The El Dorado Arts Council’s signature event, Apassionato For the Arts will be held Saturday, Oct. 26 at Serrano Country Club, 5005 Serrano Parkway in El Dorado Hills.

The term apassionato signifies how a musical piece should be played: passionately and with great emotion. The members of the El Dorado Arts Council hope that this event will likewise stir the community members to passionately invest in the arts for El Dorado County. The council’s mission is to raise funds to support arts projects including arts in education.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. where casual elegance and sunset views strike a perfect chord for the evening. As guests arrive, they will be welcomed with champagne and wine, contributed by the award-winning El Dorado County wineries.

It promises to be an extraordinary night, with Serrano Master Chef Kevin Nichols’ presentation of delectable comestibles, including dinner.

Artists will perform and professional auctioneer Steve Godfryd will dazzle the crowd with his bid-calling as he auctions off the exciting items and experiences that have been generously donated to the affair.

The El Dorado Arts Council, a nonprofit organization, promotes the arts, offers arts programs to schools and the public, provides a variety of services to arts organizations and artists of all practices, and produces the highest quality community events. With a countywide mission, the El Dorado Arts Council also has a broad view of the arts. Visual, performing, literary and new art forms are part of the vibrant communities in the county, and essential to children’s learning.

“ The Arts Council is a small organization with a big vision,” said Deb Jensen, executive director. “Our county has so much personality. Each community is distinct. The arts council strives to form partnerships with organizations such as community theater groups, chambers of commerce and business associations, schools and local governments to engage residents and visitors in the joy of creativity, either as audience participants or artists. The arts spark imagination. And, that is appropriate at any age and in any endeavor.”

Dan Cattone, Serrano resident and president of the El Dorado Arts Council board of directors, originated Apassionato in 2012 as a premier fundraiser for the arts in the county.

“Raising funds for the arts has been challenging during the great recession. Now, with the economy recovering, we hope to have robust support at Apassionato. The kind of community I want to live in pulsates with music and theater and art — for people at all stages of life. In my life, it’s as important as a great glass of wine or a round of golf,” Cattone said.

Serrano Country Club was selected as the venue for Apassionato after a comprehensive search and numerous site visits.

“The committee loved the club’s beautiful view, the grand piano and the chef. We also deeply appreciated the fantastic service provided by the event staff,” said Cattone. “Now, our task is to make this year’s event as successful as possible. It’s for the arts. Guests should be prepared to be surprised.”

Auction items include: two nights at the Little River Inn on the Mendocino Coast; one night and two days San Francisco sailing experience for four; a farm-to-fork winemaker dinner for 10 at Camino’s Chateau Davell Boutique Winery; Gourmet cheese and wine pairing from Holly’s Hill Vineyards for 14 guests; festive wine pairing dinner at Miraflores Winery for 24 guests; and a San Juan Island Cabin Getaway for up to six plus and airfare credit.

The board of directors of the council thank the sponsors: Serrano Associates, El Dorado Savings Bank, AAA, Madroña Vineyards, Miraflores Winery, Holly’s Hill Vineyards, Chateau Davell, Emily and Kyle Smith, Les and Lexi Brown, and Dan and Joey Cattone.

Tickets are $100 per person. To purchase tickets to the event, or view the online catalog of extraordinary experiences and objets d’arts go to eldoradoartscouncil.org/events/apassionato or call 530-295-3496.
