JAMESTOWN — In partnership with California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation, Tuolumne County’s Rotary and Kiwanis clubs will host the second annual “Spotlight on Railtown” fundraiser on Saturday evening, July 20 at Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) in Jamestown.

The goal of this special fundraising event is to support the continuing operation of Railtown 1897 SHP.

The festivities will begin at 6, with local wines and delicious appetizers served in and around the park’s signature facility, the Historic Jamestown Roundhouse and Shops.

As guests tour the facility, they will enjoy live music, turntable demonstrations, historic railcar rides, Sierra No. 3 “Movie Star Locomotive” in operation and a silent auction.

For a relaxing grand finale to the evening, guests will enjoy a memorable ride aboard Railtown 1897s excursion train, with silent auction results announced as the train arrives back at the depot.

“Spotlight on Railtown” is presented by the Sonora Rotary Club, ‘49er Rotary Club, Twain Harte Rotary Club, and Kiwanis Club of Sonora, and sponsored by the Black Oak Casino, Chicken Ranch Casino & Bingo, H&R Block of Sonora, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation.

Featured wines will include Chatom Vineyards from Calaveras County, Gianelli Vineyards from Jamestown, Indigeny Reserve and Mt. Brow Winery both from Sonora, and Twisted Oak Winery and Zucca Mountain Vineyards both from Murphys.

Tickets for “Spotlight on Railtown” are $50 per person and all proceeds directly benefit the historic park. Advance tickets are available online at railtown1897.org or by calling 209-984-3953.
