Wine for Wheels 2011

Biking for a Better World and PlumpJack are teaming up for the 3rd annual “Wine for Wheels” dinner and live wine auction on Saturday, September 10, at 7:00pm in the PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn Conference Center. The dinner includes a delicious four-course menu from Chef Wyatt and the PJ kitchen team paired with some spectacular wines from the generous winemakers who have donated for the event (see list below).

Eat, drink and be merry! The event supports local non-profit Biking for a Better World by helping to fund its programs and administrative costs. BBW programs directly improve peoples’ quality of life through bicycles by distributing equipment to children, disabled athletes and other communities in need of bicycles.

Get your tickets at http://www.bikingforabetterworld.org/ as soon as possible, as seats are soon to sell out and you don’t want to miss this fun evening of great food, wine, friends, and philanthropy!
