Stewards is proud to present the 5th Annual Sunset Dinner! Join us for a magical evening on Saturday, August 12th, as we honor the legacy of world renowned potter Marguerite Wildenhain, and the lives of the students she touched. The event will benefit Pond Farm Pottery and the ongoing work that Stewards is doing to stabilize and restore this historic site.
An opening reception will start at 5:00 pm at Pond Farm with appetizers and champagne, while Pond Farm alumni take guests on an interpretive tour of the building. Guests may then mosey up to Schoolhouse Flat at 6:00 pm for dinner, to enjoy breathtaking views of Austin Creek State Recreation Area's 5,700 acres.
Come enjoy a hearty gourmet meal prepared by local caterers, with refreshing wine pairings and live entertainment!
A shuttle service from the Stewards office to the dinner venue will be available at 4:45 pm. Please call (707) 869-9177 to reserve a seat.
