Stoneking Auction Lot 12 - Dinner for 10 and Campesino - CLOSED

#1 Post by Brian Tuite » December 8th, 2017, 12:18 pm

Lot 12 is Deja Vu all over again. Back during the Tubbs Fire Relief Auction Macario Montoya offered a Private Dinner for 10 accompanied by Campesino Cellars Wines at the Napa Foodie Social Club called The Kitchen Collective. High bidder JSchneider outbid Mike Stoneking at the last minute and then in a selfless act of charity donated the dinner to 5 Firefighters and their Wives so they could be honored for all they do. Only problem was that public employees cannot accept gifts of this kind and believe me we tried all around. In Joe’s words “Who would have thought it would be so hard to give away a nice dinner?”

Well here it is again for another charity auction, thanks to Joe for his donation:

Dinner and Campesino Cellars Wine for 10 people at the Kitchen Collective in Napa.

Enjoy your own private dinner party in one of the hottest new spots in the valley. Very exclusive but with the winning bid you’re in.

From the donor:

Hi Everyone

The auction lot I am donating is a dinner for 10 people and me... Kitchen Collective is a Foodie Social Club in Napa. Basically the winner of this auction will get to pick a meal of his or her choice. We can do roasts, steaks, ethnic themes, make fresh pasta, you name it and we can do it. I will work with the chefs at Kitchen Collective to procure the necessary items for your meal, and then we will have a fun interactive cooking session. Your guests can be as involved as they want or they can sit back and watch as we cook a fantastic meal. Basically, think of inviting over 9 of your friends for a meal, yet you don't have to prep or clean up. Oh and wine. You will be sipping on all the wine you want. Campesino Cellars is a small rhone wine producer in Napa/Sonoma. We produce a Grenache Rosè, a fun white called Alina which is a Marsanne/Roussanne Blend, a 100% Grenache, a 100% Syrah and a GSM blend. Expiration is 10/22/18.. Dinner must be scheduled at least two weeks prior and must be Wednesday-Sunday.

Note to high bidder: Just in case you cannot find enough people to fill the bill my Wife and I are available that night. ;-)

Bidding will close on Thursday December 14th @ 12:01 am PST.

I can bid $1,200 if the expiration can be pushed 1 week back to 10/28/2018. Sorry, not trying to be difficult, but that weekend really works much, much better for me.
