Wine by the Screen

Raise a glass to coastal conservation during Friends of the Dunes’ annual fundraiser, Wine by the Screen! Previously known as Wine by the Sea, this event has been modified so that supporters of coastal stewardship and education can enjoy live music, art, and local food and wine from the comfort of their own home. Tune into the Friends of the Dunes’ website or Facebook event page on October 3, 2020 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. for free entertainment, including live music from the Spindrifters, live painting from talented artist Matt Beard, and exciting conservation updates from Executive Director, Mike Cipra and Board President, Carol Vander Meer. Celebrate coastal conservation by sipping some wine and perusing our silent auction for new outdoor gear from brands such as Patagonia, Osprey, and Kokatat, as well as staycation opportunities, experiences, local artwork, and more. Auction items will be available to bid on from October 3 to October 9, 2020, through the generous support of our business partner Carl Johnson Co. A link to the auction will be made available on our website on October 3. Remember to pre-order a Pour and Restore Care Package for maximum enjoyment! For a donation made in advance, Friends of the Dunes volunteers will deliver local wine, cheese, chocolate, and other goodies in a limited edition tote bag straight to your door for contactless delivery! Choose between red or white wine, or add another bottle for an additional donation. For free contactless delivery the day of the event, please have your care package pre-ordered by noon on October 2, 2020. Delivery is limited to a 20-mile distance from the Humboldt Coastal Nature Center. Orders made in the afternoon of the 2nd or on the day of the event will be available for pick up only at the Humboldt Coastal Nature Center. To order a Pour and Restore Care Package, please visit our website. Supplies are limited, so pre-order is recommended. A big thank you to all who donated to our silent auction, event sponsors, and all the wineries and local businesses that donated wine and goodies for our Pour and Restore Care Packages! All generous event sponsors, including participating wineries, are acknowledged on our website. Proceeds from this event will support Friends of the Dunes programs including free environmental education field trips for local schools and stewardship of rare coastal dune habitat.
