A few weeks ago we attended a fundraiser at the beautiful and historic Holman Ranch. This event helps the community put on a safe and alcohol free party for the graduating seniors on graduation night - known to everyone as "Sober Grad". It was a great event and all of the funds raised will go to make sure that the high school grads celebrate their special day in a safe fun place. The Holman Ranch hacienda plays host to many fabulous weddings, and you can see why after looking at these photos! The event featured close to a dozen local restaurants serving up their favorite dishes, along with Holman Ranch wines. There was also live music and dancing and a large silent auction. We bid on 3-day passes to the Laguna Seca Grand Prix and won! It was such a fun night spent with our parents, sampling the local fares, sipping on some tasty wines and all for a good cause! Take a look at the pictures below of our favorite bites.

They served two of our favorite Holman Wines, the Kelly's Press - Pinot Noir and the Pinot Gris.
Incase you were still hungry after eating the chefs' dishes you could stop by and sample from the giant charcuterie table!
Chef Greg and Katie from Will's Fargo served yummy goat cheese and spicy strawberry jam crostini and a delicious pate.
The desert bar included bubbly of course!
Bernardus Lodge Chef Cal served up some a lovely chilled green gazpacho with yogurt and Carmel Valley olive oil.
