Ukiah, CA – The MESA Club of Mendocino College will be hosting their fourth annual wine and food pairing entitled, Vine and Dine on April 28th, 2007 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:30p.m. at the Ukiah Valley Conference Center. This dinner will consist of a four-course meal planned and prepared by a representation of Ukiah Valley restaurants including Patrona, Oco Time, Schat’s Bakery, Ukiah Brewing Company and the Mendocino College Culinary Arts Club. Each of these courses will be paired with a wine chosen by wine makers from Fetzer Vineyards, Bonterra Vineyards, Parducci, Brutocao and Tulip Hill Winery. The chefs and winemakers will discuss the wine and food pairings.
The suggested donation amount for this event is $60/person and $110 per couple. The ticket donation includes a sit down four course meal, wine, beer and stand-up appetizers. This event will include a silent and live auction. Tickets are available at the MESA Center, room 403 at Mendocino College or by calling 468-3023.
Last year’s dinner was a sold-out event. “Last year’s dinner was a huge success.” states Leroy Hansen, MESA Club President. “This event showed huge community support for students and was a result of team work. This event encouraged students to work together because we saw how our collective efforts can lead to success. The success of this dinner inspired us to make it an annual event.” Over $9,000 was raised to provide 20 incoming, continuing and transferring students with scholarships.
The MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) Program works to increase the number of financially and educationally disadvantaged students who transfer to four-year universities and earn degrees in mathematics, science or engineering. This program provides academic support programs and creates a community of learners based on academic achievement.
