The Rubicon Trail Foundation announced the fifth annual Black Tie & Boots Dinner & Auction, happening March 9 at the American Legion Hall on Greenstone Road in Placerville.
This year the event will be honoring the annual “ROCK” award to James “Jack” Sweeney for his contribution to the Rubicon Trail and the Rubicon Trail Foundation.
He has worked tirelessly to formalize the easement with the Forest Service and in doing so, kept lawsuits at bay. He, with the support of the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors, kept the interest of the public in mind when advocating for year-round motorized access on the Rubicon Trail during his terms as El Dorado County supervisor. Sweeney is an avid supporter of the trail and the Rubicon Trail Foundation.
Tickets are on sale now. Call Lori Warden at 530-722-7897 to reserve your spot. Check the foucnadtion’s Website at rubicontrail foundation.org for more information.
