A Matter of Taste

March 5, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

 

Transport yourself back in time to a chic 1960’s cocktail party in New York City. Ladies dig out that amazing vintage party dress, gentlemen grab your fedora and some dapper dud’s for this years “MAD About the ARTS ~ AMOT goes retro” our 18th annual A Matter of Taste fundraiser for Nevada City School of the Arts, Saturday, March 5th 6 to 11pm at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City.

Doors open at 6pm with a complimentary glass of wine, 2 no-host bars, 1960s-style appetizers & classic cocktails, swanky music by NCSA music teacher Heather Grove and SierraCapella and hundreds of fine items in a silent auction. Following the auction, DJ Brian Hartman will spin the tunes for dancing with abandon. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.  Bid early, bid often!

Nevada County’s premier fundraising event has better auction items than ever before, and more room to view them! In addition to beautiful works of art from local artists and our students, the silent auction is a collection of the practical to the unusual to the one-of-a-kind. Bid on trips to New Orleans, Costa Rica and Bourbon Tasting in Kentucky; Vacation rentals for
skiing, summer fun, and romantic coastal get-aways; tickets to festivals and concerts, and as always, generous donations from local restaurants, artists, jewelers, health clubs, farmers and more. The auction tables are full of treasures at A Matter of Taste.

One of the first public charter schools in the state of California, NCSA serves a diverse population of over 400 K-8 students, offering foundational and curriculum-integrated arts instruction, as well as music, dance, theater, film and other electives. Unlike most traditional public schools, NCSA must pay to rent facilities, and thus relies on fundraisers such as A Matter of Taste to fund its highly enriched curriculum.
