Beer is provided by Lagunitas Brewing Company, and libations by Sonoma Coast Spirits, with an opportunity to taste their grappa selection post-dinner, paired with Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates.

The Farm to sTable Dinner includes a variety of cash and product sponsorship opportunities with associated benefits such as event tickets, signage and other branding opportunities, social media exposure, and more.
