibitions, programming, and educational outreach that we provide to our Santa Barbara County community, and expose your brand to a demographic of people who love art and the great outdoors.
